Parents of kindergarten and 5th grade students, you won’t want to miss the year-end event that will celebrate your child’s year and in the case of 5th graders, YEARS of elementary school life!
Kindergarten will have their last day of school on Wednesday, June 12th. Morning kinders will arrive as usual and parents of afternoon kinders will bring their student to school by 11:15 AM, to get ready for their graduation into full-time school as first graders. The program will feature songs, a slide show and a special gift! There will no transportation home for students after the ceremony. If you have an questions or concerns, please contact our kindergarten teacher, Cami Railey, at 541-688-8735, ext. 2261.
Our 5th graders will be “Movin’ On” to middle school on Thursday, June 13th, at 9:30 AM. A fun slideshow of the year’s highlights, inspirational messages from staff and a presentation to each student will take place at the ceremony. Cookies and punch will be served immediately following and you are welcome to take your child home after the event.
Thanks to the Danebo community for coming out to our annual Danebo Celebration last Thursday night! The weather was “iffy” all day but it wound up being rain-free and a fun evening for all. Featured at the event were the ever-popular “health” foods including cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, and cookies. Activities such as “wacky tacky hair,” karaoke and a “candybar walk,” as well as plant and craft sales and relays, provided fun entertainment.” Great basket and staff raffles were bid on with tickets and Mexican food was offered by the Cunada Tacqueria cart on site, as well.
Of course an event like this can only be made possible by the many volunteers who came out to help make it great. A very special thanks to those who volunteered and to the many staff members who donated their time that evening.
Below is a note from Mr. James, Principal at Shasta, regarding important events for families:
Future Shasta Families,
There are two upcoming dates where you can hear more about Shasta Middle School.
Opportunity #1: On May 15th (6:30 pm) I will be in the Danebo library talking about and answering questions regarding middle School. This is your chance to get questions answered regarding your child’s transition to Shasta next school year. Please plan on joining me in the library at 6:30 p.m.
Opportunity #2: On May 21st there is a sixth grade parent night at Shasta Middle School (6:00pm-6:30pm). After the informational piece, you will have the opportunity to visit our PTO table, check-out our project faire, enjoy some BBQ, listen to our jazz band, and potentially win big at our silent auction.
I hope to see you at both of these events!

Danebo recently received gift cards totalling $500 from our local Albertsons store. Danebo came in 4th place in our recent grocery bag ban awareness collection drive. Special thanks to store director, Perry Tendick, for allowing Danebo to participate in this 10-school contest and to all you bag collectors out there who sent in your bags! We will put the money to good use during the holidays to help families in need.
Hello Danebo Families!
It’s mid-May and our school calendars are packed with great learning activities for our students. Below is information about things going on at Danebo and in the District:
Celebrating Danebo Teachers
This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week and our Danebo Support Staff and PTO have been celebrating our teachers! If you haven’t had a chance to thank your child’s teacher, a simple note, e-mail or quick phone call means a great deal to a teacher. We have an amazing staff here at Danebo, so please join me in thanking them for ALL they do for our students.
Danebo Celebration–May 16th
SAVE THE DATE! Our annual Danebo Celebration will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 next Thursday. Join us for fun carnival-like activities and snacks. It’s a great community celebration and one that we all look forward to each year. If you are able to volunteer an hour, please contact the school office (541-688-8735) and we’ll be sure to put you to work!
Calling All Kinders for Fall 2013
If you have a child who will be 5 on or before September 1st and you have not been in to the school office to begin the registration process, please do so. We will get information from you so that we can be sure to include you in our August registration information.
If you know that your child will not be attending Danebo next school year, please be sure to let the school office know. We try to keep track of which students will be returning each year and it is very helpful to know if your plans have changed and your child won’t be with us. Just give our office a call (541-688-8735) and let us know. Thanks!
News from Around Bethel:
Show n’ Shine
The weather should be perfect for a Bethel tradition. Come see the 15th annual Bethel Boosters Show n’ Shine this Saturday. It will fill the parking lot at Willamette High School with the area’s best classic cars. This car show is free to the public and only costs a few dollars for those who want to show off their wheels. For more information email the Boosters. The Show n’ Shine is the largest fundraiser for the Bethel Boosters, the hard-working volunteer group that supports students and school programs by helping with field trips, music, clubs, events, technology, athletics and more in every Bethel school.
Health Center Celebration
Stop by the Bethel Health Center to help celebrate its second anniversary. The Health Center’s Open House is next Wednesday, May 15th from 4:00-6:00. This is a full-service medical clinic for Bethel kids and has already helped more than 400 Bethel students this school year with a wide variety of medical concerns. Show your support of the Health Center and grab one of the tasty treats available at the Open House. The Bethel Health Center is located inside Cascade Middle School but has its own outside entrance.
Whooping Cough Vaccine
Yes, Whooping Cough is on the rise in our community. It spreads easily and can cause violent coughing fits that can last up to 10 weeks or more. The DTaP vaccine helps prevent this potentially life-threatening illness. Now a special one-time DTap Clinic for uninsured adults age 19 and up is being held at the Bethel Health Center, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. Call Heather Young at 541-682-8711 for more information.
