Saturday’s annual Bethel Boosters’ Show n Shine Car Show will include a memorial for Eugene Police officer Chris Kilcullen.
The Willamette grad, killed in the line of duty, was a regular at the Show n Shine with his bright yellow 1955 Chevy truck.
If the weather is dry Chris’s truck will be at Saturday’s car show at Willamette High School. A memory book will also be provided for visitors to sign. In addition, a moment of silence will be followed by the playing of taps.
Admission is free to the 13th annual Show n Shine this Saturday, May 14, from 10:00-4:00 at Willamette. All proceeds from the show go toward supporting programs for Bethel School District children.
They’ve been wracking their brains for months on questions like this:
If burning one gallon of gas produces about 20 pounds of carbon dioxide, how many pounds of carbon dioxide are produced by a vehicle getting 20 miles per gallon on a 200-mile trip?
Shasta and Meadow View students answered similar quiz show-style questions against more than 40 teams in the annual University of Oregon Brain Bowl.
A Shasta 8th grade team finished second (the school’s third top-3 finish in four years) and Meadow View’s first-ever appearance earned a second place finish among 6th graders.
And now, the answer: 200 pounds of carbon.
The musical Annie takes the stage at Willamette High School this week.
The student production Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights will feature all the favorites from the Tony Award-winning musical, including “Tomorrow” and “It’s the Hard-Knock Life.”
WHS senior Kylee Wiser carries the lead role of Annie, an orphan during the Great Depression. Taking the stage alongside Annie and her faithful companion, Sandy the dog, are the familiar characters of Daddy Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, and the girls in the orphanage.
Willamette students have been rehearsing for weeks for the three-night performance, Thursday through Saturday at 7:00 p.m. in Powers Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
They deserve thanks every day, but this is the week to officially acknowledge our terrific teachers in Bethel.
Teacher Appreciation Week is an opportunity to recognize the crucial role our teachers play in the lives of our children on a daily basis. Bethel is fortunate to have a family of incredibly passionate, creative and dedicated educators.
Beyond this special week, here are a few quotes to keep in mind throughout the year:
“Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.”
“Teachers affect eternity; they can never tell where their influence stops.”
“A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.”
“Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions.”
“One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”
