Breakfast Changes for this Year

Changes in Danebo’s breakfast service started Wednesday, September 11th.  

  • What it was:  Chocolate Milk was available
  • What it will be:  We will only be offering white milk for breakfast.  Chocolate milk will still be available for lunch.

One of the reasons why for this change is to try to reduce the sugar intake in the mornings as well as a small budgetary savings.

  • What it was:  Bagels and cream cheese was available every day.
  • What it will be:  Bagels and cream cheese will be available every other Monday. 
  • What it was: Cereal was only available on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays.
  • What it is:  Cereal is available every day.  Also Cereal will be served with Graham Crackers to meet the grain requirements.  This change was implemented on the first day of school.

If you have questions regarding the changes mentioned above, please contact our Nutrition Services Director, Mike Vetter (

Information About State Tests

Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Additionally, students in grades 5, 8 and 11 participate in science testing. Bethel has always had a high participation rate on state assessments as both parents and staff have found value in this “point-in-time” check on the progress of our students and our educational system. However, parents in Oregon have the option to opt their children out of the state assessments. Click here for more information. (PDF)
