Run For Reading

Run for Reading is a lap-a-thon fundraiser at every San Rafael elementary and middle school, organized by the HeadsUp foundation for San Rafael Public Education. Funds raised through Run for Reading are vital in support of our library specialists.  More than 4,200 kids will be running laps to raise money to keep their school libraries open. See photos from last year at www.runforreading.com. Here at COLEMAN, our kids will be running MARCH 28TH.  What can you do? Get ready to help your kids collect pledges from family and friends near and far. Kids will learn all about it & get pumped up at an assembly in early March. And come join us on the day of the event, counting laps and cheering our runners on. It'll be a fun day!

Parent Tour Schedule

Parents of students who will enter kindergarten in 2014 or parents of prospective Coleman students in other grades are invited to join Mr. Scott Carson, School Principal, for an orientation and classroom observation.  The last parent tour for the school year is scheduled for Monday, April 7, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. We look foward to meeting you!
