A Message From Mrs. Collyer
Coolidge Math Month "Math is Cool"
Math Month is upon us! Throughout the month of February, children are being encouraged to practice their fact fluency and math skills. Each week, students will learn a new math game at school. Students will bring a hard copy of the game home each Friday. They are encouraged to teach it to their family and play it at least once at home throughout the week. Playing multiple times will only strengthen their math concepts. Materials such as dice will be sent home with your child. Please keep track of the materials and return them to school at the end of February. Teachers will be planning some fun and educational math activities each week as well. Thank you for supporting the learning that is taking place in school.
Enjoy Math Month!

Cold Weather Recess Gear
Please remind your children that warm clothing is needed for school as they will be going outside for recess for any temperature that is above 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure students wear winter coats, gloves, hats, and winter boots when necessary. We highly encourage your student having these items (maybe a change of clothes) as we do not make calls home for wet clothes.
Food Service / Food and Nutrition Services
We believe that children who learn to make healthy food choices and be physically active at school will continue these habits into adulthood. Livonia Food and Nutrition Services is constantly striving to follow all Federal guidelines pertaining to child nutrition while providing food that appeals to our students.

COOLIDGE DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES
Drop off and pick up are stressful times in our parking lot. Please drive slowly, be patient and obey the following procedures at all times. Our children’s safety is most important during these times.
The Parking lot / Parent Walk Up- The parking lot can be used for drop off or pick up. Your car should be parked in a parking spot and you will need to utilize the crosswalk to walk your child to and from the school doors.
Your child should NEVER be in the parking lot without you at their side. The ONLY place that parking or sitting is permitted, is in a designated parking space. Parking anywhere else could prevent our buses from coming or going.
Crosswalks - We have three crosswalks in the parking lot. Please come to a complete stop at each one and use them to cross when walking across the lot.
LOOP -PARENT PICK-UP
The Loop (Recommended) – The loop can be used for drop off or pick up. Students should remain in their cars until the car has come to a complete stop in the painted half circle area. Please do not let your child out of the car, or wave your child to your car, while you are in any other part of the loop area or driveway. Do not leave the loop area until the vehicle in front of you has left.
When using the loop this school year we ask that you place a sign in your car with your last name. Please place the sign in the passenger's side window. One of our staff members will greet you by the opening of the loop. They will then let your child know which numbered spot you will be meeting them at.
