As you examine the report card from the 2013-14 school year, know that our school is now introducing new math and English language arts curriculum. The current school year will also be longer than it has been in the last few years.

Hey Danebo Families,

It is hard to believe that we are in December and almost three months of school have passed. Great things are going on in classrooms at Danebo and we appreciate you taking time to remain connected to your child’s education.

Parent-Teacher Conferences This Week

Just a reminder that we have parent-teacher conferences this week on Wednesday, 12/10 and Thursday, 12/11. Thank you for ensuring that you keep your scheduled conference time this week.  Our teachers have been preparing to share a lot of information with you regarding your child’s progress and this is a GREAT opportunity for you to remain involved in your child’s education.  Conferences are Wednesday from 3:15-5:30 and 6-8:40 and Thursday from 12:30-5 and 5:30-8:40.  Other conference week reminders:

No Kindergarten on Thursday, 12/11.

Students in grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 11:45 on Thursday, 12/11.

No ELD Homework Club the week of 12/9-12/12.

In addition to conferences this week, the Scholastic Book Fair will be going on in our library. Purchasing books from our Book Fair provides great things—books for your family and books for our library!

Congratulations to Selco Grant Winners!

Kudos to Angie Johnson and Brenna Perkins, Danebo teachers, for securing grants from Selco Community Credit Union. Angie received $500 to purchase ipods, headphones and a splitter for a listening center for her reading groups.  Brenna received $500 to purchase supplies to bring science alive in the Life Skills classroom.  Congratulations to Angie and Brenna and thank you for going out of your way to add resources for our Danebo students.

New Computer Lab is Open!

On Friday, 12/5, our District Technology Staff moved our computers from the old computer lab to our new one, located in the back portion of the library. Our amazing District Maintenance Staff spent time over the last several months building a new computer lab, installing new carpet, painting, and completing the electrical work necessary to house 35 computers.  Final inspections were passed and classes will start using the new lab this week!  It will be a great space for teaching and learning, adding more space and a means for teachers to use the lab as a teaching station with a new ceiling-mounted projector.  Stop by and check out the new lab when you are in the building this week—it’s pretty exciting!

On Track For Success

Here’s a big reason to attend next week’s parent-teacher conferences. If your child is in grades 1-8 and was enrolled last year in the Bethel School District, you will receive an On Track for Success Report.  This a research-based, Bethel-created tool that identifies students who are on-track to graduate with a regular Oregon diploma, those who are falling behind, and those who are at-risk of not graduating. An individualized report has been created for each student and teachers will share the report with parents.  The On-Track for Success Report is used by our school to help determine the appropriate measures to keep students on-track to graduation.

Bethel has been presenting to schools and districts throughout the northwest interested in its On-Track for Success Report. Be sure to attend parent-teacher conferences for details on your child’s On-Track report.
