|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.

March 7, 2014
This has been a really busy and great week. First of all, we celebrated Classified Employee Week by bringing in special treats each day to show our thanks and appreciation for all our classified folks do. Our secretaries, custodians, library clerk, assistants, cooks, bus drivers, and others are classified employees and they are obviously very important to the operations of our school. Any one of these staff members might be the caring adult who makes the kind of positive impression on a student that lasts a lifetime. Please take a moment when you can and say thank you to our classified staff members.
We’ve had several students who have read books or have shared a talent during our morning assemblies lately. This takes a lot of courage and it’s great to see our kids support one another too. I’ll continue to provide our students opportunities to share talents in our morning assemblies.
We were fortunate enough to have the Marshfield Varsity Basketball players spend the day with us yesterday. They spoke at our assembly, visited classrooms, had a panel discussion for 7th graders during lunch, read with our students, and were around our school all day with Coach Miles being great role models for our students. Good luck to our MHS basketball team Saturday at 4:00 in their playoff game at MHS. Go Pirates!
Monday evening I will present to our school board with Mr. Howard from Millicoma to share the great work both schools are doing using data, working on professional development, and providing rigorous instruction for our students. Our school board has been working especially hard this year, learning more about the work we are doing so they are very interested in hearing about our professional development and the work we are doing to continue to improve.
Next Thursday we will have our neighbors from Madison join us for a performance from a visiting jazz band who is a part of the Jazz Festival. This has been a fun and exciting event in the past and I’m sure it will be well enjoyed this year too!
Finally, next Thursday evening, from 5:30-7:30 we will have our Literacy Night for our Sunset families. There will be several games, activities, and free food for all. We had a great turnout last year and we hope to see even more of our families participating this year. Please come on down on Thursday evening and join us for some fun family time!
Have a great weekend,
