Parent Career Information - Please fill out so we can engage with you!

As 2022 begins, we would like to ask all parents to fill out this survey to gather information on your career for a possible future opportunity to engage our parents/guardians in programming (i.e. guest speaker, small group presentation, etc).

When guest speakers visit a classroom, students listen to a presentation to learn about the speaker’s career, business and industry, and ask questions to help them consider whether they might like to pursue a career path in the industry. Often our speakers relate to our current PBL units, but we hope to expand this to a career fair-type event.

Designed to meet specific learning objectives, guest speaker presentations are linked to the curriculum and help students connect what they’re learning in school with the workplace. Presentations are usually conducted at the school, but in some cases, guest speakers may “visit” a classroom electronically via Zoom or some other format.

Our Proactive Plan

You received district communication this week recommitting our commitment to in-person instruction. However, in the event that there is a need to temporarily pivot to digital learning, we want to be certain that each student has access. Our teachers and students are ready IF we need to make this change.

In the event we temporarily transition to digital learning, Coleman Middle will implement our typical digital learning day plan and schedule.

As a reminder:

Teachers will post a lesson for students to complete in Google Classroom - Humanities, Math, Science, and Connections. Students may log on at any time during the day to complete the lessons posted in Google Classroom; live instruction will not take place.

Teachers will be available via Zoom (Zoom link found on every teacher's eCLASS page) at the following times to answer questions:

6th grade - 10:15 - 10:45

7th grade - 11:00 - 11:30

8th grade - 12:30 - 1:00

Connections - 1:15 - 1:45

Beginning yesterday (1/6), homeroom teachers surveyed students to determine if a device would be needed for digital learning. Teachers will survey students again today. Further, teachers will explain the procedure to students.

Starting today(1/7) afternoon, in order to be PROACTIVE, students who need a device will bring a device home. This device is the SAME device your student is assigned in class. Therefore, these devices MUST return to school each day fully charged. If your child doesn’t return the device to school, then your child will not have a device to use during the school day as no extra devices will be available.

As a reminder, students and families will be responsible for lost or damaged devices.

Attention 6th grade parents!

All 7th grade students are required to receive one dose of Tdap and one dose of MCV4 vaccines.

The law requires that a current certificate be submitted to school verifying that the student has received both of these vaccines before they enter 7th grade.

Please check with your health care provider if your student’s immunization certificate is up to date.

You can also contact Coleman’s school clinic at 678-407-7410.
