Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year, 500 Building families!
It is my pleasure to welcome our new and returning scholars and families back to school. I hope everyone has had a relaxing and enjoyable summer! We can’t wait to see everyone soon.
We are excited to begin our first day of school starting August 24th for our 5th Grade scholars and August 25th for 6th Graders. It is part of our vision to inspire, motivate, and lead all scholars to success; by fostering a community of high expectations, commitment, and love. We have a fantastic team of dedicated teachers ready to greet our scholars and provide them with the best learning experiences possible. They have planned and prepared classrooms these past weeks to ensure optimal learning. In addition, this year, we have adopted two new curricula: EL Education for literacy and Eureka2 for math. Both curricula offer opportunities for scholars to engage in hands-on, meaningful lessons geared to building problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and analytical reading and writing skills. We hope our scholars will flourish to their fullest potential and enjoy our curricula’s meaningful learning experiences.
We would like to welcome again our new member to the 500 Building administration team, Mr. Dan Fowlkes. We are thrilled he will lead our building as our Dean of Culture & Climate. You can expect our entire administration team to collaborate with you to promote a supportive, productive, and enriching school culture. Our leadership staff has been working very hard all summer to ensure teachers receive quality professional development so that they are equipped with the skills to support the academic and socio-emotional needs of your child/ren. As we embrace the new year with a growth mindset, ensuring we will continue to develop a learning environment based on high expectations and excellence for everyone.
You can always visit our website for information about the 500 Building. Additionally, we will continue to use the following platforms for ongoing communication:
- Monthly Cougar Newsletters
- Class Dojo
Please reference the school calendar for important dates throughout this school year. I also created a helpful School Opening Reminders PDF that covers uniforms, supply lists, backpacks, schedules, and more!
I look forward to working with you in our joint partnership toward academic success for Collegium’s 500 scholars. Together, we will make this school year successful. Thank you in advance for your support.
