Principal's Message


    Bulldog Families.


    This is a short week for students. We hope that you have a joyful Thanksgiving break. We have 6 full days of school before the end of the trimester. Please talk to your student about grades and make sure any I’s are corrected before December 1st.


    Strategic Plan Community Input -- We want your feedback on the strategic plan. A team of parents, community members, teachers, and administrators have met 4 times to develop a vision and plan for the next 5 years in Bethel School District. Please join us at the community forums:
    November 28 -- Bethel High School  Student Performances at 5:30; Meeting at 6:00

    November 29 -- Spanaway Lake High School Student Performances 5:30; Meeting at 6:00

    November 30 -- Graham Kapowsin High School Student Performances 5:00; Meeting at 5:30


    Levy and Bond: The Bethel School District School Board voted to place two levies (Tech and Learning) and a bond for new construction on the February Ballot. The Tech levy and the Learning levy are renewals of current levies that fund on-going programs that enrich student learning and school programs such as our 1:1 ipad initiative, art programs, and sports programs. The Bond proposal is to build new and modernize aging buildings within the Bethel School District, including Bethel High School where most of our students move on to. More information will be coming out to parents about what these cover, and how you can get involved and learn more. For more information, please check out https://www.bethelsd.org/bond
