Welcome to Colon Community Schools

The 2015-16 school year comes in with many changes, yet there is also an excitement about the potential of things to come.  Our new district administrative team offers a wide range of experience in the field of education which will serve our students and district well.  Our school board has a vision of excellence and is committed to providing the best opportunities for our students.   Our parents want a school where there children receive a quality education and can become well prepared for adulthood.   And the community is devoted to a partnership of success for the children of Colon Schools.

Happy Fall!

Dear Colon Families and Friends,

Happy Fall!  I hope you are enjoying this fabulous Fall as much as I am.  Being a Kansas girl and growing up with only a few trees here and there I marvel at the lush and beautiful surroundings we have in Michigan.  The colors are so impressive on my drive to and from school that I find myself slowing down a bit just to enjoy the scenery.

A special Thank You to all of our elementary families for being mindful of our Parent Waiting Area.  We will continue this practice, especially at the end of the day for student pick-ups.  Safety is something that will always be at the top of our priority list and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

We have a new member of our elementary team.  I hope you will help me welcome Crystal Lafler, our new K-12 School Counselor.

We will be seeing you soon for Parent Teacher Conferences so take good care until then!
