CIS Crosswalk Safety

George Hopf, Coloma Intermediate School's crossing guard, worked with the local police department and the city of Coloma to get an area painted in front of the Intermediate School to prevent cars from parking in or near the student crosswalk. This "No Parking Zone" is an additional safety precaution for our community.

Parents and community members can park or drop off their students in the East parking lot and use the crosswalk to safely cross the road and enter the Intermediate School Building. For the safety of our students, do not park or drop students off at the crosswalk or in the "red zone".

Thank you, Mr. Hopf, for always being there for us!

Friendship Stew

The 4th graders celebrated Thanksgiving by making Thanksgiving Friendship Stew. After studying theme in language arts, the classes read Stone Soup. Students worked together to determine the theme based on the events in the book. They chose themes like sharing, teamwork, and generosity, and supported those themes with details from the book.

Families sent in items that students poured together to create their delicious Friendship Stew. Each student received a bag of the mixture to enjoy. Like the characters in Stone Soup, the 4th graders learned that together they could create something quite tasty!
