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.

Rachel’s Challenge

2014/2015 School Calendar

2014-15 School Year Calendar
In 2014-2015 we will be keeping our model of early release Fridays for our educators to do their PLC (Professional Learning Community) work. It has been successful and helped to improve our student learning. Each Friday staff gather to review student
performance, plan for common lessons and assessments, and provide for the learning of every child so that no one falls behind and those who are advanced get the support they need.

2014-15 Student Calendar


Attendance Calling

The district office would like to give you an update on the automated attendance service. It has been activated and is programmed to call the primary number listed for the student whenever they have an unexcused absence. If you know your student is going to be absent, please contact the office before 8:30 AM to excuse the absence or send a note with your student when they return to school. If you call after the cut-off time, you will still receive the automated call.

If you would like to change the number that is called or remove a number, please contact the school office and they will be happy to make the change for you.


Your Support Helps Coos Bay Students Succeed!

You are invited to join the Coos Bay Facilities Outreach Committee as we seek community input in developing plans for the future of Coos Bay Schools.
 
We will be holding a workshop on January 25th from 9:00 AM– 3:00 PM in the Library at Marshfield High School with a complimentary lunch provided at 12:00.
 
The committee is looking for community input on facilities and grade configurations that support student achievement. Our goal for the day is to develop tangible solutions the District can further explore and then apply to our school buildings. It’s important to include everyone in this discussion about the future of our children and community. Your involvement and support will make all the difference.

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.

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.
