Event Description

The Bethel Special Education Department would like to invite you to our first annual Refresh Gathering!


We see you, special educators. The challenges you’ve faced in the past 15 months are beyond comparison. Through a pandemic and so much political unrest - you've worked so hard for our students with unique needs and developmental and cognitive disabilities. We see you, and we want to honor you.

Our Special Education team at Bethel has designed this event for all of our partners and friends in the field of special edcuation. We want to give you a safe and welcoming space to REFRESH and enjoy a time of community, laughter and learning.

Among other things, you can expect:

  • Live musicians and artists
  • Door prizes
  • Interactive professional development sessions
  • Networking opportunites
  • and more!

We hope that you will join us. After the year you’ve had, you deserve it!


Registration is open to all alumni, current students, faculty, colleagues and friends who are currently in or are pursuing special education-related positions. We are also encouraging you to bring a friend or colleague who would appreciate this gathering and who may be interested in learning more about Bethel.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to preserve the unique and uplifting atmosphere desired for this event, there will not be a virtual option provided. We hope that you will consider joining in person us as we continue to practice social distancing.


Please contact or 651-638-6250 with any questions.
