Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
The Bethel School District fully supports the ADA and its requirement to make Websites ADA compliant. We are actively working to meet and maintain those requirements.
The 4th annual Bethel Grad Walk welcomed Bethel seniors with applause, high-fives and tears. Willamette and Kalapuya High School seniors visited all 9 of the other Bethel schools to greet former teachers, parade through their old schools, and inspire younger students to keep their eyes on the prize: a Bethel diploma.
It’s all good, clean fun. The 1st annual Dirty Dash is Prairie Mountain’s 6-8 PTO fundraiser. Kids experienced a day they won’t soon forget.
A decades-old tradition continues at Willamette High School.
The top academic achieving students have been recognized for their all-around high marks on the SAT or ACT, their GPA, and for completing all the state essential skills for graduation.
The 32nd annual Willamette Scholars Award was presented to 23 seniors at a special dinner in their honor.
Many of them have accepted full scholarships to college where they will study subjects such as music, engineering, physics, chemistry, agriculture, business, and special education.
Some also have plans to play in their school band, or compete in basketball, volleyball, or soccer.
The Willamette High School Jazz Band 1 has claimed the OMEA State Jazz Championship, compiling the best score of any band in any division in Oregon.
Senior Ryan Helms was selected as the outstanding high school jazz saxophonist for the state.
This is arguably the best overall jazz band in school history, finishing undefeated with wins at the Wildish Jazz Festival, Oregon Jazz Festival, District 12 Jazz Festival, Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival, NW Jazz Festival, and OMEA State Championship.
In addition, 11 Willamette Jazz Band 1 members were selected by audition to perform with the Oregon All-Stars Big Band and New York Trombonist Alan Ferber at the 2019 Oregon Jazz Festival.
Congratulations to the band and teacher Joe Freuen.
