There is important information for the 2022-2023 school years in the letter included with the calendars so please take a few minutes to read through that. The calendars can be found on our school website www.colemanschools.net or at the following link: https://5il.co/1czid . All calendars will also be shared by email to the parents of Coleman students. Feel free to share the link with others who may not have received it. We greatly appreciate the respectful collaboration between the CEA (Teachers' Association) and Board/Administration to approve the next 3-year teacher association contract along with these calendars.

This August 2nd, 2022, an Operating Millage will be on the election ballot for voters of Coleman School District. The Absentee ballots for this August 2nd ballot will be available July 18th to military and those overseas and July 23rd to the general public. We would like to inform our community of a few important points regarding this millage election: This is NOT a bond, but for operational purposes. EVERY school district in the State is required to bring Operating Millages to a vote of the public in various years. This is a RENEWAL, NOT AN INCREASE for taxpayers. This is a NON-HOMESTEAD renewal and will not impact primary residences. Please read through the attached flier and feel free to ask us any questions you may have! Have a great rest of your day!

This Friday, June 3rd, come out and celebrate our Girls and Boys going to States in Track and Field! You can park in the Student Lot at the high school about 3:00 p.m.; please do not park in the Staff Lot as buses still need to get out. The caravan of our kids going to States will leave at about 3:10 p.m. You can cheer them on at the high school or as they travel through town in Coleman on their way to Grand Rapids. Congratulations and Good Luck! #GoComets!
Many of our Comets past and present helped Ms. Zylman out this weekend with the United By Sacrifice concert! They put in about 12 hours of hard work working gates, helping the Historical Society sell water, setting up, tearing down and checking on all of our other volunteers to make sure they were OK. Mr. Burkhart supported us by organizing the trash and can pick up with all proceeds for returnables going toward the school band. The Ag kids all helped set up all of the fencing on Friday morning. The Boy Scouts planted our flowers and the 8th graders brought in porch pots to make it look beautiful for Memorial Day. It was a hard day and probably the busiest the event has ever been. And they all want to come back and do it again next year! Thank you so much for all your hard work!
Information about summer school will be mailed out tomorrow. Have a great rest of your Tuesday!

Seniors Carter Brownlee and AJ Simon stopped by Mrs. Brownlee's 3rd grade class on Wednesday to answer some questions about their after-graduation plans. Carter explained why he chose to get a welding certification and enter the workforce right after high school. AJ spoke about his decision to be in the 5th-year program and about how Dual Enrollment classes helped him earn credits for college. The kids really enjoyed asking questions about welding and AJ's future major at MSU, Crop & Soil Sciences. Thank you Carter and AJ for stopping by!

Planning on attending games at Montabella tonight? Due to ongoing construction on their campus, the school has released a map to help spectators find where to park tonight. Spectators can enter either at the yellow or blue star. If they enter at the yellow star, they can park in any yellow area. If they want to park in the blue areas, they enter at the blue star and drive straight back (following the blue arrows) and can park in any blue shaded areas. There is one area (red rectangle with white "X") that is part of the construction area. Please do not drive through this area to access parking and do not park in that area. All parking is accessible without driving through construction areas. Also please note that dogs are not allowed on Montabella campus, unless it is a service dog.
