Donate a Book

What better way to celebrate your graduate’s years at Coolidge than to donate a book to the Coolidge Media Center in his/her honor? Since the Donate a Book form can be found on the Coolidge web site, donations make a great gift idea for out of town family members too!

Use this form to donate a book to the Coolidge Media Center through the Donate a Book Program.  Please fill out the form completely so that the book you donate is dedicated as you wish. The cost of each book donation is $15.00; this ensures that a library-bound, hard cover book will be able to go directly into circulation. Once your child selects a book, a color label with his/her name and an inscription will be fixed inside the cover. The book will be a lasting tribute to your child’s time at Coolidge.

Here is the link to the Donate a Book form.

Great children’s books are published every year but, due to limited finances, the Coolidge Media Center is not able to purchase many of them. Your donation will allow us to make these current titles available and help replace books in poor condition.

We hope you choose to participate in this wonderful program. If you have any questions please contact mfox [at] shrewsbury.k12.ma.us.

Making Tracks for Technology Friday

Making Tracks for Technology is a Walk-A-Thon held during school hours on Friday, June 9th (rain date June 15th) to raise money for purchasing technology for our school. Each grade will walk for approximately 30 minutes on the path leading to Jordan Pond. An information packet and pledge sheet went home in students’ backpacks. We ask that your child ask friends, family and neighbors to sponsor them for this event. There are many fantastic prizes that have been donated by local businesses to award those students who raise the most for Coolidge. We encourage all students to begin asking for donations now.

Here are just a few student projects made possible with the school iPads:
