Thanks to our students and their families for supporting the Wolverine Contest and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) through our coin drive. Together we raised $534.03 that will be donated to the Wolverine Contest in March. Congratulations to Ms. Baldwin’s class for bringing in the highest dollar amount ($139.66) and being the recipients of a pizza party.

In addition to the coin drive, watch your child’s Tuesday folder for information about bracelets that will be sold starting next week. They say, “Danebo Loves (in the form of a heart) CMN” and will sell before school for $1.00. The proceeds will be added to our coin drive funds and donated to the Wolverine Contest in March. Students can purchase them near the cafeteria during breakfast hours.

BoxTops for Education

 Your child’s Tuesday folder will soon have information about a classroom competition for Box Tops for Education. We earn $0.10 for each valid Box Top and the class that brings in the most number of Box Tops will earn free popcorn on a popcorn day! Thanks for saving those Box Tops for Danebo!

News From Danebo’s Principal

Here’s hoping that you are enjoying your winter break with your families. A few items of interest at Danebo are listed below.

Grant Recipients

Congratulations to Meredith Deverell, Kate Aly and Angie Johnson for being the recipients of grants that will assist our students. Mrs. Deverell received a grant from the Bethel Education Foundation (BEF) to purchase a site license for an app for the 5th grade ipads that will assist with math fluency. Ms. Aly also received a BEF grant to purchase sensory items to help our students who struggle with focusing in class.

Mrs. Johnson wrote a grant to the Northwest Community Credit Union to purchase 3 ipads for student use in the classroom. The grant readers loved her application so much that they presented her with SIX ipads, cases and iTunes cards for classroom use! Very exciting for our first grade students!

Holiday Food Box Thank You’s

Thanks to our school community, Danebo PTO, Organically Grown, Lochmead Dairy, Briarwood Neighbors, Danebo Staff, Bell Real Estate and Oregon Community Credit Union, approximately 55 of our Danebo families were able to take home food and toiletry items as well as a Winco gift card. The donations will help our families who typically rely on the two meals their children receive at school to assist with food costs. Without those meal offerings during winter break, some families have a difficult time feeding everyone.

Thank you to our generous community–our Danebo families are fortunate!

Canned Food Drive Winners

Our Danebo families were the BIG winners in the canned food drive competition, but Team B is the team that will enjoy popcorn and a movie for bringing in the most canned food items. Congratulations to Team B–the classes of Mrs. Rutherford, Mrs. Kintscher, Mrs. Greenamyer, Mr. Smith and Ms. Cunningham.

Curriculum Development Day on January 4th, 2016

K-8 Teachers in Bethel will be working on curriculum development on Monday, January 4th, so there is no school for students in grades K-8.

School resumes for all K-8 students and staff on Tuesday, January 5th, 2016.

Note for Parents of Students in Grades 3-5

Here is some important information about this school year’s state tests.

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate high school ready for college or a career.

Students will take the state tests again this coming spring. While the tests in English Language Arts and Math cannot tell us everything about your child’s academic progress, the results do act as a snapshot of your child’s strengths and areas for improvement in those subject areas. The tests help Bethel School District get a more complete and accurate picture of how all Bethel students are performing, as we assess curriculum, review instructional strategies, distribute resources, and continue to improve our educational system.

Here is a fact sheet if you have general questions or want more information about the Oregon State Assessments.

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. Here is the form and further information that explains how you can opt your child(ren) out of state assessments this spring. Should you wish to opt your child out, please read the information carefully then print, complete, and return the form to our school’s main office by February 1st, 2016.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Mari Ford.

Aquí se presenta información importante sobre las pruebas escolares estatales de este año.

Cada primavera, los estudiantes de Oregón en los grados 3 a 8 y 11 participan en evaluaciones estatales en Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemática. En lugar de preguntas de opción múltiple, la prueba de hoy les pide a los estudiantes que expliquen su razonamiento y, a menudo, que escriban sus respuestas. Las nuevas evaluaciones miden habilidades más complejas como el pensamiento crítico, la escritura y la resolución de problemas, de manera que las escuelas y los padres puedan evaluar si sus niños están en buen camino para graduarse de la secundaria, están listos para la universidad o una carrera profesional.

Los estudiantes tomarán las pruebas estatales nuevamente la próxima primavera. A pesar de que las pruebas de Artes de la lengua inglesa y Matemáticas no nos dicen todo sobre el progreso académico de su hijo, los resultados funcionan como una instantánea de las fortalezas y áreas de mejora de su hijo en esas materias. Las pruebas ayudan al Distrito Escolar de Bethel a tener una imagen más completa y precisa de cuán bien se desempeñan los estudiantes de Bethel, ya que evaluamos el plan de estudios, revisamos las estrategias institucionales, distribuimos recursos y seguimos mejorando nuestro sistema educativo.

Aquí hay una hoja de datos si tiene preguntas generales o si desea obtener más información sobre las Evaluaciones del Estado de Oregón.

Bethel siempre ha tenido una alta tasa de participación en las evaluaciones estatales, ya que tanto los padres como el personal han encontrado valor en esta verificación del “punto en el tiempo” del progreso de nuestros estudiantes y nuestro sistema educativo. Sin embargo, los padres en Oregón tiene la opción de elegir que sus hijos no participen en las evaluaciones del estado. Aquí hay un formulario y más información que le explica cómo puede elegir que su(s) hijo(s) no tome las evaluaciones estatales esta primavera. Si desea elegir que su hijo no participe, lea cuidadosamente la información y luego imprima, complete y envíe el formulario a la oficina principal de nuestra escuela antes del 1.º de febrero de 2016.

Si tiene preguntas, no dude en comunicarse con la Directora.

 

Have a wonderful, safe, relaxing winter break and we will see you on  January 5th, 2016.

We are collecting canned and boxed (non-perishable) food items through Monday, December 14th and we still need your help! Food items will be shared with Danebo Families in need over the winter break. Our school-wide competition partnered classrooms together in hopes of bringing in the most number of cans.

Thanks for your support!

Thank You Albertsons and Fairfield Church of the Nazarene!

Thanks to the generosity of Albertson’s shoppers and the members of Fairfield Church of the Nazarene, approximately 75 of our Danebo families will have a Thanksgiving meal this week.
