  • Walk-a-thon--Our 1 and only Coolidge fundraiser is our walk-a-thon!! The walk-a-thon will take place on September 28th! The collection envelopes will be coming home this week, and we will be collecting envelopes September 25th-28th! Look for them in your child's backpack we need everyone's help in making this a great Walk-a-thon!!!

 

  • Friday Early Out--We will have early dismissal each Friday at 2:20.  Please mark your calendar and plan accordingly in your schedule.

 

  • Family Night--A quick heads up for families to add to their calendar that our Family night will be THIS Thursday, September 14th from 5:30-7:00 pm.  The agenda will look similar to last year as it will be a drop in whenever you can during this time period (one doesn’t have to stay for the whole time).  Each teacher AK-5th will be in their classrooms and you can stop in to visit with them, learn some more about our reading series, play a math activity, engage in some technology and learn some more information about how your child's classroom will run. There will not be a formal presentation, nor is this a time for a student conference. If you would like to have a private conversation with a teacher please arrange another time with them.  Let us know if you have questions.

 

  • Power School--Please remember to do your e-registration in PowerSchool.  Updating this information helps us to have a correct phone number to contact families, it also is where you give permission for your child to go on field trips and be in our newsletter.  Please complete as some grade levels have things planned already and it needs to be completed prior to your child going along.

 

  • Coolidge Website--Remember there are lots of sources of information on our website...you can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.  Retweet or share all the Energetic events that are happening here at Coolidge! http://coolidge.cr.k12.ia.us/

Have a Wonderful day--and we look forward to seeing you later this week,

Greg O'Connell
