Dear College Park Elementary School Community,
 
Welcome Back! 
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children. All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. And, our much-appreciated PTA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

Student Placement
A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2019-2020 school year. 
Careful consideration was given to input from teachers, administrators and families as well as student learning styles. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level.  Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities. ALL of our staff are prepared to work hard to ensure school is a positive experience for ALL students. College Park is eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. We appreciate your understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, peer group and teacher.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. We value your commitment to ensuring that College Park Elementary is celebrated and in gear for our 2019-2020 journey to success. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

Truly,

Maisha Otway Ed.D
