We have had two events this week that I am so very proud of on behalf of Coolidge:
The first was Difference Day, which happened on Tuesday. It was a day run by students who are part of our A World of Difference program. This event was student run, student initiated, student scheduled, with teacher support. It was a real success, and it was student leadership at its best! This was the first year that we did this at Coolidge, and I am so proud of all of the students who took on leadership roles, as well as all of the student participants, who were wonderfully supportive. Special thanks to Mr. Bernard, who leads this year's World of Difference group. Photos from the event can be found at:
Today, we had Field Day, organized by Mr. Huizenga and Mrs. Schiavo. The kids had a BLAST, were SO well behaved, and will remember this day forever! Photos (All 200 of them! Yikes!) can be seen here:
I am so proud in these moments, when our school comes together and does something special, as it only reinforces the wonderful students and staff we have here. The care teachers have for students is clear, and the investment students have in Coolidge is also evident as well. As the year comes to an end, I am so grateful for our community of learners, teachers, and support. As Coolidge is truly a special place!
