News & Announcements

  • On Wednesday, I sent out an email to all families that contained a brief survey about our new snack program. Please take a moment to fill it out and give us some feedback about it. The survey will close Sunday evening and the data will be examined next week. We will then use that information, along with feedback received from both staff and students to make any necessary adjustments to the program.

  • The 6th grade food drive will run through next Friday. They are asking for donations of non-perishable goods and toiletries. Pantry staples and toiletries are greatly appreciated. All donations go to Hilltown Churches Food pantry. Donations will be collected until February 18 at Colrain Central School or Griswold Memorial Library.
