Cold Spring Elementary School’s 2015-16 yearbooks were distributed on Monday, June 13th to all the students who purchased them in advance. Our publisher sent us a few additional yearbooks, so if you did not purchase a yearbook already but would like one, please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org to be sure you get one before we run out. Yearbooks are $16 each, cash or check payment to CS HSA.
If you’d like to join the Yearbook Committee for next year, please contact email@example.com. We are especially looking for volunteers who might like to serve in various coordinator/editor roles.
CB Cares Boomerang Nominees for May
Congratulations to our Boomerang Nominees for May: Cooper Bliss, Brady Colbert, and TJ Harrington. These students were nominated for exemplifying the asset of “Positive Peer Influence” - young person’s best friends model responsible behavior. They are a good influence. They make good choices. TJ Harrington was the student selected to represent Cold Spring for the way in which he exemplifies making good choices and influencing others to do the same. Congratulations to Cooper, Brady, and TJ for being nominated for this month’s Boomerang asset!
Last week at school, we held our annual Boomerang Nominees Celebration Snack Break to recognize and congratulate all 34 of the Cold Spring students who were nominated for Boomerang Awards this year. Congratulations to all our nominees for the year, and thank you to all the parents, teachers, and friends who made these nominations. Recognizing the positive assets our students possess is an important part of encouraging their development.
The Boomerang nominations will be on summer break, but back again in the fall. To learn more about CB Cares programs, including the Boomerang Youth Recognition Awards, visit http://www.cb-cares.org/index.cfm

From the "Nurse"
The Town and Country Players in Buckingham will be putting on a production of "Holes", based on the Newbury- Award winning Young Adult novel by Louis Sacher ... featuring Cold Spring parent and substitute teacher Gary Beck! This family show will open July 15 and run for three weekends until July 30. Here is a synopsis of the show:
Stanley’s family is cursed with bad luck. Unfairly sentenced to months of detention at Camp Green Lake, he and his campmates are forced by the warden to dig holes in order to build character. What they don’t know is that they are digging holes in order to search for a lost treasure hidden somewhere in the camp.
