Spring Fling, April 6th

Attention Coolidge Family and Friends!  With the recent weather, one might not think Spring is not right around the corner.  The Coolidge PTO would love for you to join together to celebrate Spring at our Annual Spring Fling and Ice Cream Social.  We are excited to announce that our location has changed for this year.  Although it is a little disappointing that we are not holding this event at Coolidge, it was more important to us to be able to include all that wanted to attend.  Due to space constraints, this year we will hold our Spring Fling at Oak.  Keep an eye out Monday for the flyers for this event.  You will receive two flyers, one for the event sign-up and one for raffle basket donations.  Please be sure to look at the theme your child’s class has been assigned.  We look forward to all of you attending this amazing event.  It is a great time to share with family and friends, which also raises a great deal of money for our PTO and the many enrichment activities we can bring to your children. Check out the flyer here!

But First, Share Your “Shelfie”

Community Reading Day held on 3/2/18 was the kick off event to “Read Across America” which is held annually across our country during the month of March. This year the organization that hosts the event, the National Education Association (i.e., NEA) is calling upon educators, parents, families, and supporters of reading to share a “Shelfie”. To participate in the movement we urge you to post on the social media platform of your choice by sharing a childhood book that meant the most to you and/or a photo of your child with his/her favorite book. When you post be sure to add the hashtags #Shelfie #ReadAcrossAmerica and tag Coolidge. (Facebook: @CoolidgeElementarySchool Twitter: @CoolidgeSchool1)
