paw COOLIDGE KINDNESS CHALLENGE 

This month Coolidge School will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge!  The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative that is aimed at improving school climate and increasing school engagement.  We are always looking for ways to continue to build connections in our community at Coolidge School. This challenge takes place for 1 week (Jan 27-31) however, we will be extending this all month long.  This challenge includes some easy and fun activities that we will work on with all of our students. This event is a global challenge...13 million students, 24 thousand schools, over 110 countries. 

During Friday's Schoolwide meeting, Mrs. Mapes explained the Challenge and engaged students in an initial activity where they were paired up with a "buddy" from another grade level. Through this activity, students were provided the opportunity to talk with a student that they may not have known or spoken to before. This served as a wonderful chance to build our community at Coolidge!

paw SENSORY PATH AT COOLIDGE SCHOOL

Thanks to funding from the Wyckoff Education Foundation, Coolidge School recently purchased and installed a sensory path of stickers in our front hallway. Students are regularly seen jumping on logs, stepping over stones, playing hopscotch, or marching over ants when they walk through the front hallway at Coolidge. This experience provides a safe, fun, and much-needed opportunity for students to get some exercise or to take a break.
