Etched in Stone

Kelly Colanto

Freshman, Kelly Colanto is very excited to begin her first semester as an on-staff Journalist. Colanto works on designing the Etched in Stone website as well as being part of the arts beat on the paper where she covers art classes, music, and productions held by the school.


Colanto’s main hobby is dancing, which takes up all of her time outside of school. She is on the Fossil Ridge Varsity Dance Team and enjoys every second of it, including being with her friends, learning the new technique, and traveling around Colorado for competitions. She even traveled to Florida for the dance team’s national competition. Colanto plans on continuing dance throughout high school, whether that be apart of the dance team or dancing at a studio.


Before dance, however, Colanto played soccer for 8 years competitively until she decided dance was more enjoyable for her. She moved to Fort Collins from Northern California the summer before her eighth-grade year and she loves when her best friends come to visit or when she can see them over the summer.
