It’s a busy time of year, yet we continue to do great things for the students at Danebo. Thanks for staying in touch with events at school by reading this BLOG in addition to the communications coming home with your child each week. Below is some information about upcoming events:
Danebo PTO Meets on Tuesday, 11/19
Please join us from 6:30 to 7:30 in the library to share your ideas with our PTO. Free childcare is provided (in the gym/cafeteria area) along with snacks and a homework pass for your child. We’d love to hear from you and have you join us for this hour.
Speaking of PTO…
Fundraiser packets are due to your child’s homeroom teacher on Tuesday, November 19th. Please send the order forms along with payments to school on Tuesday and have your child turn them in to their classroom teacher. Orders will be sent off and we hope to have them returned no later than the second week in December. Thank you for your support of this fundraiser. It will allow our PTO to continue to support school-wide programs including assemblies and classroom fieldtrips.
Upcoming No School Days
There is no school for Bethel students in Grades K-8 this Friday, November 22nd so that teachers can prepare report cards.
The following week, November 25th, 26th, and 27th are no school days for all Bethel students and staff due to Budget Reduction Days, followed by no school on the 28th and 29th for Thanksgiving.
School will resume on Monday, December 2nd.
Parent-Teacher Conferences and The Scholastic Book Fair
We will hold parent-teacher conferences on Tuesday, December 3rd, Wednesday, December 4th and Thursday, December 5th. Conference times have been scheduled and confirmation slips have been sent home (with a second reminder going home this week). Thank you for committing to spending a few minutes to meet with your child’s teacher and hear about their educational experience. You can then stop by the library and check out the Scholastic Book Fair. It’s a great opportunity to purchase holiday gifts and support our school library.
On Thursday, December 5th, students in grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 11:45 and there is no Kindergarten that day. Friday, December 6th is a no school day for all K-8 students in Bethel.
A few changes have taken place with our Danebo Staff recently. Mr. Jim Henningsgaard (Extended Resource Room teacher) has taken a leave of absence for the remainder of the school year to assist with some family situations in Minnesota. Mrs. Paula Ward (Music teacher) had to resign her position for medical reasons and Mrs. Kim Kilmer, our Health Assistant, moved on to work as an Educational Assistant in a neighboring district. All positions are in the process of being filled with replacements. Join me in wishing our former staff members well in their new endeavors.
Alberstons’ “Help a Family in Need Program”…
Is supporting Danebo Families once again this year. Customers shopping at the Albertsons on Royal Avenue are asked if they are willing to donate to the “Help a Family in Need” program and those financial donations are used to purchase turkey dinners for Danebo families for Thanksgiving. Many thanks to our Albertsons partners and to all of the community members who generously donate to the program.
Please join us tonight, Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30 pm in the library. We will be discussing: JOGATHON RECAP and the FALL/WINTER FUNDRAISER. PTO is a great way to offer valuable input into our school, meet other parents and get to know Danebo staff. Please join us as your opinion matters!
FREE childcare, snacks and homework passes for your student(s)!
Hope to see you there!

Our students, staff and volunteers persevered through the rain showers and gave it their all at our jog-a-thon on September 27th. Thanks to all parents who counted laps, served water, ran with kids and cheered them on! What a great group we had, including several students from Willamette High School who joined us for the day.
Stay tuned for results of top prizes, top runners and top classes as well as a total amount raised for the entire school.

Hey Danebo Families!
We are well into our first month of school (almost to the second month) and what a great month it has been. Students have reviewed routines, virtues and expectations and are doing a great job practicing them. Thanks for staying connected and keeping up to date on what’s going on at Danebo. Below are some school-wide and District-wide events that you should know about:
All Bethel Schools Will Be In Session on Friday, September 27th!
What was previously a budget reduction day in Bethel is now a school day–woohoo! As a result of additional funds to schools from the Legislature, we were able to restore two budget reduction days (September 27th and June 13th).
PTO Jog-a-thon Is Almost Here!
Grab your sweats and your running/walking shoes and join us on Friday, September 27th for the Danebo PTO Jog-a-thon fundraiser. Students in all classes will run/walk our track (in the field south of the school building) at varying times throughout the day (9:00-2:10) for two reasons–to get some great exercise AND to help raise funds for our PTO. Pledge envelopes will go home with students in Tuesday folders this week and will need to be returned on Thursday, October 3rd.
Prizes (top fundraisers, top runners from each class, top runner for the school, and the class who brings in the most funds) will be announced the following week. Funds from the jog-a-thon support our school-wide assemblies and classroom field trips, so we appreciate ANY donation amount that students receive. If you would like to help out with the jog-a-thon, please call the school office (541-688-8735) and we’ll gladly use your help.
Save the Date!
Our Open House is scheduled for Thursday, October 17th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. We’ll kick off the Open House with everyone meeting in the gym for introductions, followed by students and parents visiting classrooms. Thanks for saving the date for this important event!
District-Wide News to Share:
Resources Available for Bethel Families
Bethel has purchased a license for FREE access to on-line resources for educators and families through Iris Media. You can access the resources by logging on to: www.irisEd.com
The District key code is EsETia and once you log in with this code, you can click on “Set up an Account” to allow you to access the information on the site. Take a look and let your principal know what you think of the resources by responding to their blog.
The new Little Wolverine preschool program based at Willamette High School is now accepting children from the community. Here’s more information on this high-quality program: Little Wolverine Preschool.
Opportunities and Events
There is a world outside of our school’s walls. To help all of us keep track of other Bethel School District-wide events, there’s now Bethel’s Opportunities and Events web page. It will list all kinds of events staged by Bethel school PTOs, Clubs, Sports Support Groups, Outside Agencies, etc.
If your group wants to share their school-related fundraising or event info with a wider audience in Bethel, email your solicitation to Pat McGillivray at the Bethel District office.
Safety and Equity
If you believe in reducing harassment and bullying, if you believe that all students should be able to graduate high school on time, and if you believe you can make a difference in our district then Safety and Equity Committee wants you at the table.
The commitment is workable: the committee meets 4 times each year and acts as an advisory committee to the Bethel School Board by providing support, guidance and information about issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion in our schools and programs.
Please contact Remie Calalang at the Bethel District office for more information on this important group.
