Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Community Members,
As we move into the holiday season, I am excited to share the many reasons we have to celebrate! Each day we remain committed to honoring our school-wide theme—One Team, One Goal…We are #ColtsUnited! We continue to provide challenging educational programs for all students within a safe and nurturing environment. Our academic and co-curricular activities cultivate in our students a sense of productivity and a responsibility to be ethical and kind. With new clubs and academic offerings, this school year is no exception when it comes to providing our students with promise and possibilities. High standards and expectations for students and faculty/staff remain the bedrock of our school’s foundation. With such talented students and a supportive community and staff determined to maximize student potential, our Colts will undoubtedly reap the benefits of this extraordinary partnership.
I am proud to announce our Chef Aruna Lien as our Teacher of The Year and George Heck as our Employee of the year! They are powerful representations of our united efforts towards providing a positive experience for our students to become stronger academically, emotionally, and physically as they grow in their talents. Some highlights include adding Best Buddies and Kindness Matters to our clubs this year to reinforce part of our journey to nurturing a safe environment that is conducive for learning. Both of these clubs focus on encouraging students to exercise tolerance and acceptance as an everyday norm. We also expanded our Latinos in Action (LIA) classes and also added another elementary school for LIA students to visit and assist those students with their academic development. We are offering more areas for Industry Certification tests! We increased our AP pass rate by 5% and are working tirelessly to do it again. We made significant learning gains on our EOC exams. Our Chorus was invited to participate in the prestigious Candlelight Processional in Orlando in November and our Band received 1st place in Class 3A! School beautification is still in progress! Our weight room has been renovated by SMART Bond funds and our Single Point of Entry is still in the works. We are on our way to being an ‘A’ school in every way!
My year has been enriched by spending quality time with our students during SnackChat with Suarez—a time that I spend with select students every few weeks to gain a better understanding of how I can better serve my school community. I have also been inspired by parents/guardians during my monthly Colt Café. Your constructive feedback, positive comments, and ways to solve issues together enable us all to continue to seek excellence in all endeavors. Colt Country is filled with many of education’s brightest and most talented individuals. We are here to teach, to guide, to love and to support our school community as they continue to be awesome human beings and remain Colt Strong!
As we enter into this holiday season and usher in the New Year, let me be the first to say—I wish us all the magic that comes with the start of a new year. May we continue to maximize our full potential in every facet of our lives by using the extraordinary gifts and talents that make us unique and wonderful! Let’s continue to inspire each other, to empower each other, and to encourage each other to be better every day. And may that magic be anew in Colt Country…always. #ColtsUnited #MSDStrong
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year (2019, here we come)!
