Vivian Suarez, Principal's Message
Dear Colt Country,
I know that we are facing a time of uncertainty and a variety of difficulties as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and distance learning. I know how difficult this time is especially for our senior students who were looking forward to the many traditional significant activities during their final year of high school. It’s hard to imagine a time without senior proms, award ceremonies, Grad Nights and especially graduations. All of those events have always served as the culmination of high school experiences. My heart truly goes out to you and all of our students whose events from academics to athletics have been impacted by school closures. Please rest assured that your hopes and aspirations still live on in our hearts and minds as we continue to try to find ways to weaken the impact. Our students have always been our focus and COVID-19 has not changed our vision. Their success is still all that we see!
We, in Colt Country, are strong, resilient, supportive and resourceful! Since the doors to our school have been closed, I have watched us open the doors to our homes virtually with as much love and care as we did when students were able to enter the threshold of our classrooms. Our spirit of grace and flexibility toward students and each other has been overwhelmingly evident and appreciated. Our patience with the entire school community as we all learn to process this new adventure has made all the difference in ensuring our success with distance learning. Our earnest endeavor has always been to offer the best education and our priority to deliver without variation during this unprecedented time in history will not be soon forgotten. The safety, security, and peace of mind of all of those who hail green and blue remain our central goals for academic and social success. We know that this too shall pass, but while it is here we are determined to continue to make our school community feel supported and embraced. #ColtStrong
I feel fairly confident that I can speak for all of our faculty and staff when I say that we really miss seeing you every day! There is simply no comparison to the pleasure of seeing you and hearing your voices fill the halls of Colt Country. I long for the day when we can return to normalcy and bridge this gap with the human-to-human connections we have all become accustomed to having. Our entire team is doing everything possible to ensure our kids continue to learn at home in amazing and innovative ways! You are appreciated!
On a personal note, I know how difficult it is to juggle stresses of all kind—work, family, school, etc. and still make time to remember that you are not alone. I know that I am not able to physically embrace you or to even offer you a personal word of encouragement every day, but please know that each day that I am graced to have, I pray for our continued perseverance and strength to handle any and all obstacles. I know how blessed I am to have wonderful students, faculty, staff and a community-at-large whose support is overabundant and unparalleled. I cannot thank you enough for all that you do to ensure that Colt Country maintains its spirit of excellence. A principal could not ask for a better team to be in her corner. I thank you from the bottom of my bottomless heart. I love and miss you!
Until we meet again stay safe, stay healthy, stay #ColtsUnited.
Your Proud Principal,
Vivian Suarez, Principal
