Celebrating some Super Comets spending time in the Super Comet chair! Congratulations, Super Comets Adyson, Kyler, Ashlynn, Brook and Autumn!
Mrs. Robbins' fifth grade students are beginning a unit on colonial America today. To give them some idea of the effort it took to churn butter, she had her students make butter in a jar today. No actual churning but lots of shaking took place!
When you come into the 3rd grade wing, you may notice lots of feet moving and dancing. Mrs. Howdyshell’s class has been chosen to be part of the UNICEF Kid Power Movement that started March 1st .
Mrs. Howdyshell’s class was one of the millions of classes picked across the United States to take part in the UNICEF Kid Power challenge. Each student receives a kid power band that tracks steps and heartbeat, power points earned, and serves as a watch. As students move and groove, steps and heartrate acceleration are tracked. With every step, they draw closer to earning classroom power points. For every 10 power points, one therapeutic food packet is earned. Therapeutic food packets are protein-based food sent to children in different parts of Africa suffering from malnutrition.
Coleman Elementary kicked off reading month with a visit from Senator Stamas! The Senator came to read a story with our kindergarten through third grade students. Thank you, Senator Stamas, for your time and the coloring books and book marks! We enjoyed your visit.
It's been another great week of celebrating our respectful and responsible Super Comets with their ready to succeed behavior! This past week, Austin, Hannah and Emily enjoyed some time in the chair of honor! Congratulations, Super Comets! We are proud of you!
The Coleman Lions Club hosted a Peace Poster contest this fall with the theme “Celebrating Peace.” The contest is a local portion of the contest held through Lions Clubs International, open to youth ages 11 – 13 around the world. Coleman Community Schools art teacher Lane Dexter helped by involving his sixth and seventh grade art students. This year’s winner is sixth grader Savanah Doke who received a check for $50. The two runners up, seventh grader Jayden Bovee and sixth grader Brayden Servis, each received $25. The three students and their families were invited to a dinner meeting and award ceremony on Nov. 7. Savanah’s poster will be entered in the district contest later in November, and if it wins will go on to the state Lions Club contest.
We love our parent volunteers! A shout out today to Megan Andrews! She helped Mrs. Brownlee's class decorate a wreath to be entered in the wreath decorating contest sponsored by the Coleman Business Association. All the wreaths will be displayed prior to the parade on December 10th at 6pm. You can vote for your favorite wreath after the parade. If that isn't enough, the wreaths will then be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the fireworks display fund.
Our latest Super Comets that have earned twenty Comet cash for respectful, responsible and ready to succeed behavior. Shout out goes to Maddie, Zach, Alexis, Lexx and Kierra! Congratulations. Keep up the super behaviors!
