WHS Stages Community Clean-Up

NextStep and St. Vinnie's are partnering with Willamette for Saturday's free Bethel Recycling Round-Up.

The Free Recycling Round-Up is returning to Willamette High School this Saturday, March 5th.

Willamette’s National Honor Society students will be accepting unwanted household items that can be reused, recycled, or otherwise kept out of the landfill.

This includes unwanted appliances, toys, clothing, exercise equipment, styrofoam, monitors, computers, printers, TVs and other electronic devices.

St. Vincent de Paul and NextStep Recycling are partnering with the Wil-Hi students for this free recycling opportunity. Bring your recyclable items to Willamette’s north parking lot Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

These items cannot be accepted: Building materials, doors, windows, blinds, fluorescent lights, copiers, office partions/room dividers, chemicals, storage sheds, and tires. Propane tanks and huge loads of styrofoam must be taken directly to St. Vincent de Paul.

Feline With Headgear Makes Rare Appearance

The Cat in the Hat is escorted through Prairie Mountain by first graders Shane Chevalier and Coral Garcia Rios.

Straight out of the pages of a Dr. Seuss book, the Cat in the Hat walked right into Prairie Mountain’s first grade classrooms for Read Across America Day.

The annual celebration of reading comes on March 2, the birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known as children’s author Dr. Seuss.

Complete with a hat, whiskers, gloves, bow tie and a tail, Dayna Mitchell was seemingly the Cat in the Hat come alive. She read Green Eggs and Ham to the first graders, encouraged them to keep reading, and left many of them in awe.

Read Across America Day was recognized with guest book readers in elementary schools throughout Bethel today.

Bethel Schools Return To Normal Schedule

All Bethel schools are open and operating on their normal schedules today, Friday, February 25.

Cold weather remains but school buses have been able to transport students on their regular timetables.

There are some very slick spots on the roads, and as always parents are encouraged to use their best judgment on whether the conditions are safe enough to get their kids to school.

The forecast also calls for continued dry weather through Friday.
