         The Principal's Update and Coleman Connect 
Date: Monday, September 4, 2023

Message from the Principal


Happy Labor Day!  Thank you for a successful Back-to-School-Night (BTSN).  If you have any questions following BTSN, please don't hesitate to contact your teachers through the "Message" function in Parent Square or via email.  Over the next month, teachers will begin to collect data to review with you during the week of October 9th for Family-Teacher Week.  Teachers will have a better understanding of your student and their learning profile during your scheduled conference.

Coleman's interim Principal Mimi Melodia's first day back to school at Coleman (she is an alumna of Coleman) is tomorrow, Tuesday, September 5th.  If you have questions for Ms. Melodia, please don't hesitate to stop by or email her at  I look forward to seeing you all in 4-6 weeks.
