Crossing Guard Volunteers

Hello Clear Lake Families!

We are in need of a volunteer for an afternoon crossing guard! If you are willing to help out by being a crossing guard for our students from 2:45 – 3:15 we would greatly appreciate it! Please let the office know of your interest and we’ll be in touch!

Important dates to remember: 

October 11th – Inservice day – No school for students
October 14th – Jog-a-thon pledges due
October 15th – Picture Day!
October 17th – PTO meeting. We’d LOVE more parents to join! 6:30-7:30 in the Clear Lake Library.

Looking ahead to October!

Walk and Roll Day:
Wednesday, October 2nd is Walk and Roll to school Day. We encourage you to walk, bike, or carpool to school.

Back to School/Curriculum Night:
Thursday, October 3rd is Back to School/Curriculum Night from 6:00-7:00pm. This is a great chance for you to hear about what your child is learning this year as well as what the expectations are for learning and behavior. Please join us for a night of learning on October 3rd from 6:00-7:00!

Fall Jog-A-Thon:
Tuesday, October 8th from 2:00-2:55 is our Fall Jog-A-Thon! Your child has brought home a flyer as well as a pledge sheet. They can either get a pledge for each lap they run or a general flat rate “donation”. On October 8th, have your child bring a pledge sheet as well as any money they have collected. Once the jog-a-thon is over, we will give your child a tally of how many laps they ran and they can collect the rest of their pledges.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! If you’d like to be a helper on October 8th we would be so thankful! Make sure you fill out the background check form BEFORE October 8th and let our office know you want to volunteer for the day.

Picture Day:
Tuesday, October 15th is Picture Day! A notice was sent home in Tuesday Folders this week, look for reminders and order forms coming home soon.

It’s shaping up to be a busy October!


Sidewalk Construction News

Hello Clear Lake Families,

We wanted to bring you a construction update. The city has shut down the west side of the intersection at Primrose and Barger.

For Clear Lake families this means students walking or riding and heading straight across Barger will need to cross on the east side of the driveway leaving the Clear Lake/Shasta property. For students walking or riding and heading west down Barger, the crossing will be one block west of Primrose, near the fire station.

Below is an image for clarification.

Thank you for your patience while the city makes these improvements.

State Assessment Information

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments.
