Student Enrichment Resources

Hi again, Willamette Families,

We hope this message finds you well. We miss your child’s presence in school and we look forward to when we will all be back together.

This week was scheduled to be Spring Break before we had this interruption to the school calendar. We want you to know we are still attempting to get a clearer picture of what to expect for the next several months.

The Oregon Department of Education is currently working on a plan to address the unique needs of high school students during this closure. We know that high school students and their families are concerned about credits, as well as various tests such as SAT, IB and AP. We will communicate details once guidance from ODE is provided, and we expect that will be soon. Thanks for your continued patience.

Our Bethel staff have been working to plan materials and activities for students in all grade levels. We intend to offer continued supplemental enrichment for your child while schools are closed.

Supplemental Materials: Materials will be available to you on April 6th in two formats: online and hard-copy paper packets. These will be made available each week throughout the closure. We are working hard to ensure that all supplemental materials are accessible to all of our students. 

Enrichment: In the meantime, we have vetted and collected resources to support the enrichment of your student. Click here to access these enrichment resources.

Check-In: Your child’s teachers will be contacting you after Spring Break to share more information about the supplemental materials, and simply because they miss their students! 

These are unprecedented times which result in many questions. We will share more information with you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you.

Sincerely,
Your Willamette Team

Hola Familias,

Esperamos que este mensaje le encuentre bien. Extrañamos la presencia de sus hijos en la escuela y esperamos con ansias cuando volveremos a estar juntos.

Esta semana estaba programada para las vacaciones de primavera, cuando teníamos un calendario escolar oficial. Todavía estamos intentando tener una idea más clara de qué esperar para los próximos meses.

El Departamento de Educación de Oregón Continue reading

Hello from Willamette

Dear Willamette Families,

We hope this message finds you all healthy and hopeful while navigating difficult circumstances during this unprecedented period. We have taken the first few steps in supporting our community through serving meals (over 800 today) and providing health care. Additionally, we have been identifying how best to support engagement and learning during this campus closure. We understand how the impact of this virus creates temporary hardships around childcare and access to services, and we are working on the best solutions available given the state and national guidance to avoid the spread of Covid-19. With the update of April 28th being the earliest return to campus, we will continue to offer community resources around food, physical and mental health, and soon, academic engagement resources. 

Following Spring Break, multiple teams of teachers and staff will be engaged in even more robust creation of supplemental education and learning supports, in collaboration with surrounding school districts and the Oregon Department of Education. We want to ensure access and quality to all of our students, and more detailed information will be forthcoming as these plans solidify. 

We hope all of our students and families are practicing healthy habits and enjoying the extra time together. We look forward to having everyone back together as a Wolverine family, and wish you the best in the meantime. 

Sincerely,

Your Willamette Team
