Danebo Night at the Em’s Game

Just a reminder that if your child participated in “Sluggo’s Homerun Reading Challenge” and received Em’s game tickets, Danebo night is scheduled for this coming Monday, July 11th. The Em’s take on Hillsboro and start time is 7:05 pm at PK Park.

Each student that participated in the challenge received a ticket valid for two box seats for the game. Bring this ticket with you to the Em’s Boxoffice to exchange it for your box seats.

Wear your Danebo shirts to show your school spirit. See you at the Em’s Game on Monday!

Last Week of School Events at Danebo

Sadly, this is our last week of school in Bethel. However, we have some great events going on to celebrate our students’ success this year:

  • Tuesday, June 14th at 2:00 our Kindergarten students will celebrate their successes of the year. Please sign in at the office and join them in the gym.
  • Wednesday, June 15th, at 10:00, our Life Skills students will participate in their annual “Bubble Ceremony” in the Life Skills classroom. Please sign in at the office and join them in the classroom.
  • Thursday at 9:30 is the 5th Grade’s Moving On Ceremony in the gym. Please sign in at the office and join them in the gym.

Thursday is our last day of school and ALL students in grades K-5 will be dismissed at 11:45. Please be sure arrangements have been made for early pick-up if your child does not ride the bus.

Thanks, also, for contacting Shanna, our Health Assistant, if you have medication to be picked up. Shanna will be in the health room on Thursday until 2:30 pm. Medication that has not been picked up before the office closing will be discarded.

Supervision Starts at 8:15 a.m.

Yes, we only have three more days of school this year, but just a reminder that our buses arrive most days at about 8:15, and that is when we have supervision on site for students. Please be sure if you are dropping off your child (or they are walking/biking to school) that they do not arrive prior to 8:15. Thanks for your help with this.

Report Cards Mailed Home

This year, we will mail ALL report cards home on Monday, June 20th, instead of sending them home with students on the last day of school. This will provide teachers an opportunity to use the in-service day on Friday, June 17th to complete report cards.

Danebo Summer Office Hours

Our office will be open on Monday, June 20th, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Beginning Tuesday, June 21st, the office will be closed.

Our secretaries will return to the office on Monday, August 8th at 7:30 a.m.

Save the Date!

You will receive a postcard from Danebo in early August reminding you to come in on August 16th or 17th for registration for ALL families!

Have a GREAT summer and we will see you on August 16th and/or 17th for registration for the 2016-17 school year.

Bethel School District has proactively chosen to test the water in our schools, including Danebo, responding to concerns raised throughout the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.

The samples from all drinking water sources in all Bethel schools will be tested as soon as school is out for summer. This will allow an independent professional environmental service to access the water sources without interruption in order to ensure the most accurate testing.

The samples may take at least 10 business days to process but the results will be immediately shared with families and staff. While there are no federal or state requirements that schools test their water, the safety of the students in our care is our highest priority.


Bethel School District ha elegido de manera proactiva probar el estado del agua en nuestras escuelas, incluyendo Danebo, y estamos tomando esta acción para responder a las preocupaciones en todo el país acerca de la posibilidad de plomo en el agua potable de las escuelas.

Muestras de agua de todas las fuentes potables en toda la escuela se pondrán a prueba tan pronto como la escuela esté cerrada durante el verano. Esto permitirá que tengamos un servicio ambiental profesional independiente para acceder a las fuentes de agua sin interrupción con el fin de asegurar la prueba más precisa.

Pueda que se tome por lo menos 10 días para procesar el resultado de las muestras de agua que se tomarán de nuestras escuelas, pero los resultados serán compartidos inmediatamente con las familias y el personal. No hay requisitos federales o estatales que las escuelas pongan a prueba su agua, sin embargo la seguridad y el cuidado de los estudiantes es nuestra prioridad más alta.

Join us for the Danebo Celebration TONIGHT!

Our annual Danebo Celebration is this evening from 5:30-7:30. It’s a family centered evening full of fun activities, tasty treats and great baskets to win through our PTO raffle. New this year is a Dunk Tank with several staff members volunteering to take a turn getting wet and Zany Zoo is returning with their amazing exotic animals. Many of the activities are free, with the dunk tank, Zany Zoo and face painting requiring 1-2 tickets each.

Please join us for a GREAT evening of fun, family and Danebo Celebrations!

See you tonight!


Safety Drills Took Place Today

Danebo students and staff successfully completed our safety drills this morning. We did a lockdown drill, followed by an earthquake drill, followed by a fire drill. Each time we practice, we learn more and our school becomes more safe. Please take a few minutes to ask your child/children about the safety drills and what they learned. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Mari Ford if you have questions or comments about your child’s experience today.


Safety Drills at Danebo

On Thursday, May 26th, students and staff will practice lock-down, earthquake and fire drills. Teachers have provided students with grade-level appropriate information on each drill and have practiced the drills prior to our all school drills on Monday.

In the lock-down drill, staff will lock all doors, close all blinds and secure students within classrooms away from windows. Upon the release of the lock-down drill, we will practice an earthquake drill where students and staff will “duck and cover” under desks and tables. Students will then exit the building at the sound of the fire alarm and meet in our designated earthquake drill spots (the baseball diamond/track) south of the building.

This week, teachers have been talking to students and practicing to prepare them for the drill.

Teachers will let students know that during a lockdown it’s very important to stay quiet and listen to adult directions in order to stay safe. Teachers will also share that in the event of imminent danger, they may ask students (depending on grade level) to help barricade the door to make sure no one can enter the room or ask students to quickly evacuate the building.

These are rehearsals that we hope to never have to be put into practice. At the same time we are also meeting state requirements which call for schools to practice lockdown drills & earthquake drills at least two times per year.

If you have questions regarding our drills, feel free to contact your child’s teacher or Mari Ford (

Books For All Danebo Kids

Today, your child will be coming home with a book that they chose from the book give away, courtesy of the Javon Simmons/Jesse Hernandez Memorial Fund. Facilitated by Bethel Volunteer (and retired Bethel teacher), Chris Ferguson, students browsed through hundreds of books in the library, selecting one that they can keep and read over the summer.

Thanks for checking with your child to see what book they chose and finding time to read it together!
