Drop, Cover and Hold On

First Grade students practice earthquake safety.

First Grade students practice earthquake safety.

Prairie Mountain joined millions of others across the globe during an annual earthquake drill that took place 10/16 at 10:16.

Students were prompted to drop, cover and hold on for a few moments to prepare them to seek safe refuge during an earthquake.

First grade students in Mrs. Bryant’s class were experts at remaining calm, quiet and covered up throughout the drill. Way to go, class!

Science Brings Rewards

Our Future Scientist

Our Future Scientist

Prairie Mountain is very proud to announce we have a National Winner in our midst! Zack won an iPad Air for his participation in the Thermo Fisher Innovation Nation essay contest.  Zack is currently an eighth grade student, but entered the contest last spring as a 7th grade student.  His essay was selected as a “runner up” among all participating 7th graders across the USA.  Zack described the impact he hoped to make on the world should he choose to  become a scientist someday.

Congratulations, Zack! We are proud of you.

School Safety Training

Keeping our students safe

Keeping our students safe

The protection and safe-keeping of all students is our #1 priority. That is why all Bethel School District staff will take part in school safety training on October 10th, a no-school day for educator training.

This workshop will make sure our staff members have a shared understanding of how to respond in emergency situations, especially a worst-case scenario of an armed intruder on campus. It is sad that there is a need to adequately prepare our staff for such a remote possibility, but we believe it is better to train for a worst-case scenario and never use that training than to sit back and just hope a life-threatening event never happens.

Every school in our district already practices fire drills, lockdowns, and earthquake drills. This training will add to our staff’s abilities to respond in extreme emergencies in order to keep students safe. Contact me (jennifer.haliski@bethel.k12.or.us) if you have any questions.
