Cotton Indian Elementary
“Inspiring Greatness, One Child at a Time”
Principal Welcome Letter
Welcome to 2020-2021!
As we plan for the 2020-2021 school year, our focus will be to ensure that:
Every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected,
Every child, every day is being challenged by new learning and experiences,
In addition, every child, every day knows they have they support from each member of our school staff.
In the spring, we (staff, students and school community) were challenged to find a new normal for learning while still staying connected. What I most learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise of our teachers at CIE, the ways in which our students continued to work through adversity and the appreciation and patience of our school community.
Cotton Indian Elementary strives to Inspire Greatness, One Child at a Time, which we know is why you entrust us with the education of your student(s). Our staff prides itself in ensuring that our students take part in leadership roles and rigorous learning opportunities on a daily basis. Leaders come in all shapes and sizes and at any point in time. Teacher leaders will support students every day, with relationships built over time and ensure that your student has exactly what they need when they need it.
Our top priorities are aligned to our district student outcomes:
- Priority Outcome 1:
- HCS will advance opportunities, access, and outcomes for every student group in literacy proficiency at every grade.
- Priority Outcome 2:
- HCS will advance opportunities, access, and outcomes for every student group in readiness to learn at every level.
- Priority Outcome 3:
- HCS will advance opportunities, access, and outcomes for every student group in college, career, and life-ready skills post-graduation.
Communication will be key this year. Our school web page will be the hub for all communication. Calling posts, Remind accounts, teachers’ web pages/virtual classrooms as well as the District web page will be used to ensure our communication lines are clear.
I am proud to be your principal, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions and/or concerns.
