Summer School Welcomes Eager Students

Bethel's annual summer school helps students maintain the skills they learned over the past school year.

First through eighth graders are enjoying the small group instruction at Bethel’s annual summer school.

360 Bethel students have passed the halfway mark of the 5 week session being held at Meadow View School.

They’re receiving extra instruction in reading and math in a program that’s proven to be successful in maintaining the skills learned during the previous school year.

Summer school students accepted invitations to be a part of the program. They are also being provided free breakfast, lunch and transportation.

Family Movie Night Benefits Kilcullen Garden

The community can support a good cause while enjoying a fun family night: an outdoor movie in Willamette High School’s Wolverine Stadium.

This Friday night, July 22, Willamette Leadership students will be showing Despicable Me on a giant screen in the stadium.

It’s just $3 per person or $10 per family, with all the proceeds going to the new Chris Kilcullen Memorial Garden at Willamette.

The gates open at 8:30 with the movie starting at 9:00. Families are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs.

Chris Kilcullen was a WHS grad, and current students are working on a plan to convert a courtyard at the school into a garden in Kilcullen’s memory.

The grant funds will be used to purchase clinical equipment that the Health Center was not able to get donated, including a sterilizer, defibrillator, centrifuge, nebulizer, oxygen tank, oximeter, stethoscope, stadiometer, and dozens of other pieces of medical equipment.

The Bethel Student Health Center is in a refurbished space in an old Home Ec room at Cascade Middle School. It has been built, furnished, and will operate solely on grants, donations, and the billing of patient insurance.

While no school district funds are being used for the Student Health Center, all Bethel School District students will benefit from its low-cost medical services.

The Health Center will be open on August 8th and 9th to provide physical exams for fall sports. Know any kids who need a physical? Call the Health Center at (541) 607-1430 to make an appointment.
