2017 Washington Wheat Ambassadors…
Two high school seniors have been selected to represent Washington wheat farmers and will serve as the Washington Wheat Ambassadors for the upcoming year. Tessa Jantz of Ritzville and Nicholas Schultheis of Colton were selected after an initial written application process that also included submitting a short introductory video.
Jantz and Schultheis will each be giving a speech at the upcoming Washington Association of Wheat Growers Annual Awards Banquet on Nov. 10 during the Tri-State Grain Growers Convention in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The seniors will be judged on the quality of their presentation, and at the conclusion of the banquet, scholarships funded by the Washington Wheat Foundation of $2,500 and $2,000 will be awarded. Jantz and Schultheis will represent Washington wheat farmers at various civic and community events and will also participate in an advocacy trip to Olympia with WAWG leaders.
Congratulations to the Colton Football Team for winning its 6th Academic State Championship, with a grade point average of 3.58!
We invite each parent to conference with their child’s teacher. A twenty-five-minute discussion concerning your child’s academic and social progress with the teacher is important. The support and experience a child receives at home and school is most beneficial when efforts are coordinated and understood by all involved. To schedule a conference, K-6 parents please call Tammy McBaine at 229-3386.

The Colton School District will be revisiting our Strategic Plan this fall.
This strategic plan provides the filter to make great decisions and the framework for our actions as we move forward to serve students and community. This strategic plan includes our mission, strategic objectives, action plans, and the measurement tools needed to chart our progress. In order to create a strategic plan that reflects the hopes and dreams of our two communities, we request participation from residents committed to the future success of our school.
If you are interested in participating in the strategic planning process please contact Nate Smith using the contact information below.
