Compass Learning
Looking for additional ways to help support your student(s) at home???  Compass Learning is a solution...  Your student's Fall 2014 MAP scores were loaded into Compass, so they are currently working at their independent level. When they re-test MAP prior to Winter Break, new scores will be updated. We use Compass Learning here at Collins Lane to help differentiate content in the classroom. This may come in the form of enrichment, remediation or even working towards mastery of content, here at school.  However, you can use it from a computer or tablet at home too!  Each grade level has access to Language Arts and Math; but some grade levels have access to other areas as well.  Every student has their unique login information. (username: student id # and password: birthdate) For more specific information, check out the Compass Note. If you need any further information or have trouble logging your student in, please contact his/her homeroom teacher. With your continued support outside of school, our students will continue to grow academically!  
Watchdogs Kick-Off
On Thursday, October 23, 2014 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. we will be having our 2nd annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pasta Night at our school. You will meet here at the school cafeteria at 6:00 p.m. for Pasta and drinks. At 6:30 p.m. we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S. ® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. WATCH D.O.G.S. ® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears. 

We had GREAT success and support with this program last year and look forward to its success this school year!

Liebman wins CLE teacher of the year
It is with great pride and excitement we announce Ms. Beth Liebman as our 2013-2014 Collins Lane Elementary Teacher of the Year! Ms. Liebman has held various positions in the educational field for the past 33 years. 11 of those 33 have been with us at Collins Lane. For the past 9 years, Ms. Liebman has taught Kindergarten, Third and Fourth grades. She has held many leadership positions over the years, Teacher Leader's Network, Writing Cluster Leader, Academic Team Coach and many more. A former administrator wrote, "Beth Liebman is the type of elementary teacher that inspires children to come to school each day. She is loving, kind and authentic. She exudes joy. Beth builds relationships with every child crossing her path working to meet them at their point of need, academically and otherwise." Ms. Liebman is a reader, a writer, a thinker and a role model who willingly shares her her gift with the world. In her final year before retirement, we wish you well Ms. Liebman! Thank you for your time, efforts and most of all dedication to our students.
