Noon Supervision

Our school’s noon supervision program begins on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021. Students in Grades 1-6 who stay for lunch at school, need to register for noon supervision. You can register your child through MyCBE / PowerSchool.

Assigned Teachers

Students who are currently registered at Dr. E. W. Coffin School can look forward to a welcome email from their assigned teacher on Tuesday August 31, 2021. Our teaching staff for the 2020-2021 school year will be: 

Kindergarten-Mrs. Lisa Wilkens, 

Grade 1/2 - Mrs. Hamby and Mrs. Boyer

Grade 3/4 - Ms. Jones and Ms. Armour

Grade 4/5 - Ms. Cowdy

Grade 5/6 - Mr. Pedenko and Ms. Saunders

Note:  As our projected numbers are high and pre-registrations are low, we may need to make some alternative grade groupings.  We anticipate that the above grade grouping will likely occur unless we have an unusual number of students pre-register in a particular grade.  These grade grouping will be confirmed on August 31st, 2021.
