Collins Families:

Can you believe we are approaching the middle of February already!? This year sure seems to be flying by.

At Collins we continue to build a tradition of excellence. The community at Collins contributes to this important tradition everyday by continually striving to maintain our high standards in order for students to get the most out of their educational experiences. Students at Collins are asked to contribute to this important tradition by maintaining high personal expectations for themselves. We strive every day to facilitate caring relationships in our school and expect students to behave in ways that best represent themselves and their school. We look forward to a promising second half of the school year and appreciate our partnership with you all.
