Summer Principal’s Message

Posted June 30th, 2014 by Mr. Meyer

Good afternoon Collins Community –

We hope this email finds you all well and enjoying the summer so far! We wanted to give you all some information on a few important dates for the upcoming school year.

School Information Day – August 14th   9:00 – 12:00  &  6:00-8:00:

As many of you know, we are currently busy making plans for next year.  We wanted to let you know that class placements for your child will be finalized by August 14th.  It is on this day you will be able to come to the building to pick up the name of your child’s teacher for the 2014/15 school year.  You will receive information about Accelerated Math placement on this day as well. There will also be opportunities to sign up for PTA and volunteer for PTA committees.  Any placement letter that is not picked up in person on that day will go out in US mail first thing on August 15th.  We know this is exciting information, but please understand for confidentiality purposes, we will not give placement letters to anyone but you or your child.


Teaching Placements for 2014-15:

Some of our staff members will be moving on to new endeavors next year. Whether it be retirement, a new school, a new district or even a new career, we wish them all well. We thank them for ALL that they have done for the children of and families of Collins School.  They have made a huge difference in the life of many children and personally I will miss each of them.
