I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend. I am so appreciative of the support of our Coolidge Community and of our mutual goal of achieving social, emotional, and academic growth for our students.
Our Student Council Executive Board helped plan and lead our School-wide meeting on Wednesday! They introduced themselves, talked about the coat drive, and led us in a fun game of This or That: Thanksgiving Edition. Go Cougars!
The first marking period ends on Wednesday, 12/7. Report cards are available for parents in grades 1-5 via the Genesis Parent Portal on Friday, 12/16.
STUDENT COUNCIL COAT DRIVE
Looking to help others this holiday season? Coolidge Student Council will be partnering with One Warm Coat to host a Holiday Coat Drive! Families are encouraged to donate gently used coats to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Paterson. There is a large need for children's coats, but coats of all sizes will be accepted. The drive will be held from November 21st- 30th, students should bring the coats to school and drop them in the collection bin near the front entrance.
WORLD LANGUAGES UPDATE
As you are aware, all students in grades K-5 receive a full period of Spanish instruction every other week for the entire school year. Here is an update from our Kindergarten grade level. Kindergarten has had a wonderful start in Spanish this year! We are loving learning our different songs like our greeting song, colors, and now numbers too. Children are also enjoying all of our different games, activities, crafts, and books while learning colors in Spanish. For the next couple of weeks, we will be diving into counting in Spanish!
COOLIDGE SUPPORTS THE RAMAPO H.S. HOLIDAY FESTIVAL
Coolidge School is supporting the Ramapo High School Holiday Festival by collecting new winter gloves, mittens, and socks. These items will be given to elementary school children from the Paterson Public Schools when they visit Ramapo High School in early December. A collection box has been placed in the Coolidge front foyer. Donations will be accepted until December 2nd. Please consider giving to spread some holiday cheer!
