Dear Friends and Family of Room 19:

 

I would like to welcome you all to the First Grade.  This is my first year at Coquille Valley Elementary and I am looking forward to all the fun and excitement in this school year. I can’t wait to get to know you and your students and to share this year with all of you.

 

Students will be bringing home a red “School to Home” folder every evening. Students will not be sent home much, if any, homework this year. However, I do recommend that you spend time reading with your student as often as you can. I will send home important notes about class trips, events, and student work in the folders.  Please check these nightly, and feel free to use these as a line of communication with me.  The easiest way for me to stay in touch is through e-mail.  I will also be sending home classroom newsletters once per week to let you know what is going on in the classroom and keep you up to date.

 

Let me tell you a little about me.  I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and spent much of my childhood there. In 2010 I graduated from Myrtle Point High School and continued on to college. I graduated from Eastern Oregon University with a Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies and Elementary Education. My Spare time is spent with my husband, daughter, horse, two dogs, and two cats. We love to be outside exploring, relaxing, and trying new things.

 

I am excited to be teaching at Coquille Valley Elementary and to have the opportunity to work with your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  All of us working together will ensure a successful year for our class.

 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lloyd

Dear Friends and Family of Room 20:

 

I would like to welcome you all to the First grade.  We are going to have a very fun and exciting year.  I can’t wait to get to know you and your students and share this year with all of you.

 

Students will be bringing home a “Homework” folder every evening.   Your student’s folders have two main purposes: to keep homework in a specific place where parents and students can find it, and for communication between myself and parents.  I will send home important notes about class assignments, trips, and other events in the folders.  Please check these nightly, and feel free to use these as a line of communication with me.  In addition to sending notes with your child, you can also reach me by e-mail.

 

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I was born and raised in Coos Bay and graduated from Marshfield High School.  After graduation I moved to Portland and worked at First Interstate Bank.  After working for several years at the bank I decided to go back to school to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher.  I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science degree and from Pacific University with a Masters in Education.  I have taught both kindergarten and first grade.  During my free time I enjoy knitting, reading and watching football.  I also love the ocean and beachcombing.

 

I am excited to be teaching at Coquille Valley Elementary and have the opportunity to work with your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  All of us working together will ensure a successful year for our class.

 

 

Sincerely,

Let me tell you a little about me.  I am a native of Coquille.  I attended Lincoln School through 4th grade, when my parents moved to Myrtle Point.  I graduated from Myrtle Point High School in 2002.  I love to read, do things outdoors with my family, dance, and teach Insanity.  Many of you may have seen me around town, volunteering for Special Olympics or dancing at the Sawdust Theatre.  I have two beautiful children, my son Brody and daughter Kendra.  I am a graduate of Western Oregon University where I got my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood/ Elementary Education.  I completed my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education through Southern Oregon University.  This is my eleventh year teaching and I am glad to be back for another great year!  I love to learn about things by experiencing them, so you will be hearing about lots of fun activities from your students.

 

I am excited to be teaching at Coquille Valley Elementary and have the opportunity to work with your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  All of us working together will ensure a successful year for our class.

Hello and welcome to 2nd grade!

 

I am so excited to work together with you and your family throughout this school year! This is my first year at Coquille Valley Elementary School. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Corban University in Elementary Education. We are going to learn and grow together so much this year. I am looking forward to helping each of you succeed.

 

Every student has a Friday folder filled with papers to keep at home, and some papers to return to school. They will include a weekly newsletter to keep you up-to-date on what is happening in our classroom. Please check folders over the weekend and return them on Monday. Our homework in second grade is practicing the spelling words that are sent home in the Friday folder. Please read with your student as often as you can to help them learn and grow at home!

 

There is a link on our school’s homepage for Think Central, an online learning resource that connects to what we are learning in class. Let’s work together to be safe, be respectful, and be responsible this year!

Dear Friends and Family of Room 23:

 

My name is Alisha Wells and I will have the privilege of being your child’s Second Grade Teacher this year. I am excited about beginning this school year and look forward to getting to know your child.

I want to tell you a little about myself since I will be spending a good amount of time with your child. I grew up in Coquille and graduated from high school here in 1995. I received my bachelor’s degree from Oregon State University and my master’s degree from Southern Oregon University. I have two children who are in the Coquille School System. My oldest is a second grader this year and my youngest is going into kindergarten.

