Welcome to the 1st grade at Coquille Valley Elementary!

Mandy Dark

Dear Friends and Family of Room 24:

 

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,

Ms. Novak

Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Mandy Dark, and I am excited to work with you and your child this year! Here is a little bit of information about myself. This is my second year of teaching first grade. I was born and raised in Silver Lake, Oregon. I graduated from Western Oregon University with my degree in Early Childhood Education and my ESOL (English for Speakers of Second Language) Endorsement.

 

A little information about what you will be receiving from your child. Each night your child will bring home a Take Home folder, and each day it should return to school. On the left they will have their homework and communication from me. This homework will include nightly math homework, spelling words (starting next week), reading booklets (more on that later), and occasional other things. The family communication will include a weekly letter, field trip forms, notes from the office, etc.  On the right side they will have their corrected work from that day. This work can stay home with them and doesn’t need to be returned.

 

I am looking forward to not only getting to know your child, but you as well. If you have a desire to help in the classroom all parents are greatly appreciated. I have attached a form to this letter for you to fill out. If you would like to volunteer you can either write me a note on the bottom of the form, or send me an e-mail.

I am very excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to working with you and your child! It’s going to be a great year!!

 

Mandy Dark

2nd Grade

Welcome to the 2nd grade at Coquille Valley Elementary!

Maureen March

Alisha Wells

Becca Jones

Welcome to 2nd 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.  This is my seventeenth year teaching in Coquille.  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 Coquille Valley Hospital, and we have two boys in 6th and 4th grades.

 

Second grade is 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 Saxon (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 spelling, math homework, field trips, and all of the other “housekeeping” details that keep things running smoothly in Room 19.  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 Friends and Family of Room 21:

 

My name is Alisha Wells and I will have the privilege of being child’s Second Grade Teacher this year. I am excited about beginning this school year and look forward to getting to know your child.  My goal for this year is to prepare each student for the challenges they will face in third grade while keeping an atmosphere that will instill in them a love of learning.

 

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 kindergartener and my youngest is just starting out this year in Pre-K.

 

You will be receiving additional notes this week about math homework, spelling tests, and dictation sentences. Once homework has been completed and turned in, I will not be sending it home. My goal is to reduce the amount of papers your child brings home so that it is easier to find papers that will tell you how your child is doing in class. Since turning in homework responsibly is on the report card, I will send home a sheet that tells you how many pieces of homework your child has returned every two weeks. If you would like to ask me if your child is returning their homework throughout the week, please don’t hesitate to call or send me a note.

I look 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.

Coquille Valley Elementary School’s Open House is on September 15th from 5:00-7:00. I hope to see you there!

 

Sincerely,

 

Alisha Wells

 

 

Dear Friends and Family of Room 23:

 

I would like to welcome you all to the Second 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 “School to Home” 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.  The easiest way for me to stay in touch is through e-mail.  I will also be sending home classroom newsletters once a month 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 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 ninth 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.

 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Jones

Expectations

Dear Families,

 

   I am so excited to begin another wonderful year at Coquille Valley Elementary!  This is my third year at CVE; my second year teaching sixth grade English Language Arts and Social Studies, with Mr. Martin teaching math and science in our block schedule.

 

   We have some great opportunities for our students this year!  I look forward to meeting you and getting to work with your child!  Together we will make the year a success!

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Breanna Byers

 

 

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!

Learn about our new after-school Math & Science club, SMILE!

Fundraising for the field trip will begin soon.

Welcome to Special Education/Resource at Coquille Valley Elementary!

Hi Everyone,

 

My name is Miss Trowbridge, and I am going to be your special education resource teacher this year! This will be my first year teaching at Coquille Valley Elementary School. I will also be teaching at Winter Lakes and Lincoln during the year. I look forward to exploring, learning, and having fun this year with all of you! I have a master’s degree in elementary education with an emphasis in special education. I also have a bachelor's degree in elementary education along with an associate’s degree in early childhood development.

 

I love teaching students of all ages. I love to read and feel that reading is one of the most, if not the most, important subjects a student could learn in school. As a resource teacher, I plan on supporting my students in my classroom as much as I can, but also be a support for parents and other teachers as well. During the year if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me at mtrowbridge@coquille.k12.or.us

 

I am excited to meet everyone and have a great year!

 

Sincerely,

Miss Michelle Trowbridge
