We’re excited to invite 7th and 8th grade families to our Shasta On the Path to High School Graduation Night on Tuesday, January 29, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at Shasta Middle School. Plan to join us for this important event focused on student success and planning for the future. Willamette High School administrators and Shasta staff will help students learn about how to stay on track through middle school and the opportunities available in high school that will prepare them for graduation and beyond. Snacks, childcare, and Spanish/English interpretation will be provided.
As you may already know there was a police officer-involved shooting outside of Cascade Middle School this morning. We are all relieved that there were no students or staff involved and all of them are safe.
By all accounts, the staff and students at Cascade responded quickly and correctly to the Lockdown. This is why we practice our ALICE safety procedures on Lockdowns, Lockouts, and communication.
Although this tragic incident occurred at another Bethel school, some children at Shasta may be emotionally impacted by this news. Please let us know if you believe they may need counseling support at school on Monday.
Children can be reassured that serious incidents like this at schools are very rare. We emphasize safety and regularly remind children that they must follow a teacher’s directions in an emergency situation.
We send all our thoughts to the students and staff at Cascade, who had a difficult day. And we reaffirm our conviction to keep our school as safe as it can be.
As always, contact me with any questions or concerns.
Brady Cottle, Principal

We would like to say THANK YOU to all those who supported our Shasta Shines Winter Service Project. Students raised almost $5000 by sending out donation request letters to local businesses and through various fundraisers. On Friday, December 21st, Shasta students headed to area Walmart’s to purchase items for children in our community and for the women currently seeking shelter at Station 7. This has been a tradition at Shasta for over 20 years and is such a wonderful way to finish out the year.
Just a friendly reminder, Winter Break is December 24th through January 4th (No School) with students returning to school on January 7, 2019.
As Winter Break begins, we would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday and a wonderful New Year!
