Bethel Adds Two School Days

Hi, Prairie Mountain Families,

Here’s great news before the school year starts: our district is restoring two days to the end of the school calendar that had been designated as Budget Reduction Days.

The District was able to restore those days next June thanks to slight underspending at the end of the last school year, and slight increases in expected revenue.

This leaves 3 Budget Reduction Days remaining when students will not attend school:

  • October 13 (a Teacher Inservice Day when students wouldn’t attend anyway)
  • November 22 (day before Thanksgiving holiday)
  • June 18

I’ll send you a revised school year calendar in two weeks after it is officially approved by the School Board. If it is approved, the last day of classes will be June 14.  Meanwhile, this news is a real boost for everyone, and the excitement is building for the start of the school year at Prairie Mountain.

Familias de Prairie Mountain,

Aquí hay unas buenas noticias antes del comienzo del año escolar: nuestro distrito está restableciendo dos días al fin del calendario escolar que había sido designados como Días de Reducción del Presupuesto.

El Distrito logró restablecer esos días el próximo mes de junio debido a haber podido gastar un poco menos de lo esperado al final del último año escolar, y ligeros incrementos en los ingresos esperados.

Esto deja 3 Días de Reducción de Presupuesto restantes en los cuales los alumnos no asistirán a clases:

  • 13 de octubre (un Día de Capacitación del Maestro cuando los estudiantes no habrían asistido originalmente)
  • 22 de noviembre (el día antes del Día de la Acción de Gracias)
  • 18 de junio

Le enviaré un calendario revisado del año escolar en dos semanas después de que sea oficialmente aprobado por la Junta Escolar. Si es aprobado, el último dia de clases será 14 de junio.  Mientras tanto, esta información representa buenas noticias para todos y el entusiasmo está creciendo para el comienzo del año escolar en Prairie Mountain.  

 

Selecting The New Science

Bethel’s updating its science curriculum for the coming school year, looking for one that will include new learning expectations.

A District committee has carefully reviewed various textbook options for elementary, middle, and high school science.

Parents and staff members have the opportunity to examine the committee’s final curriculum selections next Monday and Tuesday, April 10 & 11, 3:30-6:00 in room 17 at Shasta Middle School.

Questions? Contact Brian Flick, Bethel’s Director of Teaching and Learning, or Amy Tidwell, Bethel’s Director of Special Services.

Selección de la nueva ciencia

Bethel está actualizando su plan de estudios de ciencias para el próximo año escolar, buscando uno que incluya nuevas expectativas de aprendizaje. Un comité del distrito ha revisado cuidadosamente varias opciones de libros de texto para la ciencia de la escuela primaria, media y secundaria.

Los padres y miembros del personal tienen la oportunidad de examinar las selecciones finales del comité el próximo lunes y martes, 10 y 11 de abril, 3:30-6:00 en la sala 17 en la Escuela Secundaria Shasta.

¿Preguntas? Contacte a Brian Flick, el Director de Enseñanza y Aprendizaje de Bethel o Amy Tidwell, Directora de Servicios Especiales.

Student Safety Alert

Student Safety Alert

We are sharing the following information at the recommendation of Eugene Police.

Around 12:30, Tuesday April 4th, a man in a white SUV allegedly tried to kidnap a young woman who was on foot near Everyone’s Market on Echo Hollow Road.

The young woman – who is not a student – managed to escape and is safe and unharmed, but police want everyone to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for a white GMC Yukon with tinted windows.

Again, no one was harmed, but students are asked to be especially aware of their surroundings

Alerta de Seguridad del Estudiante

Estamos compartiendo la siguiente información por recomendación de la Policía de Eugene.

A eso de las 12:30, martes, 4 de abril, un hombre en un SUV blanco supuestamente trató de secuestrar a una joven que estaba a pie cerca de Everyone’s Market en la calle Echo Hollow.

La joven, que no es estudiante, logró escapar y está segura e ilesa, pero la policía quiere que todos sepan de lo que les rodea y mantengan un ojo atento a un GMC Yukon blanco con cristales tintados.

Repetimos que nadie fue perjudicado, pero se pide a los estudiantes que sean especialmente conscientes de sus alrededores.

We had so much fun last week enjoying the Talent Show on Tuesday and Bingo Night on Thursday!  We greatly appreciate all the help of our staff volunteers who put together the Talent Show and to all the students who participated in presenting their talent that evening.  You were brilliant!

Thank you as well to our staff volunteers and parent volunteers as well as our 8th grade students who helped in numerous ways at our Bingo Night.   Our school community raised funds for the end-of-year 8th grade Celebration and 8th grade Trip.  Thank you! 

Our PTO is conducting a fundraiser in March for overall school programs K-8 and are seeking to identify one Classroom Champion in each homeroom who can help distribute information and organize orders from students.  Please contact Shanna Bitikofer at Shanbit@comcast.net or PTO President Jennifer Hartley, at Jennifer.Hartley72@gmail.com or visit their website to find out more about how you can participate.   https://www.facebook.com/events/103206376873214/
