A Positive Send-Off for Fourth Grade Students
Today, Mrs. Deverell’s students embarked on their first full day of Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC) in the computer lab. They were encouraged to do their best by the majority of the rest of the students in the school who lined the breezeway and greeted them with encouraging words as they headed into the computer lab.
Students in grades 3-5 will participate in week-long sessions in the computer lab, taking assessments in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, and Science (5th grade). We are trying a new schedule this year in hopes that providing longer testing sessions will allow students to be more thoughtful and take their time on the assessments.
It was great to see our students encouraging our 4th graders on this morning and we look forward to the event taking place over the course of the next few weeks as other classes take their turn on the assessments.
Calling All 2019-20 Kindergarteners!
Danebo will be sharing information with families of students who will be attending Kindergarten at Danebo next school year on Wednesday, April 24th.
We have two informational sessions—3:15 pm and 6:30 pm. Families can choose one session to learn about our Kindergarten program and how to register their child.
If you have a child who will turn 5 on or before September 1st of this year OR you know someone in your neighborhood who does, please join us on Wednesday, 4/24.
Way to Go, Danebo!
Twenty Days of 95% Attendance = Hats for All!
Thanks to Richardson Company and Chris Ferguson, Bethel Volunteer Extraordinaire, Danebo students who attended school on Friday, April 19th each received a hat or visor for reaching our 20 day attendance goal.
Every afternoon, our daily attendance percentage is shared on our school-wide announcements, with our goal being to reach 95%. We were hoping to get to 20 days of 95% attendance in order to receive a special reward and on Friday, we made it!
We are looking forward to more 95% attendance days ahead, so thank you for encouraging your child to be at school EVERY day!
Save the Date—CATCH Family Activity Night
Thursday, May 2nd, from 5:30-7:00, plan to join us in the gym and cafeteria at Danebo for some fun family-centered activities and healthy snacks.
Students have been learning about healthy snacks and the impact of physical activity on our bodies, so this event is a perfect opportunity for them to share information with their families!
The CATCH program (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) has been supporting Danebo students through curriculum and supplies for the last several years and this is our first CATCH Family Activity night.
Join us for fun activities, a salsa bar and other healthy snacks!
