Principal’s Message 11/12

Dear Collins Community,

We hope you all had an amazing weekend.  It was so wonderful to see so many families painting together at our PBIS Paint Along Event last week.  Seeing the creativity and smiles throughout the gym was a great reminder of just how important it is to slow down and spend quality time with one another.  Thank you for your participation.
