Greetings To The Colebrook Consolidated School Community

It is a privilege to welcome you to Colebrook Consolidated School (CCS).  For the past 75 years, CCS has provided a balanced foundation of skills and experiences to prepare its students for the future.  The town of Colebrook has taken great pride in  this amazing school which has enjoyed high levels of student achievement, small class sizes, a balanced curriculum and a faculty and staff who thoroughly enjoy their work in helping each child reach their potential. 

After retiring from Connecticut schools with more than 38 years experience as a Teacher, Principal and Superintendent, I was delighted to join the Colebrook team as it's part time Superintendent in the fall of 2020.   Each day it is amazing to see how this dynamic K-6 school staff  works closely with parents and the community to not only maximize educational excellence for each of our children, but to also ensure a safe and nurturing school experience. Our students depart CCS at the end of 6th grade ready to continue their success at Northwest Regional School District 7.   We are proud of our collaboration with Region 7.  The recent awarding of the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence honor to Region 7 Schools attests to the quality K-12 educational experience that Colebrook provides. 

I would like to thank everyone in our school community - students, parents, staff, Board of Education, and residents - for their positive outlook, hard work and perseverance during the challenges of the current pandemic.   The spirit of working together has never been stronger here at CCS !  Thank you everyone! 

Please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me if I can be of any help to you.
