From The Principal

Collins’ Families,

Our 2021-2022 school year has come to a close.  I would like to thank our entire school community for a remarkable school year filled with many successes and unforgettable memories. 

If  you happen to drive by our building, you will notice we are in the thick of construction.  The moment our door closed on June 10th, the work began.  Crews are and will continue to work on improving our school home.  Some changes you will see in the fall will include a brand new front office and secured entry.  You will also see new carpet and flooring in our classrooms along with new cabinetwork.  Our cubs will be enjoying a brand new gym floor as well.  Finally, by fall you will see a brand new and extremely improved parking lot!

We hope you have a wonderful summer and we look forward to another great school year come fall. 
 

Best Regards,

Jena Lenz

Collins’ Principal
