Last Friday students from Kalapuya High School and members from the Bethel Construction and Green Trades Program took part in the Hope in Action Youth Conference – Green Career and Education Fair. This fair presented youth with the major ecological and environmental issues that face our world today through group discussions, small workshops, and even a short presentation from our very own Eugene city mayor, Kitty Piercy. The event culminated with various small panel discussions about current “green” jobs that are forecasted to flourish in the coming decades, giving youth “hope” for the future of our economy and ideas of what environmentally conscious jobs they may acquire.
On Saturday April 20th, 3 students from Kalapuya had the opportunity to speak to a panel of interested Eugene citizens at the Earth Day Eugene Celebration in support of Partners for Sustainable Schools. Genesis Ortega, Holly Frey and Nathaniel Peaslee discussed how Kalapuya is aiming to become a “sustainable” school and what projects and programs are affiliated with this goal. Some concepts that they presented covered the future of a student designed garden and large-scale greenhouse that will be constructed on the south end of our campus in June. They also talked about the bee-keeping program that is already underway and how the Bethel Construction and Green Trades Program is helping youth get work experience in the field of “green” jobs. A big kudos goes out to these young adults that set their nerves aside to talk and answer questions in front of some very impressed adults.

Explore the world in three hours at the Bethel International Fair. On Friday, April 26th at 6:00 p.m. Prairie Mountain School will host this free event that will include tasty international food, fun entertainment, and an opportunity to meet international students from more than a dozen countries on four different continents. Bethel students will receive their own passports and collect stamps as they learn facts about cultures from around the world. The International Fair is brought to you by the Willamette High School Latinos Unidos club.
Back by popular demand, we will be hosting a Kalapuya Fair this Thursday (April 18th) from 6:30 to 7:30 pm! The Kalapuya Open House earlier this year was a huge success, and students and staff decided to host parents and community members once again to show off the students’ accomplishments.
This year students put forward considerable work to improve their writing skills and prepare for the state test. Prior to Spring Break all students took the state-required writing test. The last two weeks of this term students have been taking elective classes (including drama, beekeeping, film-making, cooking, college visitations, physical education, and art).
Students will be highlighting their work in an Open House atmosphere from 6:30 to 7:00 – and we will hear directly from students at 7:00 as they share out what they have learned.
Parent/Guardian participation brings meaning to every open house and student-led conference we host. Thank you in advance for coming.
