Cougar Connect – July 3, 2024

Dear Coolidge PTO Families,

Thank you for making the 2023-24 school year so fun and successful! As we wrap up one year and begin planning for the next, we have a few updates to share with everyone. Please see below.

Happy 4th of July!

Theresa and the Incredible, Hardworking Coolidge PTO Executive Board

Updates from the June PTO Meeting

The June meeting was filled with gratitude. Due to the generosity and hard work of the Coolidge community, the PTO had a fantastic year! We fulfilled Coolidge School’s fall and spring wishlists, hosted two author visits, funded two assembly presentations, added fun new lunch options, hosted community building events, extended our teacher/staff appreciation celebrations, and exceeded our fundraising goals for the year.

As a result of our collective efforts, PTO was excited to provide Coolidge School with additional wishlist funding at the June meeting! A huge accomplishment! Thank you to everyone who took time to serve lunch, attend meetings, chair an event, or make a purchase from our fundraisers. Your support is impactful and very much appreciated!

Another highlight from the meeting was the introduction of the newest PTO board members:

Liz Walker, 1st Vice President

Sammi Eletto, 2nd Vice President – Fundraising

Kristin Schaffner, Secretary

Kelly Harteveld, Economy Shop Co- Chair

Nicole Serkes, Economy Shop Co-Chair

We also expressed our thanks to board members Kristin Borrelli (1st VP), Mrs. Needleman (3rd VP) and Beth Van Emburgh (Economy Shop Chair) as they stepped away from their roles to pursue exciting new adventures!

Thanks to everyone who attended. The next meeting will take place in September. Date and time will be posted in August.


Coolidge Cougar Tales

The PTO is proud to present the first edition of Coolidge Cougar Tales! This literary publication is a celebration of the creative writing process and the diverse voices within Coolidge School. It also serves as a wonderful example of the collaborative relationship between the PTO and Coolidge School. Thank you to the Cougar Tales publication committee, Heather Flanagan, Stefanie Vidaic, and Mrs. Mitas, for their time and dedication to this project. We’d also like to thank Mr. Famularo, Coolidge teachers, staff, and students, for their hard work and willingness to help bring this idea to life.
