Every Monday and Thursday after school, Prairie Mountain teachers provide a quiet academic workplace in our middle school computer lab. During Eagle Studies, students may complete their homework, get help on course material and retake tests.
You will be receiving report cards before you know it; let’s work together to help your student achieve their best. We will even provide an after school snack for your student!
It’s easy to sign up, just review and complete the contract below, and send it back to school with your student.
The 2019 Prairie Mountain Jog-a-thon is right around the corner and the hallways are buzzing with excitement! Our amazing PM K-5 Jog-a-thon will be held this Friday, September 27th from 12:30-1:30 (Jog-a-thon running schedule was sent in Tuesday folders).
In order to raise as much money as we can to support our PTO and the Prairie Mountain School community, the Prairie Mountain PTO now has an online fundraising option for families. Families can now go to 99pledges and submit online donations for a student. Just follow this link, type in your student’s First and Middle name, and Last initial, put in your donation, submit payment, and viola’, it’s that easy! However if one doesn’t not want to pay online, students will continue to have the option to collect pledges and donations with the Jog-a-thon envelopes that we have used in the past. These envelopes were sent home in Tuesday folders on 9/17/19.
Last year our K-5 students raised $5330.46! Our goal this year is to raise at least $6500, and we know that we can do anything when we all work together!
Early this morning I checked our 99Pledges website and it looks as if we have raised $2,100! Wow! Nice job EAGLES! Let’s keep this up. I know that we can make our goal of $6500 by our deadline of October 3, 2019.
We want all students to have access to engaging learning and experiences during their time on the Mountain. Your donations and pledges will help in supporting our staff and all students. Thank you for your support!
Information About State Tests
Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Click here for more information. (PDF)
