Prairie Mountain Welcomes Ashton Eaton

Ashton Eaton encourages everyone to get moving!

Ashton Eaton encourages everyone to get moving!

It was lights, camera and plenty of action at Prairie Mountain today! Ashton Eaton and Nike teamed up with a group of our fifth grade students to create a Public Service Announcement for the Lets move/Active Schools website.

The video featured a group of fifth grade students playing on our playground; narrated by Ashton Eaton. Clips of Ashton participating in sports as a child will be edited in.

Prairie Mountain students and staff were honored to be a part of the movement to encourage children across our nation to get moving and have fun! Perhaps Ashton inspired a Prairie Mountain Eagle to go for the World Record today.

Thank you, Westside Faith Center

Volunteers prepare new curriculum for students.

Volunteers prepare new curriculum for students.

Our school received a makeover on the outside of our building, and much needed help on the inside of our building through the good people of Westside Faith Center and Project Hope.

You likely noticed the fresh bark in our flowerbeds and around our school; but you could not notice the hours they volunteered assisting with processing our new curriculum.

We are very grateful to Westside Faith Center and their many helping hands. Thank you!

Make Sure You are Cleared to Volunteer

Background checks may be completed online!

Background checks may be completed online!

Volunteers are truly the heart of our school community. We rely on volunteers for so many activities including classroom help, fun school events, and chaperoning field trips. All volunteers at Prairie Mountain are required to undergo an Oregon criminal records check; which you can easily complete online.

Here are some helpful facts to know about completing a background check:

  • Please allow two full weeks processing time.
  • Background checks for Parents of students in grades K-5 are valid for 5 years.
  • Background checks for parents of students in grades 6-8 are valid for 3 years. If your student just entered middle school or you are new to Prairie Mountain, you must complete a new background check
  • Approved background checks are school specific. If family enrolls at a different Bethel school, a new background check must be approved.

Not sure if you need to renew or complete a background check? The office is happy to help you.

Prairie Mountain is a Title I School

Proud to be a Title I School

Proud to be a Title I School

Prairie Mountain’s status as a Title I school entitles all of our students to academic support and instruction designed to build proficiency in core academic subjects. Title I funds may be used to support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, as well as summer programs that reinforce and help retain skills taught during the regular school year. In the Bethel School District, Title I funds are used primarily to support reading instruction.

Prairie Mountain obtained school-wide Title I status in 2010 through an extensive process of documentation and demonstration of eligibility. Once all criteria have been met, the US Department of Education provides Title I funds based on the number of children from low-income families in each district,

Title I is a federally funded grant that serves millions of students nationwide. Title I is currently one component of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Title I schools are required to employ highly qualified teachers in core academic subjects. These schools also invite parent input and participation in their child’s education.

If you would like to know more about Prairie Mountain’s Title I program, Please contact Principal Jennifer Haliski or Reading Specialist Jessica Surles.
