Dear Coleman Families,
Please accept this invitation to join our first Coleman H.S.A Ultimate 50/50 Raffle! There will only be 500 ticketsfor sale. To date we have only sold 45 tickets! This will be the biggest fundraiser of the school year, pending participation. We are hoping to raise close to $25,000.00 for both essential activities and enrichment programs for our school and students. The H.S.A. spends $7,000 a year on assemblies/workshops for the children and would like to continue funding these programs. We also subsidize $6,500 for field trips for all grades. All proceeds to benefit Coleman School. The Coleman H.S.A. is a non-profit organization that needs to raise $22,000.00 a year to operate successfully.vThe money we raisevcontributes to the maintenance of high quality education, weekly communication between parents, teachers and students, and selecting diversified programs and assemblies. This allows each child to experience something new each year.
We hear you! The H.S.A is trying something new this year. In the past, parents have stated that they would prefer to write a check or that the cost of an adult social was too much for one evening. The 50/50 raffle replaces our adult social and is the "BIG" fundraiser of the school year.
To purchase a ticket, print the Ultimate 5050 Order Form and return to the bin marked "50/50" in our school lobby. Please make checks payable to "Coleman H.S.A". We are also offering payment by Credit Card on our website and in person. Please go to www.colemanhsa.com to pay by credit card. There is a 3.00 service charge to process payment by credit card. Your paid ticket(s) will be mailed to you. Please contact Amy Martin @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.

New Kindergarten Registration Process
Kindergarten Placement Process
The sequence of steps for kindergarten placement is being accelerated this year. Following registration, each child's school placement will be determined through a process that seeks to balance enrollment figures across the four elementary schools, taking into consideration the presence of siblings. Families will be notified of their child's school assignment by March 27, 2014.
Dates for parent Orientation and student "Round-Up" have also been moved up. Each elementary will host incoming Kindergarten families on April 2, 2014.
Please save the date. Parents will visit their assigned school for a brief Orientation and the children will attend a "Round-up" session in the Kindergarten classrooms. Information regarding time and place for these events will be included in the March letter.
The elementary principals, along with the Kindergarten teaching staff, will utilize their expertise to establish the most appropriate grouping of students for morning and afternoon placement. To that end, family requests for placement will not be considered. Parents will be notified of their child's class placement on April 12, 2014. Expediting the process in this way should provide families sufficient time to make individual arrangements for childcare or enrichment opportunities if they desire.
Interested families will also be able to register for the Glen Rock Community School's Kindergarten Plus enrichment program at the time of kindergarten registration. Kinderplus Registration Link
