Welcome to Sunset School

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

November 20, 2015:

I wanted to begin this week’s newsletter by saying thanks to everyone in the school who made this experience of filling in for Mr. Inskeep something that I will remember forever. The office staff, teachers, and assistants have helped make this a smooth transition between the office and my classroom.  I also thank my students for being understanding.  I look forward to being back in the classroom with them next Tuesday.

Our Sunset Girls Basketball Team keeps on winning.  After beating our rivals from North Bend Middle School last night, the girls remain undefeated. Way to go girls and Coach Banks!!!

We just wrapped our Canned Food Drive here and we had 1,541 items.  We had 46 more items this year. This goes to show how wonderful and thoughtful our Sunset community is. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who was able to donate to the drive — awesome job!  I know many families will be thankful and appreciative this Thanksgiving.

As we move closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, the words Thank You and Respect should be two of the words that our students illustrate every day here at Sunset and in our community. As most students have done a great job all year long with these, I want to remind our families that without you reinforcing these concepts at home, we would not have the best students in Coos Bay.
