lion king girl dancers

Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Lion King for sharing their talents and hard work with us this past week. We were all so impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Thank you to Mr. Cosman for his leadership and creativity to get the best out of our students and provide them with such a memorable learning experience. Thank you also to the many, many staff members and parents who volunteered their time to make the show a success! Bravo!

This Memorial Day Weekend, on behalf of the staff of Coolidge School, please join me in recognizing the brave men and women of our armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom and rights. Wishing the Coolidge Community a Happy Memorial Day! Go Cougars! Go USA!
