Don't forget to join us Tomorrow Night (November 30th) for Snacks With the Superintendent. Hope to see you there
We would like to thank the Board of Education for approving the resurfacing of our track (Including pole vault, high jump and long jump areas) using Sinking Fund dollars last night at the Board of Education meeting. Maintenance Director Chris Greenwald says "This is a great investment for our kids and community. The track surface has been deteriorating for awhile and becoming a safety concern. Our track is used year round by our community members and our track teams" With the addition of the track being resurfaced, the Sinking Fund passed in 2019 have allowed Colon Schools to add air conditioning in each classroom in the Elementary and High School, restructure and resurface the Elementary parking lot, resurface the High School parking lot and upgrade the lighting in both the Elementary and High School.
Please read an update from Mrs. Pegan regarding the One Chip Challenge. Thank You

Good afternoon Colon High School families. As we begin Quarter 2, teachers and administration wanted to remind our families and students about backpacks. We will be closely monitoring this as we begin our new quarter. Per the student code of conduct and due to safety and security reasons, students are not allowed to carry book/gym/duffel bags or backpacks during the school day. These items are to be placed in student lockers. The only exception will be for students coming and going from athletic conditioning or physical education. Please review this with your Colon High School students. If you have any questions, please reach out to Rachel Kowalski, Superintendent of Colon Schools and Principal of Colon High School at 269-386-2239. Thank you so much for your partnership in education. GO MAGI!
