This week with Mrs. Lagalo, students in kindergarten through third grade learned a calm down technique called "teddy bear breaths" or "buddy breaths". They had to lay on the floor, place a bear on their stomach, and watch the bear go up and down with their deep breaths. Some of the students pretended they were rocking their bears to sleep. They all did a great job!
A message will go out by noon Thursday (today) letting everyone know if there will be voluntary sports practices and team pictures today. There will NOT be practices/ meetings for other extra-curriculars. Thank you.
Coleman Schools will be closed Thursday, January 26th, due to overnight freezing of the secondary roads, especially those leading in and out of Isabella County. Please be safe today and stay warm!

We were treated with three Pledge Leaders at tonight’s board meeting, since one of them could not make it last week! Thank you to Bella, Faith, and Mika for doing a great job with the pledge, and making our Board smile during Board of Education recognition month! And thank you to our Board for their commitment and support of our school — we so appreciate everything you do!
Busses are running about 15 minutes behind due to getting a late start at the high school. They are all en route. Thank you!
Ms. McDonald/ Mrs. Allen's 2nd grade class is learning about how to express characters' thoughts and feelings in their writing lessons. For today's lesson, Mrs. Lagalo was so kind as to come in and do a Social-Emotional Learning lesson with us! She started by reading “Pete’s a Pizza,” then led an activity where they had to tell their classmates whether or not they liked pizza by the inflection in their voice when they said the word “pizza.” After that, they got to make their own paper plate pizzas! Our 2nd grade class is hoping to have Mrs. Lagalo back in the room for more lessons!
Today is Technology/ Communications Recognition Day! We have some great people with strong skills in this area. They keep us in the latest technology to benefit students and staff, seem to love a new challenge and bring us fresh ideas. They advertise information daily that is sent to them by staff about what we do with students and get the word out to the community. They keep us organized and updated on what events are coming next and have a creative side. Thank you to Jim Burkhart, Brian Cone and Shane Gross. Thank you to our Student Technology Staff- Zach MacPhee, Gabrielle Crowl for all you do in the Technology realm. Thank you to Laurie Bell and Natalie Rogers for taking care of most of our online presence through the website and social media as well as ensuring the community can use our electronic signage to learn about events. If you have a few minutes today, stop some of these people and say thank you, give them a small token of appreciation or just a pat on the back. And no, we did not make them post their own recognition message- that's why it's not nearly as eye-catching as most ;o)
Chippewa Nature Center brought our 2nd graders a very fun lesson on Tuesday! They learned about the life cycle of pine trees, and got to explore the Agriscience program's greenhouse. Then, they enjoyed playing a game to learn about the resources that plants need to grow! One group was a resource and the other group were plants. If the plant couldn't get the resource it needed, they had to "die"; the children really enjoyed acting it out by falling dramatically on the ground!
More sportsmanship posters by our 4th graders!
The 4th grade students recently had a Social-Emotional Learning lesson with Mrs. Lagalo on sportsmanship. They each crafted their own poster on how to be a good sport. The posters were hung in the gym and around the school as motivation for all of the students. Great job, 4th grade!

Tonight’s Pledge Leader at the Board of Education Meeting: Braxton Wilson! Braxton was accompanied tonight by his siblings, Landon and Addison. Thanks for saying the Pledge so nicely and loudly for us!
A story shared by Mrs. Young: I recently entered to win reading buddies for each of my students, and a $200 gift card to put towards my class library. I had to write about how reading buddies can be beneficial to our students, and how we could use them in our district. I just returned back to my classroom to 2 huge boxes FILLED with teddy bears! Turns out, I won! Each of my students will receive a reading buddy, and the rest will be donated. I also get to shop for $200 worth of new books to help diversify my library. I plan on using it for social emotional stories to use with my kiddos :) Congrats on your big win, Mrs. Young!
