award winner

Bethel’s Nicole Butler 2021 Oregon Teacher of the Year

Congratulations go out to Irving 2nd grade teacher Nicole Butler-Hooton, Oregon’s 2021 Teacher of the Year.

Nicole was surprised in a staff Zoom meeting Tuesday, with Governor Kate Brown and Oregon Department of Education Director Colt Gill making an appearance to announce the award.

Nicole is being recognized for what our Danebo staff value: a close connection with students, families and the school community while centering equity and cultural competency in teaching.

Nicole receives a $5,000 cash award and will represent Oregon for consideration as National Teacher of the Year. Irving also receives a matching $5,000 award.

Hooray for Nicole! She is an excellent representative of Bethel educators and is very deserving of this honor. She is the first Bethel educator to receive this award, but not the first who is deserving of the recognition.

Supply Pick-Up Reminder

We still have a large handful of student supply packets that need to be picked up by families. Packets include basic supplies (markers, crayons, colored pencils, scissors, glue sticks, pencils, white board/marker) as well as Ready Common Core math books. Some classroom teachers also included classroom-specific supplies that students will need as they work from home.

Please call the school office (541-688-8735) to arrange a time to pick up your child’s supplies or if you need assistance getting your child’s supplies.
