Meadow View Happenings

Safety Week at Meadow View

This week is Safety Week! Meadow View staff and students will practice a lockdown drill, earthquake drill, directed evacuation and fire drill. These are rehearsals that we hope to never have to implement. However, we practice our drills to make sure everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergenSee the source imagecy.

Meadow View students and staff will practice a lockdown drill. Lockdown is the command used in the event of a threat-or perceived threat at or near our school. During our drill, an intercom announcement will inform staff and students that the drill will begin. Staff will then be asked to secure their classrooms. Teachers will lock classroom doors, close the blinds, move students away from the windows, turn out the lights, and ask students to remain quiet. The drill will last about five minutes, at which point another announcement will be made that the drill is over.

Teachers will talk to students to prepare them for the lockdown drill. They will let students know that during a lockdown it is very important to stay quiet and listen to adult directions in order to stay safe. Teachers will also share that in the event of imminent danger, they may ask students (depending on grade level) to help barricade the door to make sure no one can enter the room or ask students to quickly evacuate the building. Tools that teachers will be using during these conversations are scripts that were created by the District Safety Committee and videos that were created in partnership with Eugene Police Department.

You can find all of this information on the District’s School Safety page. It’s under the Parents tab on the Bethel home page: http://www.bethel.k12.or.us/district/school-safety/

We will also practice an earthquake drill and follow the Drop, Cover and Hold On protocol. Following our earthquake drill, we will conduct a directed evacuation. We intend to continue sharing our plans with you as we work together to ensure a safe school environment for all.

A New MV Playground is in the Works!

We are getting closer and closer to having a new playground! Last week, MV Principal, Erika Case, and Assistant Principal, Carmen Adler, met with Bethel District staff to review the bids and designs from three different companies. We have selected a local Oregon company, Wildwood Playgrounds NW, as our vendor. They have presented us with pictures and we can make a few tweaks. Today we had a meeting with the owners of Wildwood Playgrounds NW to make some adjustments and will see another proposal by the end of the week! We are so excited to have a new playground and we are hoping that it will be soon! There is a tight turnaround as we are up against the winter months that are headed our way. Stay tuned!

Thank you

We have the most amazing PTO and parent volunteers ever!

Many thanks to our PTO and parent volunteers that helped with Friday’s movie night. It was a huge success! Another thank you to Mike Tingue who provided the big screen. It was great to see our community come together for a fun filled movie night under the stars.

 

Our PTO has done so much for our school, our staff and our students. Last week, they decorated the staff room and  parents brought in delicious breakfast foods for staff. It was an amazing morning feast. Our PTO also brought Blue Valley Bistro, a Creswell Coffee Cart, to Meadow View and provided coffee for every staff member. Wow!  

 

Thank you for everything you do to make our MV team feel appreciated. We are so thankful for our PTO and numerous parent volunteers.

We have our first PTO meeting this Wednesday, September 18th from 6-7:15 in the South Media Center. Come learn more about upcoming events and the many ways PTO supports our school.

Information About State Tests

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Click here for more information. (PDF)
