Walk and Roll To School

Walk + Roll.Walk and Roll to School Day is tomorrow, Wednesday May 15th 

To celebrate, schools across Oregon are holding Walk and Roll events that challenge students, families and educators to walk, bike or scooter to school.  These challenges are a great reminder of the benefits of active transportation.  Try ditching the car on May 15th and celebrate your health, the environment, and school spirit.  Live too far to bike or walk to school?  Try parking the family car a few blocks from the school and walking the rest of the way.  You can even participate by walking to and from your school bus stop. 

Irving students who Walk and Roll to school on Wednesday May 15th will be entered into a drawing for prizes including a scooter!

No School Wednesday

This is a reminder that there will be no school in Bethel this Wednesday, May 8th. Eugene Education Association leadership in Bethel has indicated that the majority of licensed school staff have pledged to a “walkout” in order to rally for increased state funding for K-12 education.  Here is more information on the walkout from the Register-Guard. Because of the walkout, we will close all Bethel schools for the day.

The District has arranged for free breakfast and lunch to be served on Wednesday at Cascade Middle School. The meals will be free to any Bethel children ages 1-18. No registration is required, but we cannot provide food for parents or guardians and all food must be eaten on site.

  • Breakfast is from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m., and lunch is 11:30 – 1:00 p.m. Child supervision will not be provided.

In addition, the Bethel Health Center will be open Wednesday. The Health Center is located on the north side of Cascade Middle School and it serves all Bethel students and Bethel staff and their families. Call the Health Center at 541-607-1430.

Contact our school office with any questions.

Counselor’s Corner

May 2019

Wow – the year keeps cruising right along!  In May, I will be coming to classes for my final guidance lessons for this year.  During my guidance visits, we will play Jeopardy review games for the year.  The game is played with each class against me and we’ve had a blast reviewing previous lessons and finding areas to learn for next year! 

We are currently in the middle of our final round of counseling small groups which will finish the week of June 10th.  As with each round of counseling groups, students can be referred both by staff and/or families, so please feel free to reach out at the beginning of next year if you’re interested in having your child participate.

Additionally, there is an important and exciting event coming to LCC this Saturday at 10:00am.  Please see the flyer below and bring your experience and expertise!

Learning the skill of Archery

This spring every 5th grade student in Bethel gets the opportunity to attend Outdoor School. Irving 5th grade students are at Outdoor School this week.  The purpose of Outdoor School is to provide students with hands-on, local science education to support and extend what students have been learning in the classroom.  Irving students are having lots of fun, building teamwork skills, making new friends, and engaged in exciting learning.  Students even get to zipline out at Grove Camp, located near Dorena Lake in Cottage Grove.
