Our second annual Monster Mash was wonderful!  Students and parents came dressed up in costumes danced and participated in carnival games.  A big thank you to our PTO team and volunteers who made the night possible.

School Safety Training

The protection and safe-keeping of all students is our #1 priority. That is why all Bethel School District staff will take part in school safety training on October 10th, a no-school day for educator training.

This workshop will make sure our staff members have a shared understanding of how to respond in emergency situations, especially a worst-case scenario of an armed intruder on campus. It is sad that there is a need to adequately prepare our staff for such a remote possibility, but we believe it is better to train for a worst-case scenario and never use that training than to sit back and just hope a life-threatening event never happens.

Every school in our district already practices fire drills, lockdowns, and earthquake drills. This training will add to our staff’s abilities to respond in extreme emergencies in order to keep students safe. Contact me Erika.case@bethel.k12.or.us if you have any questions.

PTO Meeting

The next PTO meeting at Meadow View will be on Monday, October 6th from 6 to 7 p.m.

October Story-Time In Bethel

All Bethel pre-schoolers are welcomed to weekly Story Time at the Bethel Family Resource Center, located inside Malabon Elementary.

Every Thursday from 11:00-12:30 kids will hear a story, receive a snack and take part in an activity. This will build your children’s confidence in a school setting, peer play and literacy skills.

The Family Resource Center also offers drop-in time on Thursdays from 1:30-4:00, with activities this month including silly squash based art, playing with veggies to create wacky monsters, painting with veggies, and feeling things in mystery boxes.

For more information call Anne with the Bethel Family Resource Center at 541-461-6421, ext 2539.

Picture Day Reminder

Wednesday is picture day! Bring your best smile. :)

Cough medicine reminder

 Parents, please be aware that our school medication policy includes such things as cough drops and cough/cold medicines.

 Over the counter (OTC) medications also require a completed medication form and a parent signature with specific dispensing instructions.  OTC medication must follow the manufacturer instructions and be in manufacturer packaging.

 So, if your child needs a cough drop or cough medicine at school the parent/guardian needs to bring in the OTC medication in the original packaging along with filling out the Medication Authorization form.  The student should not bring in a handful of cough drops to give to the health room assistant or keep in their backpack/pocket.
