How a Kindergarten Class Bought a Goat (and Why!)

Meet an amazing group of Colchester kindergarteners who set out to buy a goat as an act of kindness.

Just Ask a Student

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!

Practicing Precision

See how students at Porters Point School practice precision in many different ways!

Your Vote Matters E4: Be the Difference

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!)

Your Vote Matters E3: Shaping Futures

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.

Your Vote Matters E2: Enrollment

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!

Your Vote Matters: Episode One

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!

Performing Arts Center Opens at CHS

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.

We believe in a shared learning environment that involves the collaboration of the entire community. Our instruction respects and addresses the needs of all students according to their readiness, learning style and interests to cultivate high levels of achievement. We value and promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of all to create a positive and effective learning community.
