Walk & Roll to School

Walk and roll to school was a HUGE success for Danebo students this week. We had 125 students participate in walking, biking and riding scooters to school on Wednesday and handed out lots of great prizes. Five students took home larger prizes (scooters, bike locks, umbrella) and one student was entered in a District level drawing for a gift certificate for a bike shop.

Many thanks to Jen Hubbard, Kyla Gevatosky, Deedra Patrick and Krisia Zepeda for volunteering their time to get prizes out to students and check students in during the morning time.

60 Day Attendance Goal

We met our most recent attendance goal of having 95% of students at school for 60 days! Students enjoyed a “bubble party” with their class (bubble gum or bubbles) as a celebration and we are ready to move on to the next goal.

Mrs. Johnson’s class shows off their “bubbles”, celebrating our 60 day attendance goal!

Thank you for supporting your child’s education by ensuring they are at school every day. We want to finish the school year strong so that we can meet the goal for reaching 75 days of 95% or higher attendance, and we have only 11 days to go to meet that goal!

Save the Date for the Annual Danebo Celebration

Be sure to save the date of Thursday, June 7th and join us for our annual Danebo Celebration. Low cost/no cost activities will take place throughout the building in our fun school community event.

Each quad has a theme for a basket with items donated by families. Baskets will be raffled off and have some really great prizes including: golfing at Fiddlers, passes to OMSI, passes to the Oregon Coast Aquarium, gift cards to Putters, Jerry’s, Lochmead and more.

Thanks to our community and business sponsors for helping us out with donations.

Donations for baskets can be brought to your child’s classroom through June 1st. Thanks for your help and we look forward to seeing you on the 7th!

NED Show at Danebo

Last Friday, Danebo students were entertained by LeRon, a representative from the NED Show. The NED Show is uses storytelling, humor, illusions and yo-yo tricks to entertain students while encouraging students to “Never Give Up”, “Encourage Others” and “Do Your Best”. The NED Assembly was presented to students free of charge provided that we allow students to purchase the NED yo-yo’s for the week following the show.

Yo-yo’s will be sold in the gym in the morning from 8:20-8:35 am, this coming week (April 16-20), and range in price from $8-$15 each (see the attached flier). Danebo does not receive any funds from the sales of the yo-yo’s, but making them available to students allows the NED Show to continue the assemblies in other schools.

Students will be allowed to use their yo-yo’s at a designated space during recess each day.
