Coolidge staff said goodbye to Mr. Frank, our wonderful daytime lead custodian. He retired last Friday. Mr. Frank made great connections with our staff and students. He was always there to help everyone and made all of us smile. His positive energy will be greatly missed. Best of luck in retirement, Mr. Frank! #158Strong #CoolidgeCares

Coolidge recently piloted kindergarten assessments onsite! The teachers gained information about what skills each individual child has mastered. This data will be shared with parents on the first quarter report card this week and used to guide their instruction during the second quarter. #CoolidgeCares

Need a book to read at home? The Coolidge Outdoor Library is now open! Stop by between 8:15 and 3:15 and borrow a book or two. When you finish the books, bring them back and take more. We know our Coolidge students have learned about trustworthiness, so there is no need to check it out. We trust you to bring it back when you are finished. Happy Reading! #CoolidgeCares

Please join us today (Wednesday, May 13) at Coolidge, Oak Glen, and Reavis 9:00-11:00 AM or Memorial 9:00 AM-3:00 PM (sixth grade) if you haven't had a chance to do so. Memorial's graduates have also been taking pictures in their caps and gowns, which are being provided free this year because of the pandemic. Look for an announcement soon about our #MightyMustangs Graduation - we are incredibly proud of our eighth graders! This may not be how any of us pictured ending the year but we're having fun, staying safe, and celebrating the end of the year together. Parents, thank you for your partnership during this unprecedented time. #CoolidgeCares #OakGlenGrizzlies #RoadrunnerPride
