There’s lots of news!
Please stay updated through the Bethel Website to know the latest regarding our schools and the Coronavirus. I am cleaning the desks, tables, and doorknobs daily. We are emphasizing hand washing. Thank you for keeping sick kids home. I know many of you have been very careful in light of the current situation. Because of recent developments, many events at school have been cancelled or will be rescheduled. The Book Fair next week is cancelled, as is Literacy Night. Our field trip to the Eugene Symphony will be rescheduled.
Iditaread! The race is on…we have a small contingent of students faithfully turning in their reading tickets. Thank you! We can use some help…it’s good for everyone to commit to signing off on 20 minutes a night of reading. This is one thing that is a certain indicator of success in school! The pink packets were sent home on Monday.
Fourth grade families, thank you also for the generous donations of Hershey bars for our fractions lessons. We have had two candy lessons about fractions, and will have one or two more because of all the donations! It’s been fun to include some tasty treats with our learning.
SNACKS. Kids really need a mid-morning snack. Because just a few families have been donating, I am asking that all kids who would like a snack to bring their own snack each day. Please send fruit, veggies, crackers, granola, or healthy cereal. If you would like to continue donating, it is much appreciated.
