WE are all enjoying our favorite lunch of the year… Thanksgiving dinner! Thank you to our wonderful nutrition staff who take the time to serve us healthy and delicious meals! #sousharks #colonialSDstrct #j_csd

Going above and beyond the call of duty… our principal helping to serve our students a healthy lunch when we needed an extra set of hands! #powerofwecsd #sousharks

Showing the #powerofwecsd at work today, CSD Superintendent @j_csd and all of the #Colonialnation leadership team pitched in today at #sousharks for lunch duty! #schoollunchrocks

Thanks to #sousharks for hosting us for this morning’s HB 100 bill signing. This legislation will increase mental health services in our elementary schools.
