Open Enrollment allows current transfers to become permanent members of their schools, rather than having to seek a transfer each year.

It also allows of out-of-district students to enroll in Bethel on a space-available basis.

The Bethel School Board confirmed that for the coming school year the District could accept 239 out-of-district students at the K-5 level, 116 students at the middle school level, and 70 freshman, sophomore and junior students at Willamette High School.

Each Bethel school has some grade levels that are full and closed to additional students for the 2018-19 school year.

Families will be notified in early April about whether their Open Enrollment transfer requests have been approved.

OBOB’s Back

Final school-level battles are taking place as Bethel students square off in the Oregon Battle of the Books.

OBOB – the quick-recall competition featuring teams of four – quizzes students on questions pulled from 16 designated books.

Each school sends its top team to the state regional competition, and those school battles are wrapping up now.

Bethel will host the middle level regional tournament for the 6th consecutive year. 33 middle school teams from throughout Lane County will gather at Willamette High School on March 11th.

North Eugene High School hosts the elementary tournament. The top three elementary teams and top two middle school teams at regionals advance to the state finals in Salem in April.

Students Receive Kits For Dental Health

Oregon has one of the highest rates of childhood dental disease in the country. That’s why United Way of Lane County and Burley Bicycles are teaming up provide children in Lane County with a dental kit that includes a toothbrush and toothpaste, floss, and a timer.

All Bethel students from Kindergarten through 6th grade are receiving the dental kits.

We caught up with the Kindergarten and 1st grade students in Kelly Ciaverelli’s class at Clear Lake as they received their dental kits.

All Together Now

Prairie Mountain band teacher Casey Crane conducts his students during the school’s individual performance at the Bethel Band Festival. The annual event brought together 350 Bethel musicians, culminating in a combined band performance.

350 Bethel middle and high school musicians gathered at Shasta Middle School for the annual Bethel Band Festival.

It’s always a chance for students to hear how their Bethel peers are progressing, make new friends, and listen to how they could be playing at the high school level.

In addition, students are taught by guest conductor Scott McKee, the Managing Director of the Western International Band Clinic.

The festival allows each school band to play individually before all 350 students play in a powerful combined band performance.

Bethel School District provides music instruction at every level, from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
