Freezing temperatures overnight and treacherous morning driving conditions have forced the closure of all Bethel schools again on Thursday, February 28th.

All school-related evening activities are cancelled.

The City of Eugene’s ice/snow emergency remains in effect. Residents are encouraged to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.

Sources Of Strength Is Coming

Prairie Mountain is excited to launch Sources of Strength. All Bethel high schools and middle schools are implementing this important program in their school communities this spring.

Sources of Strength is a widely-used program that encourages open discussion about the very real problems that concern our children, with a focus on the sources of strength that are often helpful for those problems.

It also lets students experience different ways of coping with important problems like bullying, substance abuse, and suicide.

We will be training students as peer-leaders to help us begin the program in our school, but Sources of Strength will be led by a certified trainer and adult leaders from Cascade School.

Watch for more news about Sources of Strength as we introduce it in our school and across Bethel School District this spring.
