6th Grade Walking Trip
Our 6th graders were able to participate in their annual walking trip this past week. Our students walk to the cemetery and place flags on the gravesites in honor of Memorial Day. Students are provided with a lesson about why we celebrate Memorial Day and it's importance.
Last week our 8th graders had the opportunity to visit Mackinac Island. We also invited 9th graders to attend this year due to their trip not being possible last year. Our students had a wonderful time and represented Coloma Community Schools well. They were able to explore the island, participate in tours and most importantly make great memories with their classmates.
Dress Code Reminders
Just a few reminders on dress code as the weather heats up.
- We expect that shorts and skirts are reasonable in length during the school day.
- Tank tops have straps on the shoulder that are at least 3 fingers wide and are cut closely to the underarms.
- Shirts must touch the top of your pants
Students that do not meet the dress code will be asked to change, provided with other clothing options or asked to call home for a change of clothes.
As stated in the handbook:Students are expected to wear clothing in a neat, clean, and well-fitting manner while on school property and/or in attendance at school sponsored activities. Students are to use discretion in their dress and are not permitted to wear apparel that causes a substantial disruption in the school environment.
