Greetings Collins families,

If you are new to Collins, we warmly welcome you to the Collins community. We also welcome back our Coyote families who are continuing with us this year. We are delighted to partner with you to ensure a positive and productive 2014-15 school year for our Collins Coyotes.

Every staff member at Collins is invested in the well-being and success of our students. Over the summer, staff members have read books, attended trainings, collaborated and planned to make this the best year ever. We are life-long learners committed to our district mission to provide students with an engaging educational environment, built upon proven academics and high standards.

We know that students’ future success in college and careers begins with the work we do now--every single school day must contribute to each student’s learning trajectory. We will accomplish that through thorough planning and thoughtful lesson design, and using research-based strategies and resources including “multi-tiered systems of support” for academics and behavior. In other words, we will analyze how each student is doing (using data) and collaborate to provide the level of academic and behavior support each student needs.

Great academics are not enough. Positive relationships are the foundation of a successful learning and working environment. We know that in order to thrive, our students need to be grounded in a caring community where they are connected, competent and contributing citizens (the 3 Cs).

As the principal of Collins, I strive to bring out the best in every student and staff member with high expectations and high support. At Collins, we are “achievers and believers.” By believing in ourselves, we contribute to our community. By believing in each other, we are connected and can count on a community of support.  By believing in doing our best, through effort and persistence, we are competent and can make our dreams come true.

I invite you to “join the pack” of adults working together to ensure all of our students succeed. Your input helps us be a better, more responsive school. Your communication helps us serve our child(ren) better. Your participation can enrich our school community and increase opportunities for students. Working together, we can ensure a great experience and positive outcomes for our students. Thank you for entrusting us with your child(ren).

Best regards,

Dr. Barbara Mondloch
