Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation Grant Awards
On Monday, August 25, the Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation awarded 32 grants valued at $17,400 to benefit students in the Coos Bay Schools. Awards benefitted all the schools in the district and the Maslow Project for homeless youth, focusing on academics, arts, athletics, and activities.
Awards included funding for a robotics program at the middle schools, expansion of the music programs at the elementary schools, computer equipment for the high school library, and a number of grants focused on elementary school literacy.
The Foundation received a record number of requests this year, reviewing 66 applications. “We were overwhelmed by the needs of Coos Bay teachers this year,” explains Jennifer Groth, Foundation President. “The community does an excellent job of supporting our students and teachers, but we must continue to make sure our children have what they need to succeed in school.”
People interested in learning more about the Foundation or supporting our efforts can view our facebook page or website: www.coosbayschoolsfoundation.org.
The Coos Bay Schools Foundation was formed in 2007 to promote programs in academics, activities, athletics and the arts to benefit the students of the Coos Bay School District by raising funds through community partnerships.
Coos Bay School’s Building Configuration Options Survey #3
The Coos Bay School District has long shared with the community the rapidly aging condition of their facilities as well their ideas for providing 21st Century learning environments for your children and grandchildren.
The Board asks that you take part in this third survey in our continuing work of Phase 1 to create a long-range (3-5 years) facility plan. We need input on two building configuration options that were recommended by the Coos Bay Schools Facilities Outreach Committee and are based on community input from previous surveys. We are looking for further clarification on whether our current configuration has community support, or if not, which of the two options the community would support.
Here is the link to the survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cbschoolssurvey3 . The survey will be open until August 22nd. The survey contains seven questions. We appreciate you taking a few moments to answer the questions.
Survey results will be reviewed at the September 15th School Board Meeting. The meeting starts at 6:00 PM and will be held at Milner Crest Education Center located at 1255 Hemlock Ave. (north of Mingus Park off N. 10th St.). We want you to be involved in this important discussion. We cannot do this without our parents, staff and community. We will not do this without our parents, staff and community.
