Dear Students and Parents:
Welcome to the 2008 – 2009 School Year. This school year will be very exciting at Colonial Drive Elementary.
The Colonial Drive Elementary family of faculty and staff will be ready to help you with anything you need in order to make the school year more successful.
Our goal is always to give every student the best education while creating a school climate that fosters learning, pursuit of excellence and respect for others. During the 2008 -2009 School Year we will continue to implement our Character Education Program. There will also be other opportunities for learning before and after school, and for students who need the extra help.
We invite you to find out more about us by visiting our school’s website at cdes.dadeschools.net. The school website is a perfect place to find information about school activities and answers to basic questions. However, if you are unable to find an answer to your questions, please call the school at (305) 238-2392 or e-mail Mr. A. Dennis, our technical assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, we encourage you to create an account on the Parent Portal at dadeschools.net. This account will allow you to view your child(s) grades online, access to electronic textbooks and many other resources available to parents.
Pleas remember that communication between home and school is important to us and critical for the success of our students. I urge you to stay in touch with us and visit our website for up-to-date information and news.
I am looking forward to a very rewarding and exciting school year for everyone.
LAURA F. TENNANT, Principal
