Comet Chronicle, Jr.
May 14, 2021
In April, students used the climbing wall in the CES gym. We also worked on different types of jumping. In May, kindergarten and first grade students will learn to use a parachute for fun games. Students will experience relays while holding different resources. Second and third grade students will learn new team building games involving throwing and kicking. We will review the proper steps to throwing, catching, and kicking.
Students are allowed to bring a water bottle and utilize the new water bottle fill stations. No sandals for class. Please help your child pack shoes for physical education class.
Art Room Update
As we come closer to the end of the year all the Art classes at Coloma El. are working on 3-D sculptures. 3rd grade is continuing their dragon eye theme by making a dragon eye magnet using Crayola Model Magic with custom blended colors. 1st and 2nd grade are learning to sculpt faces by making finger puppets and then using watercolor to finish them. Kindergarten is creating a turtle with a textured shell. Keep a lookout for these awesome projects coming home soon!

Reading At Home
Dropping Off and Picking Up Reminder
- Pull all the way forward so that we can unload/load as many students as possible. This will make the process more smooth and efficient.
- Do not attempt to make a left turn into the car rider lane. Traffic is often backed up down S. West St. for drivers making a righthand turn into the lane. Instead, join the back of the line and make the righthand turn.
A safe and smooth process is our priority. Thank you for your support!
Late Start Wednesday
24 Hour Rule
- Come ready to learn
- Always responsible
- Exceptionally safe
Expectations for the hallway, bathrooms, cafeteria, playground, arrival, and dismissal are posted throughout the school. We teach the expectations and review them throughout the school year. Students also earn CARE tickets when they follow the expectations. The office does a ticket drawing where students pick a prize from the CARE Box.
