I would like to thank our staff, parent volunteers, and student leaders for assisting with all things Colony High School which ensured the smooth opening to the 2021-2022 school year. As I have mentioned to many, this opening is not like any others. Coming back from a long campus lay-off has its challenges but together we overcame.
As we progress through this first quarter, we will keep our focus on those things I have shared: Safety, Fun, and Learning. Remember the goals for Freshman Success, A-G completion and staying on track for graduation. Know that we have interventions in place, for all students, and will be working to ensure all goals are met. 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 Distance Learning and the current pandemic situation are taxing to both social and emotional needs, 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’s important to understand how critical personal support is and Colony High School is ready to serve those needs. At the student level, we also have a wonderful 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 to be back to an in-person instructional setting. I know it will take time to work out all the details, but together We Can Achieve. 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 at Colony High School.
I love you All,
