Thank you for your interest in Colonial Drive Elementary School. 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. Colonial Drive is dedicated to serving all children, and to that end, we offer Special Student Education (SPED) classes, as well as courses for Gifted (Cougar Path) students. In addition, we address students’ social/emotional needs as well as their academic needs.
We offer personalized classroom settings tailored to student needs and modern classroom environments that support rigorous, relevant content needed by our students to become successful in today’s ever changing, knowledge-based economy. We have various extracurricular activities that include a Gardening club (herb, vegetable and fruit garden) and World Cuisine Cooking classes (Cooks with Books). 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.
Please remember that communication between home and school is important to us and critical for the success of our students. We invite you to find out more about us by visiting our school’s website at http://cdes.dadeschools.net. The school website is a perfect place to find information about school activities and answers to basic questions. I encourage you to stay in touch with us and visit our website for up-to-date information and news.
We hope you select Colonial Drive Elementary as your child’s school, and I look forward to meeting you at one of our many school activities.
