From The Principal

Collins’ Families,

The month of February finds us just beyond the halfway point of our school year. Our second half is underway, and we continue to focus our instructional efforts to ensure every child achieves at Collins. While every day, your child is immersed in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies, our focus on our ability to problem solve and think critically is becoming more crucial than ever before. Our team is consistently working with your children to become critical thinkers and avid problem solvers. We appreciate our partnership with all of you in creating successful citizens.

Best Regards,

Jena Lenz

Collins’ Principal
