At the end of every school year, Ramona Colon plans a field day for the students and staff at Henry Lomb School 20 off North Clinton Avenue. She rents a popcorn machine and a cotton candy maker, hires a DJ and sets up a dunk tank for the principal. At the end of the day, teachers wave at the children departing on school buses for the last time.
Colon has been a parent there for 20 years, with her youngest daughter now in fifth grade at the school. She’s been there longer than almost all of the staff.
