Special Thanks To Bethel Educators

Teacher Appreciation Week recognizes the encouragement, inspiration, knowledge and devotion Bethel educators provide every week.

Teacher Appreciation Week is officially being recognized this week, but Bethel’s educators deserve our appreciation every day.

This is an opportunity to recognize the crucial role our educators play in the lives of our children on a daily basis.

We honor the care and love our educators show for their students, their dedication to being the best in the profession, and their commitment to providing a top-quality education day in and day out.

Bethel is fortunate to have a family of incredibly passionate, creative and dedicated educators. Thank a teacher today!

Little Women Prepared For Big Show

After months of rehearsal, the Willamette production of Little Women will take the stage for three performances this week.

The early reviews are in: “It will make your heart soar!” “Terrific music, fun stories, and impressive performers.” “Run, don’t walk, to Willamette’s musical.”

The curtains open Thursday for the three-day run of Little Women on the Willamette High School stage.

More than 40 students have spent an incredible number of hours rehearsing for the musical based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel.

The Civil War story of love and family will make you laugh – and maybe cry – and will certainly lift your spirits.

You will be impressed with the performance by Willamette students Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, 7:00 in Powers Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 with tickets available at the door: $5 students/Bethel staff, and $7 general admission.
