The all-district track meet for grade 4/5 teams is history. Yesterday- the 26th- at Willamette High’s track, several hundred athletes from the seven
Bethel elementary schools met and competed at various track and field events. Clear Lake’s coach, Sherry Martinel, was not only pleased with our team’s performance, but their team spirit at cheering on one another- and their great sportsmanship at cheering on the other schools. Congratulations to all the kids who competed. The last meet of the year is on May 9th, 4:00pm at Willamette.
Take a look at the story below and the number of students who had scores of 90% or more on their spelling test last Fall. Take a look at this picture; do you see anything different? Notice how many more students are improving at their spelling skills in Mrs. Johnson’s 2nd grade class. All of the students share that they practice, practice, and practice- and it sure does pay off.
The school-wide spelling bee will be held once again this year at Clear lake for students in grades 2-5. The finals are scheduled to take place May 31st. Stay tuned for more information on the exact time.
Each Fall the Oregon Lottery invites schools to enter their name for the “Scratch It For Schools” event held in the Spring. We entered our school and were drawn for the annual event. This morning at LCC, our PTO president Abe Gilliam, Matt Groff- husband of teacher Echo Groff, and three news team members from KMTR- Kelli Warner, Marc Mullins, and Jordan Steele went to work scratching tickets for Clear Lake. After the final bell and some counting, we earned $1,159 for the school. A BIG thanks to our team for their hard work helping the school.
With the snow bringing school closures, tonight’s Family Fun Night is cancelled. We have resceheduled the event to Thursday, April 19th- 6:30 -8:00pm.
