Here’s the latest from our Site Council


EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION AWARD NOMINEES SOUGHT

The Bay Area Chamber of Commerce believes that great education and a great economy go hand in hand. Thriving businesses support a healthy education and graduates who are work or college-ready in turn support our local businesses and community. It is our goal to build bridges between business and education throughout the Bay Area. To that end, we are looking for nominations for three Educator Awards which are handed out annually:

Innovation in Teaching is for educators that are on the cutting edge and may form exciting community or business partnerships or utilize technology to improve learning.

Contributor to Education is for educators who contribute to the learning of students by their tireless efforts, time and dedication.

Unsung Hero is for educators recognized for their dedication to making sure students graduate. Regardless of their titles, they are all heroes to the students they help reach the goals of diploma or degree.

From these three honorees a Bay Area Educator of the Year is selected and will be honored at the annual Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet the last Saturday in January. The two runners up will be recognized at our monthly luncheons following the banquet.

This is a great way to recognize that individual educator that has made a difference in a student’s life. Anyone can make a nomination and nominations can be made any time during the year but the deadline for submission is November 30th. The form is accessible online at www.oregonsbayarea.org . Contact the Chamber office at 541-266-0868 for more information.


Volunteer Information

We can use your help! If you haven’t signed up to volunteer for the 2014-15 school year, go to http://cbd9.net/human-resources/volunteers. The more volunteers involved in our schools, the better the students do.

 


School Closures or Delayed Starts

Coos Bay Public Schools will utilize the Synrevoice automated phone system to notify families of school closures, delayed starts and  other emergencies.

In the event of a closure or delayed start, the automated system will be activated, usually by 6:00 am, and all families will be called and given the message. Included in the message will be a phone number that you can call to get a recorded update. Please be sure your contact information is correct at the schools.

The information will also be sent out to via Flash Alert to the media and posted on the district‘s website at www.cbd9.net. If you would like to receive Flash Alert notification, go to  www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=1374. At that site, you can sign up to receive both text messages and e-mails for emergency alerts and news releases.


Superintendent Advisory Team Members Needed

Superintendent Dawn Granger is looking for parent volunteers to be on the Superintendent’s Advisory Team (SAT). The SAT is a group that meets monthly with Dawn and is comprised of parents representing each school in the Coos Bay district. If you are interested in being on the committee or have questions how you can represent your child’s school, please contact your school’s administrator. For more information about the SAT, go to the Superintendent’s Advisory Team webpage @ www.cbd9.net under the Parents & Community Link or call 541-267-1310. Meetings take place at Milner Crest Education Center, 1255 Hemlock Ave in Coos Bay on the first Monday of each month at 12:00 noon.

Sunset School is one of two campuses for grades 4-7 in the Coos Bay School District. We are committed to creating a safe and respectful learning environment for each of our Sunset Dolphins.

Our 4th – 6th grade students are in self-contained classrooms, much like a traditional elementary school.  7th graders change classes for math, science, language arts, social studies, music, and physical education with content-area specialists.

We are proud to have a school that has the community feeling of an elementary and the flexibility of a middle school.  Please check our Staff Directory to link to your student’s teachers and stay tuned to our website for current information about our school.

Principal’s Pad

October 17, 2014 — Our students and staff did a great job during our earthquake/tsunami drill yesterday.  The weather cooperated with blue skies and sunshine which was nice for everyone because we were going for it regardless of the weather.  Our students took it seriously and walked the mile route uphill to higher elevation. All of the students and staff, from both Madison and Sunset, made it to the top in about 23 minutes.  We are very lucky to have the great support from our bus company and our local police and fire department.  Their presence made sure our kids were as safe as possible as we walked along the road on our route to the top of the hill.

I will be heading over to Bend this weekend and will be gone on Monday and Tuesday.  As a part of our participation in our BEC/Proficiency Grant, I will be presenting on the great work our Sunset staff is doing at the COSA (administrator) conference taking place in Bend.  While I don’t like to be gone from school, it is really cool to be able to share about the great things happening at Sunset.  Megan Free, who is an instructional coach for our district, will be filling in for me when I’m gone.  I know she’ll do a great job with your children.

Have a great weekend,
Dale Inskeep
