Dear Panther Families:
My name is Sandy Larson, the Principal at Colonel Smith. It is an honor to be a part of the CSMS family. As Principal, I aim to inspire all educators, students, parents, and community members to find the joy in learning. I believe we are all lifelong learners with different learning styles. I believe each student is capable of learning. Each student is unique who needs a safe, caring, and challenging environment to grow intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially. We must educate the “whole child” so that each student can develop a love for learning, respect for self and others, and an enthusiasm for life that will lead to success.
Please use this handbook as an informational source pertaining to policies and procedures at Colonel Smith. I look forward to meeting you and encourage you to stop by if you have any questions or concerns about our school or your student.
Again, we welcome you to the CSMS family. Our wonderful professional learning community is available to ensure every student succeeds in school. Colonel Smith is a place alive with energy, enthusiasm, and high expectations! We look forward to an EXCITING school year!
