From The Principal

We welcome May on Sunday and it is so hard to believe we are at this point in the school year.

Next week is Teacher, Staff, and Substitute appreciation week. Below are some ideas on how you can celebrate the Collins staff.

The STAAR schedule is also included below. Thank you for working appointments around your child's testing days. We are a closed campus for lunch visits on testing day.

Our Coin Wars total for former Collins seniors is $4700! Thank you for you generosity.

Progress Reports were posted in Parent Access this past week - please be sure to log on and check progress for this final grading period.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

STAAR Testing Important Reminders

● Please avoid scheduling appointments these days so that your child will be on campus to allow for testing. The state allows for a four hour testing window for the STAAR test, with the exception for students with accommodations that allow extra time set in place through their 504 or ARD.

● Collins strives to begin testing by 9:30 at the latest, taking a break for testers to eat lunch and resume the testing window.

Library Update

Collins Book Club finished the year at our last meeting on April 22. It was a blast to see these kids enjoy books all year long!

The last day to check out books in the Collins Library for the school year is May 13. All books are due May 19. If a book has been lost, it can be paid for with exact cash or check. Any cash amount given over the price of the lost book will be considered a donation to the lost book fund because we are unable to make change. If paying by check,it should be made out to the school that the books were checked out from (Collins, Ride, Clark, etc). Students can bring payment to the library and the librarian will issue a receipt. Once a book is paid for, it is yours to keep if found at a later date. Books are removed from the system once they are paid for.

Visit your local comic shop or book store. You can also check out the website at
