Oregon State Assessment Tests

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)

PTO is Ready to Rock!

I would like to thank everyone who attended our first PTO meeting of the year last night.  We had over 30 people attend!  This is a true testament of our families’ commitment to our students, staff, and school community.  I was so pleased to see familiar faces and to meet new Prairie Mountain families.  During our meeting, we talked about PM’s PTO mission, PM PTO Projects, Project Leader guideline, and PTO meeting structures.The slides below are the slides shown and discussed last night.  If you weren’t able to make it, no worries!  We always make sure to post PTO meeting slides that were discussed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, and thank you again for your support.
