The Coolidge PTO is an organization of parents, teachers, and staff of Calvin Coolidge Elementary School committed to enhancing the educational, cultural, and social atmosphere of the school. Each year, the PTO raises funds to provide supplemental academic materials, educational enrichment programs, social programs, staff appreciation, field trip buses and other items not covered by the school budget. We are also known as C.A.P.E., the Coolidge Association of Parents and Educators.
The PTO has paid for, or contributed to, the field trip buses to Plimoth Plantation, the American Textile Museum in Lowell, and the Town Centre of Shrewsbury; playground equipment repair; visits from author Jane Sutcliffe, author April Jones Prince, an Artemus Ward performer, Wingmasters, a beekeeper and others; as well as the 4th Grade Completion Ceremony.
The PTO also runs or assists with the following community events and academic initiatives: Reading Incentive Program and Ceremony, McGowan Grant, Snowflake Festival, Field Day, Gingerbread Shop, PTO Breakfast, Coolidge with the Worcester Bravehearts, Spring Fling ice cream and raffles, and Teacher Appreciation event.
