Welcome to our Collegewood Cougar Webpage!

Dear Partners in Learning,

It is with great pleasure that I begin my second year as the proud principal of Collegewood Elementary School!  I hope that you all enjoyed your summer break and are ready for another exciting school year!  We eagerly welcome our new and returning families and staff back to school! 

Our school is an extraordinary learning community!  We have so many reasons to be proud of our teaching and learning environment.  Last year, we celebrated many accomplishments including our participation in the Cal Poly Robotics Rally, the creation of our new school vision for 21st Century teaching and learning, and the honor of being a recipient of the California Businesses for Excellence in Education Honor Roll. 

We look forward to another year of going “Above & Beyond” to provide every student with his/her optimal education experience.  As we begin our journey to fully implement the new Common Core State Standards, the Collegewood Staff is excited about utilizing the “5 Cs-Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Citizenship” to provide your child with a learning environment that prepares them for their future!  Teaching and learning in Collegewood classrooms provides the skills, knowledge and expertise students must master to succeed in work and life.  This year teachers and students will work together to solve real world problems that make the education process rigorous and relevant.

We are committed to working collaboratively with you, our parents, to provide results oriented instruction that focuses on the success and achievement of every student.  We count on you to partner with us to continue to implement our vision to provide a 21st Century education to each child.  We highly encourage you to take an active role in the academic growth of your children by reading to your children, monitoring the completion of homework, having rich and robust conversations, and providing meaningful experiences that build their background knowledge. 

Please know my door is always open and that you are welcome to come to volunteer any time!

Thank you for sharing your child with us!

For our kids,

Joan Perez, N.B.C.T



Principal
