Coloma Schools kick off year with new Principals and freshman orientation
By Annette Christie
Coloma High School will be holding their Freshman Orientation on August 28, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. They start the evening in the high school auditorium so parents are encouraged to park in the west lot and use entrance #10. Administrators start with an informational briefing and then the freshmen are split into groups and assigned a Teen Mentor (a senior) who gives guided tours and talks about Coloma High School (CHS). The event is open to the Class of 2021 and any students new to CHS.
Coloma students start their day a little different in that on their first day, all students report to the auditorium for a brief welcome back. Students then rotate by class through four stations where they will get issued lockers (and purchase parking passes), be issued their Chromebook, have their picture taken by our photography company (Lifetouch), and receive their rules briefing over high school rules, procedures, and the student handbook. All high school students should be prepared to have their photos taken on the first day of school.
Elementary and Intermediate schools
Open Houses for the Elementary and Intermediate schools are scheduled for August 30, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. for the Elementary and 5-7 p.m. for the Intermediate. Families will be able to check out the buildings, see classrooms, and meet the staff. The PTO will host an Ice Cream Social and a have a bounce house for kids to play in. “We’re excited to welcome our families in kicking off a great year,” stated new Elementary Principal John Klein.
