Pat Farr, Eugene City Counselor and former Bethel School District Board Member, recently stepped in as ‘Principal for the Day’ at Kalapuya High School. Students welcomed him into the classrooms and were able to share their excitement about the new programs at Kalapuya. Counselor Farr also shared some of his experiences with public service and engaged students in lively discussions about current political and social issues. One student approached him on his way out, asking for guidance on setting up a social service project to help homeless people. This spark was the catalyst for a larger discussion, and Pat has returned to help students ‘think big’ about involving the community in discussing the homeless situation in Eugene.

This year’s talent show was a great success, raising thousands of dollars for the Bethel Education Foundation!2 Kalapuya rocked the house with a unique rap/dance performance. The staff is already planning for next years show!

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.
