Happy New Year!

On behalf of the Danebo Staff, we hope your family enjoyed a happy and healthy holiday season. We are excited to be back with the students and look forward to the great learning opportunities to come in the remainder of the 2017-18 school year!

We NEED Your Help…

To reach our school-wide attendance goal. We have a daily goal of 95% or higher attendance rate and we currently have 39 days of 95% or higher student attendance. When we reach our first goal of 40 days (of 95% or higher attendance), we will have a “Warm-up With Our Buddy Classes” event and enjoy hot chocolate.

Please help us out by ensuring that all of our students are at school on time each day! We know that we have great learning opportunities for our students and we want them at school!

If your child is sick, please do keep them home (and thanks for calling our office to let us know they will be absent), but when they are fever-free for 24 hours, we want them back!

Thanks for helping us reach our 95% Attendance Goal!

Thanks to Our Community Supporters

On Friday, December 15th, we opened the cafeteria up to our Friday Food Pantry. With support from the Assistance League of Eugene, along with many community sponsors (see below), we provided food, toiletries, clothing, scarves, hats and gift cards to local grocery stores to over 50 Danebo Families.

Families selected food items provided by our December canned food drive, along with the Assistance League Food Pantry supports.

Many thanks to our sponsors for providing Danebo Families with food and supplies needed to get through the winter break: Organically Grown, Bell Real Estate, Oregon Community Credit Union, Tire Sport, Briarwood Bunko Group and Friends, Dr. Stambaugh, Lochmead Dairy, Brian Cravens, Laurie Crandall & Family, Cosmo Creations, and Danebo Students and Staff.

School Choice In March

Although we are still many weeks away, it’s important you know that Bethel’s Open Enrollment process will take place during the month of March. Through Open Enrollment, you may request that your child attend the Bethel school of your choice. Being placed in your preferred school will depend on the space available.

Each Bethel school and the District Office will have forms that are very simple to complete. They will also be available online. Watch for more information as we get closer to the March Open Enrollment period.

Elección de escuela en marzo

Aunque todavía faltan muchas semanas para el final, es importante que sepa que el proceso de inscripción abierta de Bethel tendrá lugar durante el mes de marzo. A través de la Inscripción abierta, puede solicitar que su hijo asista a la escuela Bethel de su elección. Ser colocado en su escuela preferida dependerá del espacio disponible.

Cada escuela de Bethel y la Oficina del Distrito tendrán formularios que son muy simples de completar. También estarán disponibles en línea. Esté atento a más información a medida que nos acercamos al período de inscripción abierta de marzo.
