Site Council & Title I

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.  Click here for a nomination form. Contact the Chamber office at 541-266-0868 for more information.

Welcome to Sunset School

Grade-Level

Teams:

4th Grade 

5th Grade 

6th Grade 

7th Grade

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.

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.


An Invitation from the Coos Bay School Board

On behalf of Coos Bay Schools Board of Directors and the Facilities Outreach Committee, you are invited to attend the December 1st Special Board meeting at 5:30 PM held at the Coos Bay Library in the meeting room. During this meeting, the Board will be deciding between two grade configuration options to which the district may be transitioning.

Option A is Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade and 7th through 12th grade

Option B is Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade and 9th through 12th grade

These options are the result of input collected by the Facilities Outreach Committee through surveys and community meetings over the last two years. There will be an opportunity for public input.

We look forward to seeing you on December 1st at 5:30 PM at the Coos Bay Library, 525 Anderson in Coos Bay.
