In an effort to fund extra learning opportunities for its students, Kalapuya will stage its annual garage sale this Saturday, September 24th, from 8:30-3:00. They are accepting donations this week from Bethel staff and the local community. Anything that will sell is welcome; just drop items off at Kalapuya between 7:00-4:00 this week. Some large items may even be able to be picked up for you. For more information, contact Kee Zublin at KHS: email@example.com (541) 607-9853.
Last year the money raised from this event helped send Kalapuya students to the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland and a Deschutes rafting trip.
It’s back! The Bethel Education Foundation’s Bethel Staff Talent Show is October 5th. You’re encouraged to buy your tickets now because this show was a huge hit and sold out last year. Kalapuya’s staff plans a show-stopping display of previously-hidden talent! Tickets are $7 each and are now on sale at the school office, and I strongly recommend that you act quickly. All the money raised from this event goes back into Bethel classrooms in the form of BEF grants for educational programs and activities.

In this I am not alone; I have had the opportunity to work over the summer getting to know the stellar Kalapuya staff, who are all incredibly dedicated, passionate, and uniquely qualified to serve your students.
Kalapuya will be changing in some significant ways this year. Continue reading
