Second graders engaged in a STEAM activity

Parents are often looking for ways to support reading and math routines at home. This presentation, created by reading specialist Mrs. Zivkovich and math interventionist Melissa Mendes, will provide practical information on how you can support and promote both reading and math development at home. 

Parents are encouraged to visit which includes a “Parent Tips and FAQs” section to help navigate topics such as cell phone use, social media, Internet safety, and screen time for students. Our continued partnership will be important in these areas. 


Fifth-grade students in Media are working on their Creator Idol projects. They are researching an important creator using books and websites and all of the strategies that they have learned in class. Next, they will learn how to make interesting presentations using well-written scripts and eye-catching slide shows. In May the students will present and classes will vote for their favorite Creator Idol. It's always lots of fun!

Third and fourth-grade students will be voting for Bank Street College's Cook Prize, which goes to the best STEM children's book. They will analyze the three nominees for the prize and debate which one is the most deserving. Then they will get the chance to vote and explain their choices. They love that their votes actually count!


During the month of March, Coolidge students are spreading smiles! The Coolidge Student Council is partnering with the organization, Color a Smile, which sends cheerful coloring pages to those in need of a smile, such as senior citizens or troops overseas. This New Jersey-based organization has sent over 2 million drawings! Coolidge Students can find the coloring pages on the bulletin board next to the main office. They can choose which picture they like and color it in. When they are done, they can turn it in on the folder attached to the same bulletin board. These will be due by March 31st. Let’s spread some smiles this March, Go Cougars!


Coolidge School instructional coach Ms. Vyas recently co-authored two books titled Read Alouds with Heart (one geared towards K-2 and the other 3-5). We are so proud of her work on these publications that will be available through Scholastic beginning March 15th. Check out these books as a resource for you with your children.

The after-school intramural program allows fourth and fifth-grade students to collaborate in a team setting with a variety of activities. The program values positive sportsmanship, team camaraderie, and the ability to be active with peers. The game “Tchoukball” was played in session one and the game “Pillow Polo” was played in session two. We have had a strong turnout of 5th-grade students so far this year. A session for 4th graders is being planned for the spring.


As part of the Wyckoff Connected Parent Series, join Jodi Levine, technology specialist, Sue Needleman, media specialist, and Coolidge teachers in the Coolidge MPR as families explore a variety of STEAM activities and challenges. Families will participate in the design process while making Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math fun for all!
