    Greetings Colbert family, and potential members of Cougar Nation,   

    Welcome to the 23-24 school year where our school theme for the year isGame On: Level Up!As always, we are aiming to enhance our legacy of service, partnership, and high-quality instruction.  We look forward anticipatorily to dedicating yet another year to transforming our scholars into productive citizens, that will transform our world through continuous improvement in academia and social-emotional learning. 

    I am excited to co-parent with each and every one of you and spend another year ensuring that our scholars are being met where they are, academically, socially, and emotionally, in efforts to gradually accelerate their achievement. It is my constant aim to ensure that all contributing barriers and achievement gaps are eliminated through quality instruction and data-driven interventions provided by our highly qualified staff. 

    Know and understand that I am fully aware of the importance of all stakeholders in the lives of the children that we shape, mold, and hold in efforts to cater to the whole child. Our priority is to provide a quality educational experience for all that we encounter. Know that as you are an integral part of your child’s success, we welcome you with open arms to be active in your child’s education, and to serve as an asset to the Colbert community. Together we can achieve the perceived impossible. 

    With that, I charge you to embrace a mindset of C.H.A.N.G.E. (Children Have A Need to Grow Everyday), as our overarching goal is to educate today’s children, to succeed in tomorrow’s world. As we have worked out the kinks of F.A.S.T. and B.E.S.T. and made significant progress last year, this year promises to be an amazing year, and I look forward to seeing you around! #gameon #levelup

    Educationally yours,

    Principal McLeod
