Dear Coolidge Families,

Picture of Mr. O'Connell

Welcome to Coolidge Elementary School! Our highly qualified dedicated staff works cooperatively with students and parents toward the goal of developing high academic achievement and responsible citizenship. Heavy emphasis is placed on teaching basic skills in Reading, Math and Written Language. Our staff promotes the development of positive self-concepts, effective problem solving skills, and respect for each other through our "P.A.R.R.T" Curriculum. Personal Best; Active Listening; Respect; Responsibility; & Trustworthiness; are traits we work on daily with our students.

To continue the tradition of excellence that is being built at Coolidge School, your support is needed. Every parent's challenge with today's hectic life pace is to share as a partner in their child's education. We look forward to working with each of you this coming school year.

The Coolidge PTA is a wonderful organization that offers support to our school and children in countless ways. Please consider getting involved this year if you haven't already. Teachers additionally welcome parent volunteers in our classrooms throughout the school day. Please speak with teachers directly or contact one of our Volunteer Coordinators if you want to help out. We together can make the greatest difference. I welcome your questions and input. Please feel free to call or stop in at any time.

Greg O'Connell, Principal
