Success Starts Early In Bethel

Preschool Promise students at Danebo start their path to success with a special graduation ceremony.

Bethel’s Class of 2031 is on its way!

Students in the Preschool Promise program at Danebo celebrated the completion of their introduction to early education, and the start of their successful path through Bethel schools.

Preschool Promise is a collaborative effort of Bethel School District, United Way of Lane County, the Lane Early Learning Alliance, and Family Connections of Lane County.

Funding from the state combines with a foundation in early education best practices to provide a strong start for children ages 3-5.

Congratulations to the children, parents and staff at Preschool Promise.

Commencement Honors The WHS Class of 2018

Whether indoors or outside, the graduation ceremony at Willamette traditionally concludes with mortarboards sent flying.

Close to 300 Willamette High School seniors walked across the stage to receive their diplomas as the graduating class of 2018.

Juanita Dominguez, Daniel Gerlach and David Trujillo delivered speeches, and Isaiah Moore and McKayla Webb performed musical numbers before a packed house in the WHS main gym.

Rain forced the commencement ceremony indoors for the second consecutive year but it didn’t detract from the event.

The 69th graduating class at Willamette is now heading to college, trade schools, careers, travel and the military.

Bethel Seniors Celebrated With Annual Grad Walk

Fairfield students lined the halls to congratulate visiting seniors from Willamette and Kalapuya on the 3rd annual Bethel Grad Walk.

Willamette and Kalapuya High School seniors visited all of Bethel’s elementary, middle and K-8 schools to celebrate their upcoming graduation.

Wearing their graduation gowns, students were welcomed with cheers, applause and high-fives from younger kids who anticipate their own grad walk.

The graduating seniors had a chance to show their appreciation for the staff in Bethel schools who taught them over the years, with impromptu reunions taking place in school hallways.

The 3rd annual Grad Walk is also intended to inspire the district’s younger students to dream of graduating, with careers or college to follow.

Grandma Genee Honored For Volunteer Work

Grandma Genee Heinz is known by everyone at Malabon, where she’s been a full-time volunteer for a dozen years.

All day, every day, for 12 years. That’s how long “Grandma Genee” Heinz has been a volunteer at Malabon Elementary.

Grandma Genee is the deserving winner of the ACE Award for Volunteers.

Whatever needs to be done, she’s game. Grandma Genee works in the school office, the cafeteria, the classrooms, and never seems to slow down.

She doesn’t have children of her own, but likes to say she has 425 grandchildren and they’re all at Malabon.

Thanks to the generosity of Oregon Community Credit Union, the award comes with $1,000 to be used for the school program of her choice.

Special thanks also to the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce for their continued support of the ACE Awards.

And offer your congratulations to our other volunteer nominees who give freely to help our students and staff: Arlette Sherman and Eduardo Anguiano, Willamette; Bob Mullins, Prairie Mountain.
