We're happy to be back in school! Enjoy some scenes from around MBS from December and early January.
Friday, February 3: Annual Colchester Recreation Talent Show
Wednesday, February 7 - K-5 Early Release Day
MBS Art teacher, Kate DeCoff, and the Malletts Bay students created "Osprey Wings," with each student contributing a uniquely designed feather. The wings were on display during parent-teacher conferences. Many students and staff posed for these outstanding photos! #mbs #spreadyourwings
Hundreds of Colchester students participated in National Walk to School Day. Not only did the kids receive great support and patience from commuters as they cautiously drove through our school zones but the police department and athletes from Colchester's own Saint Michael's College joined in to cheer them on!
We're gearing up for the return of our students on Wednesday, August 30th! Take a peek at what we were up to at our Opening Ceremony Inservice. #wearecolchester
As the school year comes to a close, our principals share what they are most proud of.
A busy time at MBS this month. We had Walk, Ride and Roll to School Day; the Art Show; and concerts! Enjoy the photos.
Ready, Set, BLAST OFF!!! Check out what this group of MBS 5th graders has been up to!
Students all around the district want to thank our teachers and staff for the incredible work they do all year long. They made this video to share why they appreciate the staff here at CSD!
Scenes from the annual MBS Lucky Day Carnival! Thanks to the MBS PTO and volunteers from CMS and CHS for making this fun event possible for our kids.
Check out this amazing video created entirely by Colchester students! Seniors Jaclyn Cline and Courtney Dessormeau traveled all over town asking kids what they love most about going to school in Colchester and then compiled the answers into one fantastic video. You'll love their responses and probably see someone you know!
As we make the final push to the polls, we have one last video to share with you from our Your Vote Matters series. We've titled this video "Be the Difference" because we believe at the end of the day, it could come down to just a handful of ballots. As timing would have it, Superintendent Minor gets to share some exciting news with you in this video. (Spoiler alert: the tax increase is going to be lower than we originally anticipated!)
Besides all of the necessary operational costs of running a school district with over two thousand students, what type of educational opportunities does the school budget provide our students? Why is the education system so different now than it was 20 years ago? Watch Superintendent Amy Minor's next video to find out.
Here's the new episode from our Your Vote Matters series! This week's topic is enrollment. Is it really declining? What would that mean for class sizes and teachers? Find that out and more by watching this 3-minute video hosted by Superintendent Amy Minor. Plus, there's a special treat at the end for music lovers!
Have you met the new superintendent yet? Every week we'll be producing short videos (less than 3 minutes!) hosted by Superintendent Amy Minor. She'll cover a variety of topics surrounding the budget and the impact it has on our students and taxpayers. Our overarching goal of this series is to communicate how important local votes are to our community and subsequently increase voter turnout. Have a question you want answered? Let us know!
The renovation of the Performing Arts Center for Colchester Schools is complete! We invite you watch the video to take a tour of the upgrades and hear students and faculty express their appreciation to the Colchester community for supporting this project.
