  • Game Club/Message from Coronado SAFE: We've been hearing a lot from rising 6th graders that they are nervous to transition into middle school, especially with the circumstances COVID brings. We would like to invite all 5th graders from both public and private schools to join our weekly game club. This will give the opportunity to see both familiar and unfamiliar faces as they have fun, change their routine, learn new ways to use Zoom with friends, and start to feel integrated into the middle school community.

    The Zoom information is listed below:

    Coronado SAFE is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
