Colona Grade School
From Kevin Dolan
Students and their families at Colona Grade School in Henry County benefit from the resources provided by the 21st Century Community Learning Center grant administered by the Regional Office of Education No. 28. Family engagement is a priority for the teachers, families, and the community partners in Colona. Ms. Brackett and Ms. Whipple describe how family engagement begins with a welcoming school atmosphere for every family, which creates a sense of community. Colona Grade School staff encourage families to share in their child’s education. Families may select a variety of opportunities (e.g., family activities, parenting workshops, school/community events) to be engaged with their student’s education.For more information, contact Lisa Brackett, the learning support services coordinator at Regional Office of Education No. 28.
