COLOMA — While most school districts are dormant by the middle of July, the Coloma Intermediate School building was busy Monday.

The Summer Migrant Education Program provided by Coloma Community Schools returned to its normal venue this summer for the area’s migrant families. About 40 children – aged kindergarten through eighth grade who have parents participating in summer agriculture work in Benton Harbor, Coloma and Watervliet – have been taking part in the curriculum since the beginning of July.
