    Lots of great things happening the last two weeks of January and the beginning of February - lots of ways to give back or give to those you love!
     
    A Special Surprise for our Staff and Teachers
    We kicked off last week with a special surprise for our AMAZING Coles teachers and staff!
     
    The PTA organized the installation of this beautiful signage DONATED by Insta Yard Grams!  (You can follow them on Facebook or Instagram!)
     
    This sweet company worked with us to make sure that the signage was up for today and the next few days to show our teachers and staff some extra love as we continue to transition back into hybrid learning this week.


     
    Something Sweet for Your Special Someones!
    Looking for a little something different to give those you love on Valentine's Day? 
    Looking to show gratitude to a neighbor or a friend?  
     
    Celebrate with a Cookie-Gram for $3.00 per cookie!  The PTA will provide you pre-wrapped and labeled cookies delivered to your doorstep on February 12th!  Cookies will be purchased from The Swiss Pastry Shoppe in Scotch Plains.  You can deliver the surprise and make someone's day!
     
    Show love to those you love and support a local small business and the Coles PTA.
     
    We will take orders until January 29th on MobileArq.

    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!
