Welcome to Colchester School!
At Colchester Elementary School we cherish and challenge every child every day. We have a very strong focus on academics, the arts, physical fitness and most importantly on character education. Welcome to our website - a celebration of what it means to be a 'Colchester Kid'.
We would be very happy to meet you in person, to show you our school and to answer your questions; please call ahead to arrange a school tour.
After 20 years as custodian of Colchester school, Mrs. Thordarson will be retiring effective October 31, 2011. Mrs. Thordarson will certainly be missed; she has provided a clean and healthy learning environment for two generations of Colchester students.
Mrs. Bryks, who has been working with Mrs. Thordarson for the past five years, will also be retiring.
We wish Mrs. Thordarson and Mrs. Bryks long and happy retirements.
Scholastic Book Fair
Our annual Halloween Carnival and Parade will be held on Monday, October 31st. The carnival will take place during the morning with each class visiting the gym and taking part in all the 'spooktacular' games created by our grade 6 students. After lunch recess, students will change into their costumes and will join in the parade scheduled to start at 1 pm. A big thank you goes out to the Parents' Association for supplying our students with a treat bag!
If any parents would like to help pack the treat bags, please come to the school on Thursday, October 27th at 9 am.
