New Year brings exciting new activities to Colonial School

COLONIAL SCHOOLThe New Year brings new ideas to the school

Colonial School has lots to look forward to this year that Principal Tonya Wilson has planned for students.

In January, there will be a big reading engagement project with the PTA, exploring the diversity of Colonial School and working with students on student-focused activities, said Mrs. Wilson.

“We have the food drive,” said Mrs. Kim Norman, student government adviser and school librarian. “We talked about Green Day. We have pre-K story hour. We have Pennies for Patients and drama club.” 

This year, the school will be introducing the Read-A-Thon. Read-A-Thon is a program that gives kids rewards when they read that show how many minutes they’ve read for that week. And, every minute they read they are raising money for the school. (This is completely runned by the PTA.)

“Next week, the second graders are starting a new unit in multiplication.” said Mrs. Kathleen Dragan, a teacher in that grade.

One of her students said they liked “learning more multiplication.”

“We’re doing a unit on China, and I am excited for that because I like learning about places,” said Bianca Gupta.
