Assistance League Food Pantry at Danebo on Thursdays

Every Thursday, families can stop by the Danebo Cafeteria between 2:30 and 3:15 to pick up food staples. Items like cereal, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables are brought in each week (thanks to a partnership that the Assistance League has with Fred Meyer stores) for families to pick up and take home.

The AL Food Pantry is open to all Danebo families at no cost. We do ask that you bring your own reusable bag (but if you forget, we can help you out).

If you stop in the Food Pantry, be sure to say thanks to the Assistance League Volunteers. Without them, this amazing opportunity for our families would not exist.

Trimming the Ivy

Thank you to Mr. Peck and students in Mr. Smith’s class for their work last week on the ivy around our school.

Mr. Peck noticed that it was “getting out of hand” and spent time before and after school trimming the ivy bushes. On Friday afternoon, students from Mr. Smith’s class cleaned up the ivy trimmings, making our courtyard and entrances look so much better!

Thanks to the students and staff for their teamwork!

Breakfast Changes for this Year

Changes in Danebo’s breakfast service started Wednesday, September 11th.  

  • What it was:  Chocolate Milk was available
  • What it will be:  We will only be offering white milk for breakfast.  Chocolate milk will still be available for lunch.

One of the reasons why for this change is to try to reduce the sugar intake in the mornings as well as a small budgetary savings.

  • What it was:  Bagels and cream cheese was available every day.
  • What it will be:  Bagels and cream cheese will be available every other Monday. 
  • What it was: Cereal was only available on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays.
  • What it is:  Cereal is available every day.  Also Cereal will be served with Graham Crackers to meet the grain requirements.  This change was implemented on the first day of school.

If you have questions regarding the changes mentioned above, please contact our Nutrition Services Director, Mike Vetter (mike.vetter@bethel.k12.or.us)

Information About State Tests

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Click here for more information. (PDF)

Información sobre pruebas estatales

Cada primavera, los estudiantes de Oregon en los grados 3-8 y 11 participan en evaluaciones estatales en artes del lenguaje inglés y matemáticas.
