Hello Blossom Gulch Families,
I would like to welcome all of our Kindergarten families! This was the first week for Kindergarten students and it has been loads of fun. All of us are getting back into our routines of getting up on time and working to do our best.
Next week on Tuesday and Wednesday we will be having our Curriculum Night from 6 to 7:30. This is a change from past years and we hope everyone will find the evening worthwhile. We will begin in the gym with some general presentations, breakout session with grade level teams and then time to meet with individual teachers. Our teachers are very dedicated and have important information to share with parents about our curriculum, the skills they will be teaching your children, their expectations and routines. We will have adults here to supervise children while parents are meeting with teachers. The dates are:
First grade: Tuesday, September 16
Second Third grade: Wednesday, September 17
Please remember that school starts at 7:50. We are off to a great start and I an looking forward to a spectacular school year.
School Volunteer Trainings
Coos Bay Schools is offering Volunteer Trainings on September 18th and 25th. The training is free and open to the public.

Free breakfast or dinner is provided with your registration and there is limited childcare available.
Both September 18th & 25th have sessions from 8:00 – 10:00 AM and 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
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.

This training is provided in collaboration with Pathways to Positive Parenting, OSU Open Campus and Southwestern Oregon Community College.
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.
