See our PTO reminders and updates below to stay informed. In case you missed Mr. Famularo’s school updates, you can read them here.

Theme Day – Thank you!

Thank you to all of our Theme Day volunteers who worked tirelessly to create a day of fun and exploration for the students at Coolidge! Carefully planned and creatively designed workshops really brought this year’s theme to life. We’re grateful for our incredible Coolidge parent community, the support from Mr. Famularo, and the Coolidge school teachers and staff who helped make this day a success!
