Last week we hosted our STEAM Night as part of the Connected Parent Series. Thank you to media specialist Mrs. Needleman and technology specialist Mrs. Levine for planning an engaging, fun, and interactive learning experience for our students and their parents. Some of the highlights included the Sphero Bolt Challenge, the Marble Run Challenge, and the Parachute Challenge!
PTO Theme Day takes place this Friday, March 31st. Thank you in advance to all of our parent volunteers. Please note that only parents who are registered to volunteer that day will be admitted into the building. All visitors must present a driver’s license or linked fob in order to sign in at the office and enter the building.
Last week, Kindergarten students enjoyed a special assembly just for them. “Unique Creatures” visited Coolidge School! Students enjoyed learning about and seeing so many different creatures and animals during the assembly.
Our first graders enjoyed a visit to the Wyckoff Public Library to acquire their own library cards. In the afternoon, to further their study of community helpers, 1st graders were treated with a visit from Wyckoff police cars and DPW vehicles. What a great experience for our students to learn firsthand about our community helpers!
Report cards are now available via the Genesis Parent Portal for grades 1-5. Parents may log in to view their child(ren)’s report card. Kindergarten parent/teacher conferences begin this week. Parents are reminded to bring their driver's license with them in order to sign in at the main office.
