PTO Jog-a-thon Success

Thank you to all students and families who supported our PTO Jog-a-thon. We raised a total of $2898.77, which means approximately $1400 will be used to purchase ChromeBooks for our students to use in classrooms.

Congratulations to our top runners (Korbyn Hayman, Braylon Rogers and Yonas Arias) who will spend a morning as Principals of Danebo. Mrs. Deverell’s class will enjoy a pizza lunch for bringing in the highest amount of donations and 29 students will join me for a special lunch in the near future for being the “top runners” in each classroom. In addition, Parker Colbert, Gage Lasslett and Liam Yielding brought in the most donations and each will receive a Danebo sweatshirt from the PTO.

Thanks to all families for supporting our PTO. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 20th at 6:30 pm in our library. We would love to have you join us! Click here for the notes from our October PTO meeting.

Important Survey

Danebo Families,

Bethel School District wants your feedback regarding the possible development and implementation of a Magnet program at the elementary level. What is a Magnet school? A magnet school offers special instruction not available at all public schools. For example a magnet school could specialize in language, arts, science, etc.

Please take a moment to complete this quick and anonymous survey. There are only 5 multiple choice questions and your help will give the District valuable information. Thanks very much for your participation.

See you tomorrow night!

Used Book Sale

Mrs. Gregory will be hosting a used book sale in the cafeteria during our Open House on Tuesday, October 9th, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

Books will be sold for very reasonable prices and are ones that have been removed from our Danebo Library inventory.

PTO Jog-a-thon Success!

Thanks to the many parent volunteers who joined students and staff on Friday for our PTO jog-a-thon.

Over the last few years, it seems as though whatever day we plan the jog-a-thon, it ensures that we will get some rain! Yet, our students persevered and did a great job walking and running for their 25 minute segment.

Thanks for helping your child get donations/pledges and sending those funds in by Wednesday, October 10th. We have some great prizes in store for students and the best prize is that half of the funds will be used to purchase Chromebooks (computers) for student use.

Thanks for supporting our PTO and our Danebo students.

Walk & Roll To School on October 10th!

Students who walk and roll (bikes, scooters, skates, etc.) to school on Wednesday, October 10th, can check in at the front of the school to receive a prize and a raffle ticket.

The raffle ticket will provide students an opportunity to win several larger prizes including a scooter, LED watches, water bottles and wearable safety lights.

Thanks for support this opportunity for students to be more healthy, expend some energy before school and be a better learner!

Friday, October 12th, No School for Bethel Students

Friday, October 12th is a Statewide Inservice Day, which means no school for all Bethel students.

All Bethel Staff will be participating in professional development across the district.

Thanks for helping us ensure the safety of all of our students.

We are SO excited to see our students on Tuesday!

Playground News

On Saturday, August 25th, Danebo was the recipient of another event sponsored by the Fairfield Church of the Nazarene. Church members built and installed a “Gaga Ball Pit” on the playground and they reduced the height of our wall ball walls.

Many thanks to our friends at Fairfield Church of the Nazarene for caring about our Danebo kids. And, if you aren’t sure what Gaga Ball is, ask your child this week—they should be able to tell you how to play it!

Meet the Teacher/PTO BBQ is Wednesday, August 29th

Please plan to join us for the Meet the Teacher event from 5:00 to 5:30 pm on Wednesday, August 29th. Class lists will be posted in front of the office by 4:00 pm and classrooms will be open from 5:00-5:30.

Supply Fees

Danebo teachers provide all of the necessary supplies for each student use in the classroom, which is why we charge a $30 per student supply fee. We ask families to provide a backpack, tissue, and hand sanitizer for each child, but no other supplies are needed.

If you haven’t paid the $30 supply fee for your child, the office will be open from 5:00-5:30 during the Meet the Teacher event on Wednesday, August 29th. Cash, checks and credit/debit cards are accepted (yes, we now have the ability to take a credit/debit card in the school office!).

If you are unable to pay the supply fee on Wednesday, our office hours are 7:30 am to 4:00 pm daily and we’d love to have you stop in to pay the fee before school starts.

Tuesday, September 4th–First Day of School

The first day of school for students in grades 1-5 is Tuesday, September 4th. Our school day goes from 8:45-2:45, with breakfast served each morning from 8:15-8:35.

We have supervision in the morning from 8:20-8:35 and in the afternoon from 2:45-2:55. Thanks for helping us ensure the safety of our students by dropping students off and picking them up during our supervision hours.

New Parking Lot Directional Arrows

Thanks to the Bethel Maintenance Staff, we have new directional arrows in our front parking lot.

We are asking families to enter the parking lot through the southwest driveway (first entrance on Candlelight), pull into the parking lot area to drop off students, and exit through the northwest driveway.

If you are walking your child to class, please be sure to park your car in a marked parking space in the front lot. Thank you for not parking in the three spaces marked “RESERVED” (closest to the ADA marked spaces).

In addition, please remember that the lane closest to the school is for buses and District vans only during drop-off and pick up hours (8:10-8:40 am and 2:25-2:50 pm).

Thank you for working with us to ensure all of our students are safe in the parking lot.
