Kudos to our OBOB Team

Congratulations to Stevie Freitas, William Zilar, India Rodriguez and Natalie Epprecht for representing Danebo at the Regional OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) competition last weekend.  These students agreed to read 14 novels and learn every possible detail about the books in an effort to out-challenge teams from other local schools.  They persevered through many after school practice sessions and were the winners of our school-wide battle allowing them to represent Danebo at the Regional competition.

Thanks to Kim Gregory, Danebo Media Coordinator and the other adult volunteers who assisted with OBOB this year.

Keep an eye out for next year’s OBOB book list, which is likely to be available soon!

School Year Extended Another Day

All Bethel schools will add one more day to the end of this school year. It’s part of a continuing effort to restore school days that were cut due to budget reductions.

The last day of school will be Thursday, June 11th. It means the day before Thanksgiving was the only budget reduction day this school year.

The District has been able to maintain a healthy reserve fund to use on another school day. The Bethel School Board also plans to hire more staff next fall to further reduce class size, fulfilling part of an agreement the District and teachers signed when all employees collectively made sacrifices during the heart of the recession.

All eyes now turn to the state legislature where school funding for the coming school year is still being determined. Along with restoring school days and adding back staff, Bethel plans to begin full-day Kindergarten in September which makes adequate funding from the state all the more important.

Año escolar extendido

Todas las escuelas de Bethel agregaran un día más para el final de este año escolar. Es parte de un esfuerzo continuo para restaurar días escolares que fueron cortados debido a las reducciones presupuestarias en años pasados.

El último día de clases será el jueves 11 de junio. Esto significa que el día antes de Acción de Gracias fue el único día que la reducción del presupuesto de este año escolar.

El Distrito ha sido capaz de mantener un fondo de reserva saludable para poder usar este fondo en un día extra. La Junta Escolar de Bethel también planea contratar más personal el próximo otoño para reducir aún más el número estudiantes en cada clase, y cumple en parte con un acuerdo que el Distrito y los maestros firmaron cuando todos los empleados colectivamente hicieron sacrificios durante la recesión.

Ahora todo el enfoque está en la legislatura estatal, donde todavía se está determinando los fondos escolares para el próximo año escolar. Junto con la restauración de días escolares y más empleados en nuestro distrito, Bethel planea comenzar Kindergarten de día completo en septiembre, lo que hace la financiación adecuada del Estado aún más importante.
