Monday, February 20th is a School Day in Bethel!

Just a reminder that Monday, February 20th is a scheduled school day for students in Bethel School District. When reviewing the number of days that Bethel students lost due to snow and ice, The School Board decided to have Monday, February 20th be a regular school day for all students in grades K-12.

Previously, students would have had Monday, February 20th off in honor of President’s Day.

The January edition of Danebo’s newsletter has a calendar attached that shows Monday, February 20th as a no school day for President’s Day. The newsletter was completed and sent home to families prior to the School Board approving an updated calendar to make up for snow/ice days. Click here for the updated calendar (en español).

Thanks for helping Danebo Students and Staff work towards our goal of 75 days of 95% (or higher) attendance rate by getting your child to school on tome on Monday, February 20th!

BINGO Success

Thank you to all of our Danebo Friends and family for joining us last Friday evening for our PTO Bingo night. We had many families enjoy pizza, cookies and family-friendly BINGO. Our two 50/50 raffles were the largest ever with our first winner receiving $128 and our second winner receiving $62. Both winners generously donated funds back to our PTO, which was a wonderful part of the evening.

Many thanks to Tracy Hoffman, Michelle Asper and Rachel Noyes for planning the event and to our many volunteers for assisting. In addition, thanks to Mrs. Robison (Danebo’s Music Teacher) for being our BINGO caller!

Dental Kits for Kids

Today, all students at Danebo will receive a free toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and more. Oregon has one of the highest rates of childhood dental disease in the country. That is why United Way of Lane County and Burley Bicycles are teaming up with one goal in mind: Providing children in Lane County with a dental kit. Simple, preventive measures can help eliminate the dental health crisis facing Lane County children and put families back on a healthy path.

Kits Dentales para Niños

Oi, todos los estudiantes de Danebo recibirán cepillo de dientes gratis, pasta de dientes, hilo dental y mucho más. Oregon tiene una de las tasas más altas de enfermedad dental infantil en el país. Es por eso que United Way de Lane County y Burley se están uniendo con un objetivo en mente: Proporcionar a los niños en el condado de Lane con un kit dental. Medidas preventivas simples pueden ayudar a eliminar la crisis de salud dental que enfrentan los niños del Condado de Lane y poner a las familias de nuevo en un camino saludable.

School on Monday, February 20th, 2017

Monday, February 20th will be a school day for ALL students in the Bethel School District. Previously, February 20th was scheduled as a no school day in honor of President’s Day, but due to the 6.5 missed days for snow and ice, our District will have students attend school on Monday, February 20th. Thanks for helping us continue our great work on student attendance by having your child at school on time every day, including Monday, February 20th.

We Made It!

A very exciting event happened on Wednesday, February 1st—Danebo students reached our first milestone goal for attendance. We reached 50 days of 95% attendance. This means that we’ve had many days of at least 95% of our students at school! As a result of students reaching this first goal, each classroom earns extra recess time!

Our next milestone is to reach 75 days of 95% or higher attendance so that we can have a school-wide “bubble gum” party! When we reach 100 days of 95% attendance or higher, we’ll have a Family Movie Night with snacks and movie provided free for all Danebo Families.

Thanks for helping your child get to school on time, every day to help us reach our attendance goals!

Recycling Round Up at Willamette

The annual free Recycling Round-up will accept the community’s electronics and household items dropped off at Willamette High School this Saturday, February 4th, from 8:00 – 2:00. NextStep Recycling and St. Vincent de Paul will give new life to this long list of items.   This event is one reason why Willamette High School was named a national Green Ribbon School Award winner in 2014.

Danebo Construction Update

In December, 2G Construction started the process of adding doors to the ends of our breezeway. I posted a piece about the rebar and cement work that was being done over winter break. The next phase of the project will begin at the end of the month and we are VERY excited to see how things progress and get that added security in our building.

When the brick work begins at the end of February, we will have limited access through the breezeways on either the north or south side. The Construction Team is planning to work on one side at a time and our school team will have a plan in place on steering students away from the work zones.

Stay tuned for more details.

No School Monday, January 30th

Monday, January 30th is a no school day for students in grades K-8 in Bethel. Staff will be participating in professional development related to our school-wide positive behavior supports (PBIS) and learning how to assist students who’ve endured trauma.

We look forward to seeing students back at Danebo on Tuesday, January 31st.

Box Tops For Education

Wednesday, February 1st begins our classroom competition collecting Box Tops for Education. Each Box Top earns us $0.10, which adds up quickly. Thanks for continuing to save those Box Tops and sending them in with your child throughout the next few weeks. The classroom that brings in the most number of Box Tops during the competition will receive a pizza party.

Our classroom competition ends on Friday, February 17, but we continue to collect Box Tops throughout the school year, so continue to save them even after the last day of the classroom competition.

Snow Days Restored

We are excited to share the District’s finalized plans to make up lost classroom time due to the six Snow Days and two Delayed Starts we’ve already experienced. These changes will allow Danebo students to recover meaningful instructional time without putting a big dent in family summer plans.

The new calendar is attached, and here are the changes:

·         February 13 (previously a high school no-school day) will become a school day for all district students

·         February 20 (Presidents Day) will become a school day for all students

·         March 3 (previously a no-school day for K-8 students) will become a school day for all students

·         Monday June 19th, and Tuesday June 20th will be full school days for K-11 students (seniors will have graduated)

·         June 20th will now be the last day of school for students (it will be a full-day, not an early release)

·         If we have additional Snow Days this winter they may be added to the calendar after June 20th

Please mark these changes on your calendar and plan to have your child in school on these days.  All Bethel students will now be in the classroom for more hours than is required by the state, and we want to provide as much meaningful instructional time as possible. The cancelled school days have shown that each day of instruction is important for our children.

Dias de Nieve Restaurados

Estamos muy contentos de compartir los planes finalizados del Distrito para reemplazar el tiempo perdido en el aula debido a los seis Días de Nieve y dos Retrasos que ya hemos experimentado. Estos cambios permitirán que los estudiantes de Danebo recuperen tiempo de instrucción significativo sin afectar demasiado los planes de verano de la familia.

El nuevo calendario se adjunta, y aquí están los cambios:

• El 13 de febrero (anteriormente un día sin clases para la escuela secundaria) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes en los grados K-12.

• El 20 de febrero (Día de los Presidentes) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes

• El 3 de marzo (anteriormente un día sin clases para los estudiantes de K-8) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes.

• Lunes 19 de junio y martes 20 de junio serán días escolares completos para estudiantes de K-11 (los estudiantes mayores se habrán graduado)

• El 20 de junio será el último día de clases para los estudiantes (será un día completo; los estudiantes no saldrán temprano)

• Si tenemos días adicionales de nieve este invierno, pueden ser agregados al calendario después del 20 de junio

 Por favor marque estos cambios en su calendario y planee que su hijo/a asista a la escuela en estos días. Todos los estudiantes de Bethel ahora estarán en el salón de clases por más horas que las requeridas por el estado, y queremos proveer tanto tiempo instructivo significativo como sea posible. Los días escolares cancelados han demostrado que cada día de instrucción es importante para nuestros hijos.

Bethel restored school days lost to snow.
