• Dear Cotton Indian Elementary Parents and Community,                             July 29, 2019


    Welcome Back! We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Cotton Indian family. This promises to be a year filled with leadership opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!

    During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of data driven decision making aligned to the Henry County Schools Teaching and Learning Standards. Our vision remains……..

    Inspiring Greatness, One Child at a Time

    We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

    As we enter year five of being the only Leader in Me school in Henry County, we will continue to model and teach 7 Habits of Highly Effective people: Being Proactive; Beginning with the End in Mind; Putting First Things First; Thinking Win/Win; Seeking First to Understand, Then to Be Understood; Synergizing; and Sharpening the Saw. We believe that in addition to possessing the traits of knowledge, individuals who are truly thriving in today’s reality are those who are also good listeners and team builders.  We will draw upon the talents of the whole school- all staff members and all students- and optimize the support of our parents and community.

    Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day! The dedicated Cotton Indian staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and it is truly our honor to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social-emotional growth.


    Proud Principal,

    Lisa Travis
