  • Hello, 6th Grade Bearcats! 

    I know you all are very excited and a little nervous coming to middle school. This is a new world to you but don't be afraid because all the teachers, administrators and I are here to help. This will be a fantastic year!

    I know you have grown and have matured a whole lot and will take your education more seriously now, right? Of course, you will. EDUCATION OPENS THE DOORS...TO THE WORLD. This is the title I gave to my inspirational wall of pictures. Stop by my office to see the photos of the 30+ countries I've visited in the last 8 years. I know you can do it, too if you set your goals high, work hard, and put your education above many other less important things in your life.

    Parents, this is my pleasure to continue serving your students. I hope to get to know you even better this year. I strongly believe in cooperation and teamwork between parents and school personnel. Only working together we can guide our students in the direction of developing their full potential.

    Please never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. No issue regarding your child is too small or unimportant for me. Remember, we are on the same team and have the same goal.

    Sincerely, and with anticipation of a great school year,

    Mrs. Kolesnikov
