State Testing Information

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)

Barger Reconstruction Warning

Anyone who has driven on Barger Drive recently is aware of the significant road construction and delays while driving through that area. The work will continue through the first few weeks of school.

  • Anticipate long delays; leave early; pack plenty of patience; stay safe
  • Please encourage your child to walk or bike to school. The sidewalks should be completely refurbished and open by the first day of school.
  • Choose alternative routes, especially for those heading to Willamette High School. The construction at Barger and Echo Hollow is big and you should expect traffic and delays to be substantial.

Here is the good news. The finished roadway will include:

  • Upgraded sidewalk access ramps
  • Traffic signal improvements
  • New median islands with trees and landscaping
  • The addition of stormwater treatment facilities
  • Lane reconfigurations near the Cubit/Echo Hollow intersection, which is annually among the most accident-prone in the city.
  • A Barger bike lane near Cubit that is separated and protected from traffic

  • Anticipar largas demoras; irse temprano; empaca mucha paciencia; mantenerse a salvo
  • Por favor anime a su hijo a caminar o andar en bicicleta a la escuela. Las aceras deben estar completamente renovadas y abiertas el primer día de clases.
  • Elija rutas alternativas, especialmente para aquellos que se dirigen a Willamette High School. La construcción en Barger y Echo Hollow es grande y se debe esperar que el tráfico y las demoras sean considerables

Aquí están las buenas noticias. la calle terminada incluirá:

  • Rampas de acceso a la acera mejoradas
  • Mejoras en la señal de tráfico.
  • Nuevas islas medianas con árboles y jardines.
  • La incorporación de instalaciones de tratamiento de aguas pluviales.
  • Reconfiguraciones de carriles cerca de la intersección Cubit/Echo Hollow, que se encuentra anualmente entre las más propensas a accidentes en la ciudad.
  • Un carril para bicicletas Barger cerca de Cubit que está separado y protegido del tráfico.

Joy Church Makes Shasta Shine

Once again, Joy Church of Eugene makes a difference at Shasta by coming to our school and giving our campus a makeover. Over 60 volunteers spent over 5 hours of their time to update two benches, trim trees, pull weeds, paint doors and spread Bark-O-Mulch, helping make Shasta look amazing!
We appreciate their involvement with our school. We cannot thank them enough for their time and resources, which mean so much to our school, staff and students! Shasta is fortunate to have community members like Joy Church of Eugene step up and make a difference.
