Distance Learning for Middle School Students

Hello Prairie Mountain Middle School families,

We are excited about “seeing” our students on Monday, April 13th!

  • Beginning Monday, middle school and high school students will be attending their classes via Google Classroom, our new virtual learning environment, by going to https://classroom.google.com/
  • Here is a detailed middle school family guidance document with instructions and a week-at-a-glance for middle school students.
  • Students will log in using their school email. The email and passwords are:

PM.lastname.firstname@bethel.k12.or.us  Password: PMS+student ID

  • Once in Google Classroom, they will see all of their classes and will follow their schedule just as if they were at school. They can do these at their own pace, and will have access to their teachers. You will receive regular updates and important information about next steps for supporting students in Google Classroom.

Please watch for detailed guidance for K-5 learning to be released shortly. In the meantime, you can continue your K-5 student’s learning by visiting here.

Beloved Tradition Continues

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. 

Schools Closed Rest Of School Year

Bethel families,

Today we learned our students will not return to school campuses this school year, while plans around graduation requirements for seniors have also been announced.

An executive order from Gov. Kate Brown extended the closure of school buildings through June 12th in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe and healthy. While campuses are closed, education continues. Bethel schools will continue on the same pathway of Distance Learning for All that our staff has been preparing to deliver to all students.

This year has also significantly changed for our seniors. Colt Gill, Director of the Oregon Department of Education, has announced a plan around graduation requirements. Click here for the full ODE plan. We are still digging into the new guidance, and will be reaching out to each of our high school seniors and their families soon with more information. Look for communication soon from Willamette and Kalapuya principals.

The school closure also means that proms, field trips, graduations, award ceremonies, and simple classroom activities will be missed or experienced differently. We plan to include our high school student leaders in collaborative planning efforts to address these experiences, and will share details as plans are developed.

During these unprecedented times, I want to say thank you for the kindness and patience you show to one another. We will need continued patience, resilience, kindness and strength as we move through these next few months.

Please remember that we care deeply about the well-being of each and every Bethel student. There is no road map for the trip we are on, but we will take this ride together.

Chris Parra
Bethel Superintendent

Hoy aprendimos que nuestros estudiantes no regresarán a los campus escolares este año escolar, mientras que también se han anunciado planes en torno a los requisitos de graduación para personas mayores. Continue reading

PTO Cookie Dough Fundraiser Cancelled

The Eagle is sad because there won’t be any cookies.

Prairie Mountain Students and Staff,

Due to school closure, we are canceling our PTO Cookie Dough Fundraiser.  If you and your student collected money from family, friends, neighbors, etc. please work with them to return their money.  For families that have turned in their order envelopes, our office team has or is working to get into contact with you to return the order envelope to you. We are so sorry for the inconvenience, but it has been difficult under the current circumstances to create a safe system to continue collecting orders and distribution.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  We miss you all.

Estudiantes de Prairie Mountain y personal

Debido al cerramiento de las escuelas, vamos a cancelar la recaudación de fondos de PTO Cookie Dough.  Si usted o su estudiante colecto dinero de familia, amigos, vecinos, etc. favor de regresarles su dinero. A las familias que han entregado su sobre con las ordenes, nuestro personal de la oficina les va a contactar para regresarles su sobre. Lamentamos la inconveniencia, pero ha sido muy difícil debido a las circunstancias crear un sistema seguro para recoger pedidos y entregarlos. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en contactarnos. Los extrañamos a todos.

Yearbook Memories Still Available

Dear Prairie Mountain community,

As you know, things are adjusting rapidly due to Covid-19. One thing that is needing to adjust is the production of our school yearbook. We are still moving forward with full completion of the 52 page K-8 yearbook and sticking to the original timeline. We are getting developing updates from Lifetouch regarding printing & distribution. We are adjusting our coverage since events we planned to photograph were cancelled. We are still making a beautiful book with precious photos of your students.

 

We understand this is an uncertain time for many members of our community, and that a $20 yearbook may not be a financial priority right now. We are only ordering books that have been pre-purchased by April 10th on ybpay.com (code 6677720) There will not be extras to purchase so you must, if you’re able, order by 4/10 to secure your copy. In past years, we’ve ordered in bulk and students have been able to buy a copy in person last-minute once the books arrived. We will not be doing that this year. 

 

If you have already purchased a yearbook, you will receive your book this June. Unsure if you’ve purchased one? Check the link below for confirmed orders (as of 3/24 11am)

Yearbook Orders As of 3_24

 

Lastly, we are adding a spread about Covid-19 and are seeking photos or student quotes about the experience of social-distancing, working-from-home, etc. If you have content you would like to submit for the yearbook, please email to brittany.dorris@bethel.k12.or.us 

 

Estimada comunidad de Prairie Mountain,

Como saben, las cosas se están ajustando rápidamente debido a Covid-19. Una cosa que necesita ajustarse es la producción de nuestro anuario escolar. Todavía estamos avanzando con la finalización completa del anuario K-8 de 52 página y siguiendo la línea de tiempo original. Estamos recibiendo actualizaciones de Lifetouch sobre impresión y distribución. Estamos ajustando nuestra cobertura ya que los eventos que planeamos fotografiar fueron cancelados. Todavía estamos haciendo un hermoso libro con fotos preciosas de sus estudiantes.

 

Entendemos que este es un momento incierto para muchos miembros de nuestra comunidad, y que un anuario de $ 20 puede no ser una prioridad financiera en este momento. Solo estamos ordenando libros que hayan sido pre-comprados antes del 10 de abril en ybpay.com (código 6677720) No habrá extras para comprar por lo que debe, si puede, ordene antes del 4/10 para asegurar su copia. En los últimos años, hemos ordenado en grandes cantidades y los estudiantes han podido comprar una copia en persona a última hora una vez que llegaron los libros. No haremos eso este año.

 

Si ya compró un anuario, recibirá su libro este junio. ¿No está seguro si ha comprado uno? Consulte el siguiente enlace para ver los pedidos confirmados (a partir del 3/24 11am)

Yearbook Orders As of 3_24

Por último, estamos agregando una extensión sobre Covid-19 y estamos buscando fotos o frases de estudiantes sobre la experiencia de distanciamiento social, trabajo desde casa, etc. Si tiene contenido que desea enviar para el anuario, envíe un correo electrónico a brittany.dorris@bethel.k12.or.us
