From The Principal

Welcome to April! It is hard to believe we are onto the final months of the school year, but there is still much in store for us.

We would like to thank everyone for the great participation with “March is Reading Month”! Our students read and learned the importance of “loving to read” during March, that’s amazing! Please continue to encourage your child to read throughout the year, read to you at home and share your love of reading with each other.

This Spring our students in grades 3rd- 6th will be taking part in MSTEP & MIAccess Michigan State Assessments. Specific information and testing dates will be coming home from individual grade levels. It is very important that students will be in school and on time on these days. Please make every effort to have them here. If you know in advance your child will not be in school on a testing day please notify the office and your child’s teacher. Thank You! All students in K-6th grade will also be completing their Spring NWEA Assessments as well by the end of May.

We have numerous field trips, field days, activities and events planned over the next few months. Please continue to watch for specific information on these events from your classroom teachers as well.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Kleiner
Collins Elementary Principal
