We urge each parent/guardian that has a child attending Colbert School to please take the time to familiarize yourself with the school and meet your child's teacher.  Each teacher has a break between classes sometime during the day and this would be a wonderful time for you to schedule a meeting to visit with the teacher to discuss your child's studies and individual needs.  If you are not able to visit with the teacher in person during the day, please take the time to telephone the teacher  to check on your child's progress, or check out the new service on the website provided by the school showing your child's grades.   The administration and staff of Colbert School each have a desire to help your child reach their full potential. 

We believe what is most valuable, is not WHAT we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives! Our children are our most valuable asset. Let’s all work together to help each child achieve their dreams!
