Welcome to Colebrook Consolidated School. Colebrook is a small rural community with a big sense of pride in our school. A staff consisting of 32 full and part-time employees implements high quality educational programs for 81 students enrolled in kindergarten through grade six.
At Colebrook Consolidated School we challenge our students with a comprehensive curriculum that provides them with the skills necessary to achieve. We use a variety of assessment tools to assist us in focusing instruction and utilizing available resources. For students who do not achieve the established goals as measured through the various assessments, extra support is available both in and out of the classroom.
Technology education and up-to-date learning tools are priorities at CCS. Students in grades 4,5, and 6 are each assigned a Chromebook to use through the year. Classrooms for our younger students have iPads and work stations available for student use. Devices are used for word processing, research, skills practice and more.
Colebrook students and staff are T.e.R.R.i.F.i.C.C. We practice the character traits of trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, faithfulness, caring, and citizenship, with respect being a main focus this year. Students are recognized for demonstrating good character as part of the morning announcements. Opportunities to practice these traits are provided through the recycling program, duties raising the flag, serving lunch, making announcements, assisting with younger students, and in all facets of our school day.
Parents are important members of the Home-School Partnership. We celebrate First Day each year with a coffee, a school-wide assembly and then offer time for parents and community members to visit classrooms. Volunteer opportunities exist in the art room, field trips, and curriculum enrichment. We work very closely with our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to provide curriculum and cultural enrichment for our students. The PTO also provides funds to purchase equipment needed to enhance instruction. The Battell Arts Foundation, Colebrook Historical Society, and Colebrook Associates also provide funds to enhance cultural enrichment throughout the year. A large, handicap accessible playground was built for student use through a comparative effort between the PTO and the Town of Colebrook. One hundred volunteers worked tirelessly to build the play-scape over two days. It was an incredible sight and an example of the value placed on children and community in Colebrook.
We highly value effective communication at CCS so please feel free to contact me by phone (860) 379-2179 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if I can be of any further assistance. Colebrook Consolidated School is a great learning community, and we invite you to come be a part of it.
