Mrs. Sian and Mr. Young wanted this message to go immediately: We've only had 3 Seniors sign up so far and usually they are here first thing in the morning. All 3 students said they forgot but they saw it in on the website and thought we should do a reminder on social media. So here it is again: 7th Grade Orientation: Monday, August 26, 6pm starting in the Jr/Sr High auditorium - walk through schedules, practice locker combinations, and learn the lunch routine. Senior locker sign up: Monday-Wednesday during Jr/Sr High office hours. SENIORS ONLY; all others will be assigned. Remember, you can always check the District calendar for the school schedule, athletic competitions, community events, and more!
Pictured here is Mrs. Long with Kathy Biskupski, of the Michigan Operations Community Outreach Team. This team is comprised of Dow and former Dow Chemical employees, who have an interest in bettering our communities. Each summer, they fill 20 backpacks with school supplies to donate to children in need. They have given us backpacks for 10 boys and 10 girls, about half more suited to elementary students and half for middle school students (give or take). Each backpack contains crayons and markers or colored pencils, regular or mechanical pencils, a note book, a pocket folder, glue sticks, a ruler, and a pencil box. They have also donated additional notebooks and other school supplies! A big THANK YOU to the Michigan Operations Community Outreach team for this generous donation.
Though we know it’s gonna be hard to fill Mrs. Tipton’s shoes, we’d like to welcome our new Elementary Office Secretary to the Comet Family: Mrs. Nichole Plude!!! Mrs. Plude is originally from Hemlock, but now resides in Beaverton. Before joining us, she worked at the Dow Chemical Company through Kelly Services for 5 years. She was also a preschool teacher and daycare director at Zion Lutheran in Hemlock for almost 7 years. Her and her husband Dan have two daughters, Eloise, who will be 4, Vivian who’s almost 2 and a son, Douglas who is now 3 months old. “For fun, we like to travel,” she said. “We like to go camping a lot and go to different locations, see different sights and just be outside.” Mrs. Plude said seeing the opening for the position and having cousins who live in the area who have nothing but good things to say about Coleman is what brought her here. “I’m really excited about the opportunity, it seems like a really great place and I look forward to getting to know everyone.” And we’re sure you’ll enjoy getting to know her as well. When you see Mrs. Plude in the office or in the halls this Fall, please give her a warm Comet welcome! #cometpride#growingforthefuture#colemancomets#colemanmichigan#education
Are you an Elementary or Jr./Sr. High School student participating in the Summer Take-Home Reading Program? Just a reminder that we are excited to send new books back out to those students so get those postcards back to us and we will send the new books out to you right away.
Mr. Eric Fischer stopped out yesterday to talk a little bit about the new Land Lab. “The oats are just something we threw in here to have a marketable product,” he said. “But in the meantime, hay is probably going to be our best option at this point. Probably too dirty in here with all the weeds right now.” Mr. Fischer, one of our Agriscience teachers, said the eventual goal for our Land Lab Project, which is currently in its first year, is to plant alfalfa. Coleman Schools purchased the 7.16 acre piece of farm land on Shaffer Road in front of the Elementary back in March 2019, shortly before Spring Break. The intent is for it to be used as an Outdoor Land Lab with our K-12 students for their Agriscience/STEM lessons and activities. #cometpride#growingforthefuture#stem#steam#education#colemanmichigan#michigan#farming#agriscience#agriculture
