     It was a busy week, but a fun one.  I hope everyone stayed warm through the November deep freeze.
    It is a big night tonight for ASE and our Coles giving continues this week with our Thanksgiving Food Drive and Sharing Lunches!
    ASE Registration takes place Sunday night, November 17th at 8 pm.   
    Here is what you need to know:
    • An email will be sent from the JA Coles PTA email at 8 pm.
    • Create a Signup Genius account prior to 8 pm for faster registration.
    • Find a laptop or desktop computer for ease of registration.
    • DO NOT register until AFTER 8 pm.  All registrations are time stamped and your child's name will be removed if you register before 8 pm.
    • Review our class list and figure out which classes your child would like to register for as well as a second or third choice.  Please be mindful of the grade levels.
    Thanksgiving Food Drive

  • Birthday Book Image

    Celebrate your child's birthday with a BIRTHDAY BOOK!

    Consider donating a book to our Coles library in honor of your child's birthday. A book plate will be placed in the front cover stating that the book is for your child.    Mrs. Giannacio will take a picture of him/her holding the book and post it on the Library bulletin board where it will remain until the end of the school year.  Also, your child will get to check the book out first!  

    Check out the Wish List put together by Mrs. Giannacio for you to choose from to celebrate your child's birthday!
