Coloma Junior High

Comet Communication - November 18th

Leo Club - Food Drive

Our homerooms will be collecting canned goods and boxed items to benefit the food pantry at Hope Resources. The homeroom that collects the most, will earn a donut party for that homeroom class on November 29th.


Let’s show our community how great our school is and how much we care for those less fortunate. All items will be donated to our local food pantry at Hope Resources.

Dismissal

A few updates and reminders regarding our dismissal at the end of the day. Classes end at 3:00pm, buses are now leaving the Junior High/High School bus loop at 3:06pm.


Unless students are supervised by an adult, they must exit the building by 3:05. Study Hall is available Monday through Thursday from 3:05 - 4:05. It is highly recommended that if anyone needs to wait for a ride, that they are waiting in study hall. Students that need to only wait 10-15 minutes may wait quietly in the entry way.
