We are in our 2nd week of our Mixed Bag Fundraiser and would like to remind everyone that all orders and money are due this Friday, March 22nd. Please have your student return all orders and money into their homeroom teacher before the end of this week. The top earning class receives a Pizza Party. All funds raised will be used to purchasing additional technology for our classrooms. We would like to say “Thank You” in advance for supporting our PTO fundraiser.
Thanks for your patience while it was determined how we could make up the school days lost to the snow. We will be restoring three days to the calendar in June.
- The last day for students was supposed to be Thursday, June 13, a half day. Now students’ last day will be Tuesday, June 18th and it will also be a half day.
- FYI, Willamette’s graduation will remain June 7th
We at Shasta Middle School still need to meet to determine what – if any – adjustments need to be made to our end-of-the-year activities, such as 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony and field trip. I will let you know as soon as those decisions are finalized.
The three additional school days may conflict with summer vacation plans. In some cases that is unavoidable. But, it is important to provide as much learning time as we can for our students, so we want as many children in school as possible.
Finally, the plan for additional days isn’t yet official. It will go to the School Board for final approval on April 8th, but we do not anticipate any changes by the Board.

Bethel Accepting Transfer Applications
Bethel School District is now accepting Transfer requests for the coming school year.
Click here to submit a Transfer request. http://www.bethel.k12.or.us/enrollment/
Transfer applications will be accepted through March 31, and must be renewed every year.
- Students who were admitted to their current school through the Open Enrollment process that was used the last several years are permanent and no further action is needed.
- Students who transferred after this school year started – and all future transfers – will need to submit a transfer request.
Beginning this fall, transfers will be necessary for students seeking to attend a school other than their “neighborhood school” or for new out-of-district students to enroll in Bethel on a space-available basis.
Families will be notified in early April about whether their transfer requests for the coming school year have been approved.
Bethel aceptando solicitudes de transferencia
El Distrito Escolar de Bethel está aceptando solicitudes de transferencia para el próximo año escolar.
Haga clic aquí para enviar una solicitud de transferencia. http://www.bethel.k12.or.us/enrollment/
Las solicitudes de transferencia se aceptarán hasta el 31 de marzo y deben renovarse cada año.
- Los estudiantes que fueron admitidos en su escuela actual a través del proceso de inscripción abierta que se utilizó en los últimos años son permanentes y no necesitan hacer nada.
- Los estudiantes que se transfirieron después de que comenzó este año escolar, y todas las transferencias futuras, deberán enviar una solicitud de transferencia.
A partir de este otoño, las transferencias serán necesarias para que los estudiantes asistan a una escuela que no sea su “escuela del vecindario” o para que los nuevos estudiantes de fuera del distrito se inscriban en Bethel en función del espacio disponible.
A las familias se les notificará a principios de abril sobre si sus solicitudes de transferencia para el próximo año escolar han sido aprobadas.
Every Bethel school is open and starting on time today, Friday, March 1st.
Buses are on their normal schedules and school dismissal will be at its regular time.
Our parking lot is still very wet with large piles of snow, so drivers are asked to please exercise caution and bring extra patience.
Todas las escuelas de Bethel están abiertas y comienzan a tiempo hoy, viernes 1 de marzo.
Los autobuses están en sus horarios normales y la salida de la escuela estará en su horario habitual.
Nuestro estacionamiento todavía está muy mojado con grandes montones de nieve, por lo que se les pide a los conductores que tengan cuidado y traigan paciencia extra.