 

 I will be using the spelling words from our weekly reading lessons this year. There will be spelling pages out of the reading workbook sent home each week. These pages will be our spelling work practice that is not done in class. The words will focus on the phonics skill that we are learning in reading for the week. There will be a pretest on Wednesday; and a Final Test on Friday. If there is no school on Friday, the pretest will be on Tuesday and the final test will be on Thursday.

I’m looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a successful second grade year! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. The best time to reach me is after school from 3:05 until 3:50.  I am available before school as well.

 

Sincerely,

 

 Alisha Wells

Proficiency Grading

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

Welcome to the 4th grade!  We are thrilled to have your students in our classes!  We look forward to having an exciting and knowledge filled year.  This will be our second year working together as a team and are anticipating tremendous success.

 

Throughout the school year we will be sending out classroom newsletters to provide you with specific classroom activities and information.  Within these newsletters we will inform you on field trips, assessments, and any other detailed information that you may need.  These newsletters will be sent home with your student.

 

Parent/Guardian and grandparent volunteers are always welcome to come and help out in the classroom.  Please see the office for background check information.  We would appreciate help with small groups, copying, or any other extra projects we may have.  Core I is our reading core every day from 8:25 to 10:05 am.  During Core II we will be working on our math segment, which will be from 10:20 to 11:50 pm.  If you enjoy coming in and helping out, please contact us to let us know when you are available.

 

We feel that open communication between teachers and parents is key.  The best way to contact each of us would be through email.  Feel free to also contact us by telephone or in person after school.

 

We thank you for your time and look forward to an amazing 2017-2018 school year!

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Cagley, Mrs. Johnson, and Mrs. Pugmire

Proficiency Grading

Dear Parents and Students,

 

            Welcome to 5th grade at CVE! I am excited to begin a new school year and hope that you and your family had a wonderful summer vacation! I am excited for our year in 5th grade! This will be my first year teaching 5th grade and my first year at CVE. This will be my second year teaching, last year I taught 6th grade in Myrtle Point.

 

This year you and I will be working together to help our students as learners. I am strong believer in parent teacher communication as I feel that it positively and directly influences your child’s learning. Our main form of communication this year will be done through Class Dojo. For those of you that have not used Class Dojo before, it is an online classroom management tool that I will be using in the class. The student will receive point for positive behavior and will lose points for negative behavior. You can see these point from home through either an app on you phone, tablet, or logging in on a desktop. Not only will you be able to see your student’s behavior points but you will also be able to communicate with me via messages through the app. I will also be using Google Classroom this year, on Google Classroom you will be able to see some of your student's assignments and announcements related to their assignments. There will also be links to websites that we will be using in class, Front Row and Khan Academy.

 

Lastly, our school uses Journey's HoughtonMifflin reading curriculum and Expression for math curriculum, with these curriculums we use ThinkCentral which is where students are able to complete assignments and test from our curriculum. Please know that I want to help my students and families feel supported, so feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year.

 

I am excited to be starting this year’s journey with your child! I am looking forward to watching them learn, grow, and have a fantastic time in 5th grade

 

Sincerely,

Joe Nichols

Welcome to 5th grade!

My name is Maureen March, and I am very excited to work with you and your students this year!  I want to tell you a little about me, and what you might expect in my classroom.

         I was born and raised in Monmouth/Independence, and then moved to Massachusetts to earn my teaching degree.  I graduated from Boston University in 1999, and moved to Coquille when I was hired by the district to teach first grade (It must be in the DNA, because my grandmother taught at Coquille High School for twenty years).  I have taught first grade, second grade, and a blend of both.  For my nineteenth year I thought I would try something new!  I have seen many changes, and worked in many buildings.  It pleases me to say that teaching second grade at CVE is the best assignment I have had. I count myself lucky to live and work in this community.  I am married to Shawn, an RN at Southern Coos Hospital, and we have two boys in 8th and 6th grades.

         Fifth grade is going to be amazing.  There is much to learn, and I am eager to get to it. The proficiency grading method adopted by the district clearly shows you how your child progresses to meet each Common Core standard.  The Horizons (math) and Journeys (reading) curricula we use align closely with these standards. If you have questions about the work you see coming home, do not hesitate to ask.  I know there is a great deal of information out there about Common Core, and I am happy to share with you how those standards apply to you, your student, and me!

          I will be sending home plenty of information in the coming days about homework, and all of the other “housekeeping” details that keep things running smoothly in Room 13.  If you have any questions, or you would like to volunteer to help in class, please send a note, call the school, or send me an email.  I know we are going to have a great school year!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Families,

 

Welcome to Sixth Grade Math!

