Letter from the Principal

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Colegrove Park Elementary School is excited to open our doors this fall on Tuesday, September 7th for students in grades K-6 and our Pre-kindergarten students will start school on Tuesday, September 14th.  Faculty and staff are busy with preparations for our full in-person return to school.  We are excited to welcome new students, reconnect with students who engaged in full remote learning last year and come together as an entire school community with our full in-person students who attended CPES last spring.  As we start the year, we will continue to provide for safe and healthy classrooms by implementing a variety mitigation strategies in response to COVID-19 and the Delta variant.

A continued emphasis for the start of the new school year will continue to focus on cultivating respectful, responsible and resilient learners.  Additionally, our guiding school and classroom expectations seek to promote “learning ready” conditions.  In simple terms, we ask that students take care of themselves, take care of others and take care of our school, classrooms and common spaces by practicing:

  • Safe Hands

  • Walking Feet

  • Watching Eyes/Eye Contact with Speaker

  • Listening Ears/Listening to the Speaker

  • Growing Minds/Growth Mindset

  • Kind Words

Our 2021-2022 school year intentions, inspired by the work of Dr. Amy Fast, seek to support students in exploring their hopes and dreams (Vision); focus on growth over grades (Learners, Not Finishers); do hard things (Productive Struggle); do fun things (Passion); invest in yourself (Ownership) and help others grow (Culture).

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time to be of support and assistance to your child and family.  We look forward to our ongoing partnership!

Sincerely,

Principal Meehan
