Welcome to Collins Elementary School and to another exciting school year. This is my third year as the Principal at Collins and I am excited about the adventure we are about to begin on for the 2016-2017 school year.
Being an educator in the Boone County Schools for the last 20 years, I know Collins Elementary is rich in tradition, academic focus, and community involvement. These are just a few reasons I am proud to be a part of this school. As your Principal, I will filter all decisions through one simple question, “Is this what is best for the students at Collins?” I will work with the faculty and staff to continue to introduce new ideas and programs that are aimed at taking the students at Collins into the 21st Century. Even though the world around us is changing that does not mean we have abandoned old values that have helped create the wonderful environment and rich academics, which are established at Collins.
We will stress the essence of quality within our school and at the same time; reinvigorate the academics, fine arts, and extra-curricular activities. This cannot be done by just one person; it is the culmination of quality work by students, staff, parents, and the community.
Thank you in advance for your partnership for the 2017-2018 school year. I look forward to meeting you and your child throughout this year. I know your child’s educational experience is very important to you and the staff at Collins Elementary take that responsibility very seriously. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time if I may be of assistance.
