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.

Danebo students cheered on 4th graders on their way to the computer lab for State Testing

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.

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!
