Coloma Elementary School

Coloma Elementary School is a public elementary school located in central Wisconsin serving students in four-year kindergarten through sixth grade. Coloma is a small community that is historically made up of working-class families with strong roots in farming. Our community has instilled these strong values onto the students that attend Coloma Elementary.

Maintaining a strong connection with the families at Coloma Elementary is the way we continue to develop and grow students to meet their full potential. By forming a strong bond between students, parents, and staff we are able to form a deeper understanding of the expectations both academically and socially at Coloma Elementary. As a school we had to focus on diversifying our communication methods to help reach all of our families. Whether it be through phone calls, texting, emails, or video conferences our goal has always been to maintain the strong level of support we receive from our families.

Staff members at Coloma Elementary focus on continuing to build relationships with our students and families. As a school, we focus on providing the necessary support that students need both in and out of the classroom. The staff has always taken great pride in helping to meet the social emotional needs of all our students, while also providing a strong academic learning environment. By continuing to foster these relationships with our students we are able to recognize their successes and the efforts within the classroom both academically and socially.
