Welcome to Coles PTA NewsOur Prek - 1 grade students got "Hooked on Books"The PTA hosted a special assembly for the littlest members of our Coles community this week, "Hooked on Books". Who wins the epic battle between TV and reading? Mild-mannered Mr. Jones sits down one day to enjoy a television program when he is interrupted by a public service announcement that makes him aware of this important question. He learns how reading is an exciting way to gain new skills, see new places, meet new people, and experience more channels than any TV could ever have! And our amazing teachers, Mrs. Jackson and Ms. Yendrick, even got in on the fun.That's a Wrap on the 4th Grade Kickball gameEven though Field Day was touch and go for a little while due to the changing weather, the 4th graders were SO EXCITED to finally be able to play in their final kickball game against the teachers this past week. Although the teachers scored more runs, each and every kid had a smile on their faces while they played, cheered each other on and showed amazing team spirit. Thank you to Mr. Hernandez for all that you do for the children's Field Day experience.Pretzel Sale StatusWhat a turn out for our final pretzel sale of the school year! We haven't been selling as much volume the past two sales so we didn't order as many this time, but WOW, we sold almost 100 more pretzels than our last two sales! AMAZING support Coles for a delicious fundraiser.... Thank you to those who participated. See you again in the Fall!4th grade Spring Concert -- For 4th grade families only.The concert is on Monday, June 10th @7pm Terrill Middle School Auditorium.

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 books from the Wish List put together by Mrs. Giannacio (Check back frequently as this list is updated often). Click here for the wishlist. Send the book in to the library with your child. Please note that hard cover books are the most durable with constant library usage and will last so much longer than soft cover books; therefore they are our library's preferred donation. Please contact Jessica George with any questions.
