District News:

  1. Letter from Superintendent Mathieu to the Colchester Public School and Colchester Community, As the school year is coming to close and my 34 years as an educator and an administrator in the Colchester school system will conclude, I wanted to say how much I have appreciated my time in this wonderful town. I will forever have lasting memories of the great educational improvements we have made together and the lasting friendships I have developed over the years. I will cherish our time together and look forward to watching the school district become even stronger and more innovative in the coming years. As many of the staff has heard over the years, the phrase “The Colchester Way” is something special that keeps us smiling and coming back year after year.   Please treasure what you have in this district and don’t ever lose sight that it has always been about the children. With much appreciation, Jeff Mathieu, aka Mr. Mat
