Willamette High School
December 11 is Financial Aid Night for Seniors. Attendance is important for all seniors. This is where you will learn about grant and scholarship info.
Who: ALL seniors
What: Financial Aid Night
Date: Thursday, December 11
Time: 6:30-7:30 pm
Where: Powers Auditorium
Every year we have returning seniors who tell us they changed their mind and they want to go to school (community college, trade school, college) but they don’t have funding because they didn’t apply for financial aid. Don’t let this happen to you!
The names are always kept confidential, but more than half of Bethel students receive free school lunches. Your child may qualify for free lunches at school.
The Bethel lunch program is recognized for using fresh, locally grown, nutritious, and tasty food. We strongly encourage you to turn in a completed form to the school office to see if you qualify for this benefit which we are happy to provide. Breakfast is free for all students.
Parents and students,
The best thing you can do to prepare for the PSAT tomorrow is to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and arrive a little early tomorrow to take the test. Students need to be in their assigned room for the PSAT. Room assignments are posted in many locations around the school.
Remember to bring: a calculator (you cannot use your cell phone as a calculator) and two #2 pencils
Don’t bring: cell phone/electronics, mechanical pencils, food/drink, books and homework
For students not taking the PSAT, you will have a regular “B” schedule of classes for the day.
The protection and safe-keeping of all students is our #1 priority. That is why all Willamette staff will take part in school safety training on October 10th, a no-school day for educator training.
This workshop will make sure our staff members have a shared understanding of how to respond in emergency situations, especially a worst-case scenario of an armed intruder on campus. It is sad that there is a need to adequately prepare our staff for such a remote possibility, but we believe it is better to train for a worst-case scenario and never use that training than to sit back and just hope a life-threatening event never happens.
Every school in our district already practices fire drills, lockdowns, and earthquake drills. This training will add to our staff’s abilities to respond in extreme emergencies in order to keep students safe. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-689-0731 if you have any questions.
