paw  CODING AT COOLIDGE SCHOOL

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. This year we have already started our celebration, however, the actual week will be December 9-15, 2019. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper who was born December 9, 1906. Taking part in the Hour of Code is just a small piece of what we do here at Coolidge in recognition of the importance of coding.  Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity.  By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. Over the next two weeks, Ms. Levine plans on meeting with every child in the school and continue to stress the importance and fun in learning to code.

paw COOLIDGE 5TH GRADERS TO PERFORM AT THE GARDEN STATE PLAZA- THIS THURSDAY 5PM

On December 12th a Coolidge tradition will continue as fifth-grade chorus students perform at the Garden State Plaza. Each year around the holidays, the 5th grade Winter Chorus members travel to the Garden State Plaza to sing some songs from their Winter Chorus Concert. In between those songs, we showcase the wonderful talent we have at Coolidge by giving students an opportunity to sing a solo or duet. This part of the performance is open to any 5th grader that would like to take a risk and share their beautiful voices to spread holiday cheer. We are so proud of our students for their efforts!

The performance space is located on the upper level of the mall, Macy's Court, adjacent to the Santa set-up. The best places to park are either in the lots adjacent to the entrance closest to Shake Shack, or the entrance closest to Bar Louie.

paw  FALL SPEEDBALL INTRAMURALS COME TO A CLOSE (4TH/5TH GRADE)

Our fall intramural season has come to a close at Coolidge School. The Fall Speedball Championship was an overtime thriller! Teams 3 and 5 demonstrated perseverance, sportsmanship, and teamwork during the entire game. Congratulations to all seven teams for their efforts and to our Physical Education teacher Ms. Paton for organizing a successful season. 

paw DECEMBER SCHOOL WIDE MEETING

Our December School-Wide Meeting focused on helping students think about ways they can make the world a better place. Especially important during the holiday season, students were reminded that they have the power to give a gift to others every day. Additionally, a few fifth-grade students provided a sneak peek into their holiday mall concert by singing some favorite holiday tunes for the student body. As always, we celebrated our School-Wide meeting as a school community by wearing Coolidge Spirit Wear or our school colors of blue and yellow. Go Cougars!

paw STUDENT COUNCIL COMMUNITY SERVICE

The importance of community service and giving to others was demonstrated through a successful Student Council Food Drive benefiting Social Services of Ridgewood. Student Council members organized and promoted this food drive throughout Coolidge School and were responsible for collecting and packing the various food items for pickup by Social Services.
