    As if being together wasn't perfect enough, the weather put the icing on top of the cake!  What a wonderful night at our Welcome Back Social.  
      
    Thanks to Cisco the Magician, Party Maniacs face painters and to our amazing Coles teachers who made our event extra special. 
     
    I am still full from all the delicious food options, including Violante's, The Empanda Guy, Il Forno, Kona Ice, andMohammed's Ice Cream Truck.

    ✔ Set-up and Clean-up
    ✔ Helping students to write their wish lists 
    ✔ Helping to fulfill wish lists 
    (just a reminder - please wait until wish lists come home to send in money for students)

    Lots of opportunities during and after school, which we can't do without some extra hands! Click here to volunteer!
     
    Volunteer for the Coles Media Center
    Calling on all book-lovers and book-lovers' supporters - Volunteer for the Coles Media Center

    The exciting process of book borrowing and exchange is about to begin at the Coles Media Center! The children always look forward to their library day and we all know how important the love of reading is for their development.  

    To make this a pleasant and efficient experience for all, we need volunteers to assist Mrs. Giannacio with checking out books, and organizing and re-shelving books as students return their weekly selections to the library. Please consider giving a few hours a month during the school day; your time will be very much appreciated! And if you love books, this is a most enjoyable volunteer opportunity!

    Please note, that parents are not allowed to volunteer during their child's library time. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Giannacio at sgiannacio@spfk12.org.
