Lakeland Band to Perform Winter Concert at CHS
Lakeland 5th Grade band students performed their winter concert on Thursday, December 12 at Coldwater High School. It was exciting to hear how much progress students have made on their instruments! They have been working so hard, and it was a great opportunity to showcase their progress at the Winter Concert. A huge thank you to Mrs. Jewell, our 5th Grade band director, for all her extra efforts getting the kids ready for this performance.
Kiwanis Awards Lakeland 4th Grade with Books
On November 20, the Kiwanis Club of Coldwater visited our 4th Grade classrooms to award students for meeting their goal in their character-education program known as Kiwanis Terrific Kids. Participants learn the Terrific Kids character traits and how to set goals. The goals usually involve one academic goal and one behavior goal. After the students have met their goals, the Kiwanis Club comes to the classroom with a cart full of books and flashcards from which they can choose.
Coldwater Elementary Boosters Penny Challenge
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Coldwater Elementary Boosters penny challenge the first week of December. As a building we were able to raise $1,146.16 for the boosters. This helps pay for our field trip transportation, March is Reading Month, Assemblies, our classroom water, and more! Congratulations to Mrs. Emmons's class for winning in 4th Grade, and Mr. Dibert's class for winning in 5th Grade.
5th Grade Chess Club
During the month of December, 5th Grade teacher Mrs. Hagaman helped facilitate a student-led Chess Club. Students asked if they could start the club and Mrs. Hagaman has been supervising this during lunch and recess time. Students learned through the computer and are participating in a tournament. The finals will be played using actual chess boards.
