Coloma Intermediate

CIS News September 9, 2019

Off To A Good Start!

We had an awesome week at CIS! We spent our first week welcoming students, reviewing expectations, and helping students get acquainted with their new classroom routines. We're looking forward to a great year!

Before and After School Care

Coloma Community Schools offers our before and after school program for all children in grades K-5. On regular school days our morning program begins at 7:00 a.m. and runs until the start of the school day. Our afternoon program begins when the school day ends and runs until 5:00 p.m. We do not offer our afternoon program on any days where there is an early dismissal or half-day.

On our late start days we do offer a morning program at the Alwood Gym at Coloma Intermediate for all students in grades K-5. Our morning program on our late start days allows a parent to drop off their child beginning at 7:00 a.m. Staff will then walk our elementary students up to their building just prior to the start of their school day. Cost of this program is $5 per child or $10 per family.

Our First Late Start is This Wednesday September 11

Parking Lot Guidelines

Our parking lot can get a little confusing! Please read our parking lot guidelines to help keep our students safe at dismissal time!

CIS Back To School Night is September 17

Coloma Intermediate will host a Back to School Night on September 17th from 6:00-7:00 pm. Parents will have the opportunity to meet their child's teachers and learn about classroom routines, expectations, and curriculum. All classroom presentations are for parents only, and will take place in your child's classroom. We look forward to seeing you!

Specials Schedule

This year, students will attend their specials classes (Art, PE, and Music) on a rotating schedule, called an ABC Schedule. Each homeroom will attend the specials class on their designated day. Teachers will explain how this works at our Back to School Night.
