Happy 2017 to all! It has been an unusual start to the New Year given the interesting weather, and we are excited to have students and families back in the building.
I’d like to recognize our Prairie Mountain Band students and their director Casey Crane for their wonderful performance in the Winter Concert in December. Thank you for sharing your music with us!
And, we’d like to acknowledge the vital work of our Prairie Mountain custodial staff and our Bethel facilities and maintenance personnel who devoted hours in December and January to addressing weather-related issues around our building and school grounds. Special thanks also goes to our head secretary Krista Larson who helped tremendously on inclement weather days in our front office. Thanks for all you do to help our school!
As you may imagine, our January calendar is changing quite a bit. We will be working quickly to get updated information out to families, so please stay tuned.
Thursday, Jan. 19: On the Path to Graduation Night: We invite all our 7th and 8th grade students and families to attend this important evening from 7:00pm-8:00pm in our Caforium as we talk with students about preparing for success in the coming years. Willamette High School administrators will join us to talk about high school preparation and graduation. Snacks, childcare, and Spanish/English interpretation will be available. Please do plan to attend as we look ahead at the important years ahead.
