Mama duck and her and ducklings have completed their annual “migration” from our inner courtyard to the wetlands. It is so wonderful to see nature continuing on.
Hello Prairie Mountain Students and Families,
We miss you all so much. You all are the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing I think about before I close my eyes for bed. We (teachers and administrators) have worked hard to create meaningful supplemental learning materials for all Bethel students.
Today our teams worked just as hard stuffing envelopes filled with the 5 days of supplemental instruction for families who stated they needed theirs mailed/delivered. We have put those in the mail, and they will be delivered to homes very soon. Bethel’s Supplemental Resources are found here.
Today we met with our teacher teams and began our conversations around distance learning as directed by the Oregon Department of Education. I promise to send you more information about distance learning and what it will look like for our K-8 students in the next day or so.
Also this week, our teachers will call families to check in on how you are all doing, and asking you some questions about internet service and technology. Our Elementary Teachers will be calling each family to ask about current devices that they have that can be used for distance learning, and they will talk to about internet options and how we can help. For more information about free internet access click here.
Middle School Teachers will also need to confirm your child’s access to the internet for distance learning needs. If you have not already received a phone call from MS teachers, you can complete this short survey to tell us the status of your computer and internet needs. THIS IS ONLY FOR OUR 6-8 FAMILIES ONLY.
We have a limited number of Chromebooks available in the district and will be loaning them to students in need starting at the middle level. Once we confirm with families that there will be a Chromebook reserved in your middle school child’s name, the checkout schedule for identified PM middle school students to pick the Chromebook up is:
Thursday, 4/9, Willamette High School North Parking Lot
7:30am-9:30am Students with last name A-E
9:30am-11:30am Students with last name F-L
12:30pm-2:00pm Students with last name M-R
2:00pm-4:00pm Students with last name S-Z
Please Note: guardians MUST be present to sign the acceptable use policy before their child can get a device.
Remember that we are all in this together. Thank you for being the most amazing community and thank you for all of your love and support through all of this. Give your kids big hugs from all of us here on the Mountain.
