    As we gear up for the 2023-2024 school year, I want to share a powerful message inspired by the book "Be a Coffee Bean". Just like the majic that happens when coffee beans meet hot water, we have the incrdible ability to transform challenges into opportunities for growth and positivity.

    I am Kelly Marotz, your principal for the second year, and I am thrilled to continue this journey of learning and discovery with each and every one of you.  Let's embrace the essence of a coffee bean and spread warmth and inspiration throughout our school community.

    Just as a coffee bean can transform the ordinary water into a flavorful and energizing cup of coffee, we too can transform our school environment by being positive influencers.  Our words, actions, and attitudes have the power to impact those around us.  By choosing kindness, empathy, and respect, we can create a school culture that radiates positivity.

    In "Be a Coffee Bean", we learn that when faced with adversity, a carrot becomes soft, and an egg becomes hard.  But the coffee bean, when confronted with boiling water, releases its aroma and flavor, filling the room with its delightful essence.  Likewise, let's teach our children the power of resilience and optimism when facing challenges.  Encourage them to be the coffee beans that spread positivity and joy, no matter the circumstances.

    As we embark on this new academic year, we will focus on nurturing each child's unique strengths, just like every coffee bean has its distinct flavor profile.  Our dedicated teacher and staff are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment where every student can thrive and reach their fullest potential.

    Just as coffee brings people together, our school community is a gathering place for diverse families, teachers, and students.  Let's collaborae and communicate openly, ensuring that our children receive the best possible education, enriched by the collective efforts of everyone involved.

    Our school website will serve as a virtual coffee house, where you can find all the updates, resources and exciting events happening at Coleman Elementary.  So make yourself comfortable, grab a digital cup of knowledge, and stay connected with us!

    I am incredibly grateful for the support and involvement of our Coleman Elementary families.  Your enthusiasm and engagement are the sugar and cream that make our school community truly exceptional.

    Here's to a year of growth, positivity, and transformation!  Let's be the coffee beans that bring out the best in ourselves and others, creating a school culture that is inspiring and welcoming to all.

    With warmest regards,

    Principal Marotz
