From The Principal

As we set off on a new year, the Collins staff continues its commitment to every student. We are working hard at providing new and exciting opportunities for our students to be active participants in their education. Part of this growth includes the importance of reading. Please continue to encourage your child
to read, read, and read some more! I understand how busy family life can be after school… homework, dance, basketball, etc…! But ten minutes a day, when your children can read to you or with you makes an enormous impact! Make it a New Year’s goal to increase the amount of reading shared among you and your children.

Our Mission

With the support of the community, the mission of Bruce Collins Elementary is to foster a caring and enriching environment that enables all students to grow academically and socially to reach their individual potential as they become lifelong learners.

Parent teacher conferences provide an important opportunity to strengthen relationships with your child’s teacher.

Parents will receive report cards at the conferences.
