Last Day of School

Tuesday, June 20th is the last day of school for students at Danebo (and all Bethel students in grades K-8). It is a FULL day of school, with dismissal at 2:45. We will have breakfast and lunch (free for all students) as usual on the last day of school.

Field Day on the Last Day of School

Some of our amazing Danebo Staff members have planned a sure to be fun-filled field day for students. Students will rotate among 7 activity stations with their classes. We will be outside from 12:45 to 2:00, so please be aware that students may need sunscreen during this time. While we are unable to provide sunscreen for students, they are able to bring their own sunscreen and staff can assist them in applying it if necessary.

In addition, some of the activities may involve water, but not so much that students will be soaked. If students would like to bring a change of clothes for after the field day activities, they can leave them in their backpacks until the very end of the day.

5th Grade “Moving On” Ceremony

Our 5th graders will be moving on to middle school and we’d like to celebrate their time at Danebo. Please join us for the “Moving On Ceremony” at 9:30 in the gym, followed by a brief reception in the courtyard afterwards. 

5th grade students are welcome to remain at school for the rest of the day (and participate in the field day activities) or parents can take them with when they leave after the ceremony. Please be sure that your child’s teacher is aware if your child leaves after the ceremony.

Report Cards

Report cards will be mailed home to families on Friday, June 23rd. 

Teachers will be participating in professional development activities on Wednesday, June 21st and will finish report cards on Thursday, June 22nd.

The office will remain open THIS week from 7:30-4:00 and will be open on Monday and Tuesday of next week (June 26th and June 27th) from 8:15-2:15.

The office will close for the summer on June 28th and will reopen the first week in August.

PTO Jog-a-thon on Friday, June 9th

Do you have a free hour or two between 8:30 and 2:30 on Friday? If so, we could use your help!

Our annual PTO jog-a-thon is taking place on our track with classes running from about 9:00 until about 2:15. We are in need of volunteers to mark off laps as students run by, help with set-up and clean-up and help to record the number of laps each student runs. In addition, we can always use volunteers to cheer students on!

Please call the office (541-688-8735) if you can spare some time to cheer on our kids for a GREAT cause.

Due to the last day of school “creeping up on us”, donations and pledges for the jog-a-thon are due on Tuesday, June 13th. We want to have enough time to provide the special lunch for winners!

Thanks for supporting our PTO (which supports our students, staff and programs)!

Summer Splash Raffle Winner

Congratulations to Nicholas Baucum and his family for being the winners of the Summer Splash raffle. Nicholas encouraged his family to complete the Danebo Family Survey and as a result, took home a 3 foot by 12 foot swimming pool with accessories.

Safety Trainings Today

Danebo students and staff took part in our twice-yearly safety trainings this morning. The trainings started with a lock-down drill, followed by an earthquake drill, and ending with all students and staff evacuating the building in a fire drill.

Staff shared our plans with students ahead of time and students did a great job of listening to adult directions throughout the drills.

If you have questions about the safety drills, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. Ford (mari.ford@bethel.k12.or.us).

Surveys Due Tuesday, June 6th

Thank you SO much to the families who have taken a few minutes to complete the Danebo Family Survey. This survey will give our school team some great information regarding how we are doing in meeting some of our school-wide goals.

A reminder that tomorrow is the last day to earn a raffle ticket for turning in the survey. We will draw tickets at noon on Tuesday, June 6th, and notify the family that has won the Summer Splash basket, which includes a large swimming pool with accessories.

Thanks again for filling out the survey and sending it in with your child by Tuesday morning, June 6th!

Another Great Celebration!

Thank you to the many volunteers who were able to help out at our annual Danebo Celebration last week. Many families were able to join us and fun was had by all who attended!

A special thanks to Danebo Staff members for their assistance with the activities, set up, clean up, and of course, to those who braved the ever-popular Dunk Tank!

Just a reminder that the last day of school for Danebo Students is June 20th and it is a FULL day of school for students. We will have our first-ever all school field day in the afternoon on the 20th and would love to have parents volunteers assist with the activities.
