December PTO Meeting

Our next meeting will take place on December 6th at 2:15pm, at Coolidge in the MPR. 

Immediately following the Principals Report, Mr. Cosman and Ms. Pennino will provide us with a  Promethean Board demonstration. This is a great opportunity for us, as PTO members, to see how our fundraising efforts benefit the Coolidge School Community.

Please be sure to attend!


A Word About Meetings...

I would like to remind everyone of a few important guidelines to ensure that our meetings are productive and respectful.

First, questions about current agenda items are welcomed but should be held until the Q&A portion of the meeting. This takes place after the Mr. Famularo's report. 

Second, I would like to maintain a positive meeting environment for all of our members. Please refrain from making comments that can be perceived as offensive to others. All opinions matter, but should be expressed respectfully.  


Economy Shop

The Economy Shop is always in need of volunteers! Volunteer during a Coolidge week or an All Schools week. It’s a 2 hour shift where you’ll meet new people, find cool stuff, and help our school raise funds! Sign up here ! Questions? Contact Ashley @ 607-280-2054.
