In Animation Club students will write, produce, develop, edit and create a soundtrack for a 5 minute animated video. This video will be entered in several media competitions. This club is limited to 4th graders only due to competition rules. The art teacher will select approximately twelve students to join the club on the basis of talent, reliability, good behavior and availability. If students receive a discipline referral they are not eligible to participate in the Animation Club. Missing meetings, poor behavior, lack of effort or late pick up after club meetings could result in students being released from the club. Upon selection, parents will receive a note home explaining further rules and regulations. Please contact Animation Club sponsor Steve Hardock for more information.
The Coronado Beach News Crew is made up of 5th grade students selected by the media specialist and 4th grade teachers.

Students should meet the following criteria in order to be selected for news crew: well-behaved (no referrals); good reader - reading on or above grade level; get along well with others; listen and follow directions; respect school property/equipment. Please contact News Crew sponsor Alice Andrews for more information.

grade students will be given the opportunity to join
our hydroponics club. What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in sand, gravel, or liquid, with added nutrients but without soil. We are looking forward to growing our own

Running Club is an opportunity to practice
physical fitness and to have fun. Participants will run, jog
or walk approximately 45 minutes once a week. An
on-going record of miles will be kept and our goal is for
each child to achieve at least 26.2 miles (a full marathon)
during the course of the year. This club is limited to 30
students. The selection will be determined by the first
30 permission slips that are completed, signed, and returned
to the sponsor. Poor behavior, late pick-up after club
meetings, more than 2 absences, and discipline referrals
could result in students being released from the club.
Warnings will be sent home for parents to sign and return.

Welcome back! Safety Patrol students have been
diligently manning their posts and helping to keep order on
campus. They jumped right into their responsibilities and
have done a fantastic job already. Just a reminder: It will be
very helpful to let the front office know your child is on
Safety Patrol when he or she will be absent or checked out
early. This will allow the substitute to prepare to take over
during an absence. We’re off to a great start to a wonderful
year ahead! Mrs. Cleveland

We are extremely excited to announce the creation of our very own chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society here at Coronado! The NEHS is modeled after the National Honor Society, which is a national student recognition program. Our chapter of NEHS will recognize students in both fourth and fifth grade for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstration of personal responsibility. Throughout the year, students will provide meaningful service to the school and community and develop essential leadership skills. To be eligible for membership consideration, students must have at least a B average and must meet high standards of responsibility, service and leadership.
A new club this year will allow second and third graders the opportunity to grow plants and use them around our campus. We have a new greenhouse which will be set up to start our seedlings. In additional, our club will be working in the butterfly garden to maintain it so that classes can use it for a learning environment.