 

My name is Jeffrey Palmer and I am the sixth grade math and computer technology teacher. This is my second year at Coquille Valley Elementary. I’ve been fortunate to have taught at a variety of elementary schools and I have also taught a wide range of subject matter.

 

My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California at Davis and my teaching credential/Master’s work was at National University.

 

I hope that with your help we will be able to see growth in your child, both academically and socially this year, as we prepare them for middle school. I have the highest expectations for all my students and to help them succeed I am available, either by email or by phone, if you need to contact me regarding their progress or for any matter that I can provide assistance with.

 

Here’s to a great year in sixth grade!

 

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Palmer

Welcome to Sixth Grade Science and Social Studies!

I am excited to get to spend this year getting to know my students and their families!

 

       Let me tell you a little about me. I was born and raised right here, graduating from Coquille High School. From there, I attended Oregon State University to obtain my Bachelors of Science degrees before returning home to the Coquille Valley. I am currently in the process of obtaining my next level of licensure through Southern Oregon University. Outside of school, I am highly active in the 4-H community and act as a 4-H Leader in livestock and static exhibits.

       We will be using a behavioral management system ClassDojo in operation within our room. This is an online system that allows you as a parent to receive current information on your child and their behaviors in class. It is also one of the fastest methods of communication between myself and home if you need to contact me. If you have not had the chance to sign up, feel free to send me an email and we will get you connected to your student.

        I am excited to be back here at Coquille Valley Elementary teaching and look forward to this journey! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or one of the other members of the 6th grade teaching team.

Starting this year we will be doing proficiency grading.  Last spring Coquille Valley sent home an introduction to this new grading system on our progress reports.  We no longer will be using letter grades.  Proficiency grading is based on a 1 to 4 scale.  Attached is the rubric we will be using to report grades and student success skills.

4=Exceeds Standards The student consistently demonstrates mastery of the grade level standards. With relative ease, the student grasps, applies and extends processes and skills from the grade level. Above grade level standards/expectations.

 

3=Meets Standards The student demonstrates understanding of the grade level standards and can apply concepts in a variety of contexts; meeting grade level standards/expectations.

 

2=Progressing The student is beginning to, and occasionally does, meet grade level standards. The student is beginning to grasp and apply key processes and skills at their grade level, but produces work that contains errors. I approaching achievement of grade level standards/expectations.

 

1=Needs Support The student is not meeting grade level standards and is working one or more years below grade level. Limited achievement of the grade level standards/expectations.

 

*=Not Applicable The standard has not been addressed at this time.

 

Mr. Martin

    My class has expectations for both behavior and academics. In Math, I expect students to know math facts. Calculator use is limited. We are gearing towards a Smarter Balanced state assessment. This state test limits calculator use and focuses more on problem solving through word problems. We do lab experiments in Science so I expect students to know lab safety rules. I require students to pass a lab safety exam before allowing them to participate in lab activities. Your student should not have more than 60 minutes of math or science homework each night. If you are doing more than an hour of homework each night, call or email me. This may indicate something is not going right in class or the level of understanding is not where we would like it to be. However homework is important for success in school. If you have difficulties during homework feel free to call my home (572-1056) and I will walk you through the problem. Due to our 90 minute block of instruction, we will have time to finish most of our class work. What we do not finish should be done at home. If a student neglects to finish their work we may spend some recess time getting caught up. If a student misses school they are responsible for getting what they need to catch up to the rest of the class. If your student begins to spend too much recess time working on expected assignments I will call home and try to form a better plan for finishing required work.

 

    I expect students to behave in a safe, respectful, and responsible manner. If we can’t, I will talk to your student first, then call home, and finally as a last resort refer your student to the office. Those students that are safe, respectful, and responsible; I try to reward with tokens (Golden Eggs or Eagle Wings). Students will have the opportunity to spend these tokens on class privileges or treats. If a student chooses they may enter their token for a chance to win a prize at our PBIS school assemblies.

 

Ms. Byers

Behavior expectations:

 

  • 1. Follow the three school wide rules:

 

    • A. Be Safe- keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself
    • B. Be Respectful- treat others with respect and everyone’s learning environment
    • C. Be Responsible- follow directions the first time and complete your assignments

 

  • 2. Cooperate in class at an appropriate noise level, whether it be independently, partner, or group work.

 

  • 3. Do your best everyday!

Fundraising for the field trip will begin soon.
