Colon 5th grade students are taking part in STARBASE at the Air National Guard Base in Battle Creek. One day a week, for 5 weeks, students engage in STEM science activities which tie into Math and Science standards. Building water rockets, computer design, egg astronauts, and straw rockets are just some of the hands on learning taking place. For almost 10 years Colon 5th graders have enjoyed this adventures at STARBASE!
Welcome to our new school year! We are thrilled to open the school doors and to have the opportunity to work with you and your children this year.
First day of school: Monday, August 28th. School begins at 8:00 AM. Doors open at 7:45 AM. Our first day is a half-day of school. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon.
We have a new procedure for the beginning of the day. All students go to the gym when they enter the building and wait with their class. Teachers will pick them up from the gym at 7:55.
The children will spend time in the classroom building their class community by sharing Good Things. We know this will provide a strong sense of belonging in our safe and orderly school.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
Mrs. Martha N Hymer, Principal
