A Note From Mrs. Looman
- Thank you to all who attended our Winter Concert. The students all did an amazing job and I was very proud of all of them.
- Students thoroughly enjoyed having Marty Kelley visit yesterday. You have the opportunity to order some of his books. I've included the order form below and hard copies will be coming home after break. The orders are due Jan. 12, 2024. Checks should be made out to Colrain Central School PTO. I've also attached the order form down below and we can always send another one home.
- I'm very excited to announce that Talia Miller has been awarded a 2024 Grants in Place Fellowship. The 2024 Fellows will each work with their students on place-based education projects that will impact their school and rural community. Be on the lookout for more information about this.
- School will be closed Dec. 25-Jan. 1 for winter break. School will reopen at our regular time on Tuesday, Jan. 2nd. I hope you all are able to enjoy time with your family and friends and enjoy the peace of the holiday season.
Books That Speak to Rural Readers, a project from Ms. Miller
Help me give my students books that spark their love of reading because we have many students in our rural school who love sports and hunting, but not enough books for them. Our library has been updated significantly over the past year and we have a much more diverse collection of books than before.

MTRS theater participation opportunity for district 5th and 6th grade students
The Mohawk Trail Regional School (MTRS) Performing Arts Department will be casting for their spring theater production, YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN, being performed on May 17 and 18.
Fifth and sixth grade students in the districts are invited by Eva Husson-Stockhamer, MTRS director of performing arts, to audition for participation in the cast chorus. Auditions will take place on Friday, January 12, 2024 in the Mohawk Trail Regional School auditorium. A brief meeting for elementary school student parents/caregivers will follow auditions on Friday, January 12, 2024.
If your fifth or sixth grader is interested, please fill out this form to give permission for your student to participate and offer necessary contact information. Forms must be completed and turned in by the day of auditions. For questions or to request a hard copy of the participation form, contact Miss Eva at firstname.lastname@example.org who manages the details of the production including rehearsal schedules, transportation, and more. Please know, while transportation from the elementary schools to MTRS may be available, a parent/guardian/caregiver will be responsible for picking up your cast member following rehearsals.
General rehearsals will begin on Wednesday, February 28, 2024. The expectation for the fifth and sixth grade students will be to rehearse on Fridays only, beginning Friday, March 1. A few weeks before opening night, more rehearsals will be added. Families and caregivers will be given a full rehearsal schedule following auditions. Email will be used for communication about production details.
Send questions to Miss Eva at email@example.com. Thank you in advance!
