Bethel Middle School

Dedicated To Excellence In Education

Principal's Message

  • Bulldogs, 


    Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! 

    Our school mission is to prepare students, academically and socially, for career, college, and beyond. Bethel Middle staff is committed to providing excellent and caring education and services to our students. 

    We are excited to have students return to campus in September and experience more of the awesome Bulldog community that we offer. Students should come to school prepared to work hard, show respect to teachers and classmates, and to develop lifelong friendships that will sustain them as they progress through young adulthood.

    We have a great year planned with fun concerts, ASB-sponsored dances, sporting events, and plenty of social time. Middle School is a time for intense social development, and we support that through organized social events and social-emotional development lessons in the advisory classes.  We are proud of the growth and maturity that we see in students between 6th and 8th grade. 

    We are committed to excellent education and support our students and teachers in standards-based learning and teaching. All students are taught standards-based curriculum and teachers utilize research based practices to support their learning. We know the rigor that parents and students expect for their academic classes, and we support this through teach-led lessons and also inquiry projects. This year we will continue to use the Springboard curriculum for ELA, Document Based Questioning for Social Studies, Open Up resources for Math, and Amplify for Science. 

    We look forward to serving your student! Please make sure your email is accurate on ParentVue. We sent out weekly emails to all families on Sundays.

    Go Bulldogs!

    Student transfer requests for the 2023-24 school year may be completed and submitted online from the district’s website beginning on January 4, 2023. All transfer requests will be done electronically. 


    First consideration deadline for accepting student transfer requests for the 2023-24 school year will be March 10, 2023 for all grades, K through 12. Requests received after the deadline may not be considered until the week of August 21. Requests submitted after August 21 will be reviewed after September 15 when actual enrollment counts are in. 


    If the request is submitted by March 10, parents will be notified by April 15 if the request has been approved or denied. Approval or denial of transfer requests will be based on established criteria outlined in School Board policies and procedures 3131 and 3141. Parents will provide transportation for students who voluntarily attend a school outside their attendance area. For more information, call Mary Ann Mulloy-White at 253-800-2012 for secondary or Rayna Messer at 253-800-2014 for elementary.


    Students who are currently approved for in-district student transfers do not have to complete a new form unless they are changing from elementary to middle school or middle school to high school.
