Town Hall Meeting Tuesday
Bethel will host a Town Hall Meeting featuring Representative Julie Fahey, Bethel’s State Senator James Manning, our City Councilor Greg Evans, County Commissioner Pat Farr, Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis, and Bethel School Board Chair Dawnja Johnson. Everyone is welcome. Bring your issues relevant to the Bethel community:
- Willamette High School Lecture Hall (in main office building)
- Tuesday, December 12th, 6:30 p.m.
We will be implementing “All for Books” donation with this season’s book fair. What that means is that we are asking for $1 donation and with all the money donated by our generous staff and students, Scholastic will purchase books for families who were hit hard with floods on the east coast. The “All for Books” program is traditionally networked with specific organizations such as “Kids In Need Foundation,” “Reader, Inc.” and the “National Center for Families Learning”. However, with thousands if not millions of families affected by floods or hurricanes this year, Scholastic is taking initiative by being our vehicle to distribute books to specific areas.
Meadow View’s Season of Giving
Our winter Season of Giving event began on November 13th and ends on December 15th. We are collecting new/unused children’s jackets/sweatshirts, P.J.’s and socks to be distributed to Meadow View students in need.
If you would like to donate, please pick up a snow flake in our front office for items needed. Monetary donations are gladly accepted and will go towards purchasing items on the list.
Please bring unwrapped donations to the office no later than December 8th.
Thank you for supporting Meadow View Students and Families!

Thank you to all of our Meadow View families who supported our canned food drive. We raised 5,559 lbs of food! Our fabulous PTO joined forces with our middle school student helpers and collected, weighed, and recorded the amount of food each homeroom class brought in. After school on 11/16, our PTO and parent volunteers sorted all the food to ensure each family in need received a nice variety of food. 20 Meadow View families received food boxes.
