I would like to thank our staff, parent volunteers, and student leaders for assisting with the smooth opening to the 2023-2024 school year. The opening of this school year has been a great start to a new and exciting beginning.
As we progress through first quarter, we will keep our focus on those things I have shared: Work to support staff, ensure students feel cared for, and achieve at the highest level possible in the areas of Freshman Success, remediating learning loss, and completing A-G requirements. If you have questions or concerns regarding credit recovery, A-G remediation, or need assistance with getting connected to school please come by the office to meet with a counselor or an administrator-we are here to assist you.
Knowing the effects of the pandemic are ongoing and there are other barriers beyond students’ control, it is important for students to have open access for support. Each student’s assigned counselor is available and willing to meet as needs arise. We also employ Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT’s) who are on campus daily and available to address social and emotional needs. It is important to understand how critical personal support is and Colony High School is ready to serve those needs. The Colony Wellness Center (located in D-Building) is open daily and staffed with multiple intervention therapists. At the student level we also have a Peer Counseling department that is ready to have students talk to students as needed. It is my wish for all students to feel they have a campus that is safe, focused on learning, and is willing and ready to support their every need.
I am so excited for the positive momentum we started this year with and look forward to what lies ahead. I love the Colony Titans and will do all I can to ensure a smooth first quarter. Remember the importance of finding your F-I-T and how much better achievement can be when connected with school. I appreciate your partnership as we work to establish the safe and welcoming environment that all students deserve and remember-Every Thing We Do At Colony, We Do With Pride.
I love you All,
