(Bethel Christian school staff)  More than 125 students and staff at Bethel Christian School formed a bucket brigade down the halls of the school to pass 642 pounds of donated food to the Salvation Army last Wednesday. Each grade (pre-school through 8th grade) collected food as part of the school's community service week.

Students lined the halls and patio of the school to pass each donated item into the back of a Salvation Army truck. During the week, BCS students also learned other ways to serve locally by collecting useful items for a community homeless shelter, visiting and singing songs for a neighborhood retirement home, baking desserts for a local church group, and growing flowers for homes that neighbor the school grounds.

"In addition to academic learning, we want to encourage our students to have strong character and that includes thinking of others and acting in ways that serve beyond our own classrooms," said Diane Massey, the school's new principal.

Bethel Christian School is a pre-school through 8th grade school under the new leadership of administrator, Diane Massey. For more information, please call 503-472-6076, email or visit the school at 325 NW Baker Creek Road, McMinnville.
