Hi Meadow View Families,
I am pleased to share the news that the results of Meadow View’s water tests are in, and our school has no levels of lead in any of the 119 sources tested that would necessitate any attention.
This outcome is not a surprise because lead was banned from fixtures, flux and solder well before Meadow View was built. Interestingly enough, receiving the water test results has taken much longer than anticipated because of the high number of schools throughout Oregon testing their water this summer.
As always, let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Meadow View Principal
Bethel School District has proactively chosen to test the water in our schools, including Meadow View, responding to concerns raised throughout the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.
The samples from all drinking water sources in all Bethel schools will be tested as soon as school is out for summer. This will allow an independent professional environmental service to access the water sources without interruption in order to ensure the most accurate testing.
The samples may take at least 10 business days to process but the results will be immediately shared with families and staff. While there are no federal or state requirements that schools test their water, the safety of the students in our care is our highest priority.
Excitement, smiles and even some tears were seen by some of this years’ Willamette Seniors and Meadow View staff members!
Willamette’s graduating class of 2016 paraded through Meadow View with great enthusiasm! They wore their caps and gowns and celebrated academic excellence in Bethel. In addition to Meadow View, the Willamette seniors visited all Bethel elementary and middle schools. Our graduates are proud products of many caring teachers and staff from throughout their educational careers. The Bethel Grad Walk is designed to show a graduate’s appreciation to all of Bethel’s educators, celebrate/promote graduation from Willamette with younger students, and to foster the dream of college/career after graduating from Willamette.
Meadow View 5th graders were bubbling with excitement as they headed off on a three day experience to Outdoor School…
Meadow View and Danebo 5th grade students will enjoy lots of fun and educational activities, stay in cabins and keep warm by a campfire each night. Thanks to our wonderful 5th grade team, Mrs. Trammell, Mrs. McKinnis and Mr. Simpson who partnered with Danebo’s 5th grade team. The teachers received a grant to fund the trip and planned for months to ensure students have a great experience. A special thank you to the many parents that will be chaperoning. This opportunity wouldn’t be possible without your support.
Project M.A.H.I.T.A – Murals Aiding Health Information To All
Mahita means “to see” in the Malagasy language, spoken on the island nation of Madagascar. Meadow View 3rd grade students are working on the creation of a mural with an important health message that will be shipped to Madagascar and displayed by Malagasy health education in a rural village. This important mural will convey information visually that teaches an important message or skill. This project not only benefits the children of Madagascar but Meadow View students gain a global perspective while making a meaningful connection and artistic contribution to a rural community in Madagascar. Stay tuned for more about this important ongoing project! Learn more by visiting: http://coriehinton.wix.com/mahita
