Shasta’s Session Choir came in 1st place at the Clackamas Vocal Jazz Festival on Thursday,
March 12th. Session traveled to Clackamas Community College in Oregon City to compete against middle and junior high school students from the Northwest Region, one coming as far as Idaho. Our very own Madi A. came home with a solo award for her scat improvisation and Kaiya N. and Jazz O. also received solo awards for their performances; all three girls are 8th graders. This was a great learning opportunity for our students as they were critiqued by some very highly regarded clinicians. Session represented Shasta with style and class. We are very proud of them!
Please join us this Wednesday for our March PTO meeting. We have some exciting events coming up and could really use your help. Click here to see what we will be discussing. We hope to see you there!
School Year Extended Another Day
All Bethel schools will add one more day to the end of this school year. It’s part of a continuing effort to restore school days that were cut due to budget reductions.
The last day of school will be Thursday, June 11th. It means the day before Thanksgiving was the only budget reduction day this school year.
The District has been able to maintain a healthy reserve fund to use on another school day. The Bethel School Board also plans to hire more staff next fall to further reduce class size, fulfilling part of an agreement the District and teachers signed when all employees collectively made sacrifices during the heart of the recession.
All eyes now turn to the state legislature where school funding for the coming school year is still being determined. Along with restoring school days and adding back staff, Bethel plans to begin full-day Kindergarten in September which makes adequate funding from the state all the more important.
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Check out the attached flyer (English & Spanish) for ideas on how to start your day off right, with foods to boost your brain power and give you more energy.
