Principal's Message


    Assistant Principal

    Greetings Colbert families, and potential members of Cougar Nation,

    Oh, how exciting it is to be named the proud Principal of Colbert Museum Magnet School of Distinction! As we enter the last leg of the school year, I am excited to lead our students, staff, and parents, in kicking it up 10 notches, and ensuring that our students are receiving the necessary instructional strategies, and interventions to close the identified achievement gaps, prior to our big close out in May for the FSA!

    As we prepare to close out the BEST year ever, I encourage all stakeholders to be actively involved in every facet of our students’ education. It is us, that is charged with the obligation to make a difference, not only in the students that we encounter daily, but the future of the world we live in. As we hope, dream, and wish for a change in this world, we must remain focused on the biggest advantage that we have, that enables us to invest and impact society in the greatest way possible, and that is our students. We possess the power to be the change that we wish to see, and it is now left to us to maximize our impact in the lives of our future leaders.

    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, and provide a quality educational experience to all that we encounter. Know that as you are an integral part of your child’s success, that we welcome you with open arms to be active in your child’s education, and to serve as an asset to the Colbert community, because 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), because above all, our overarching goal is to educate today’s children, to succeed in tomorrow’s world. Have an amazing rest of the year, and I look forward to seeing you around!


    Educationally yours,

    Principal McLeod
