Principal's Message



Message from Principal Latonya Square

Welcome to the start of a new academic year at our beloved school, which the Yellow Jackets proudly call home. I am deeply honored to serve as the principal for the 2023-2024 school year, and I am truly excited about the incredible journey that lies ahead. I need each of you, as we strive to move CES higher than ever before. Education is the key to success and the foundation for a bright future. It is the foundation upon which our future is built. It is through education that we can truly shape a better world, one student at a time. As Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

At Colerain Elementary, we believe in inspiring the next generation. We strive to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where each child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our dedicated teachers and staff work tirelessly to ignite a love for learning in every student. We understand that education is not only about textbooks and exams, but also about nurturing curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills.

The world is rapidly changing, and the skills our students need are constantly evolving. To prepare them for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, we have implemented innovative teaching methods and incorporated technology into our classrooms. We are committed to equipping our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the 21st century. We are aiming to move our school from 42.4 proficiency to 65% proficiency. 

But education is not just the responsibility of the school. It takes a village to raise a child, and we need the support of parents, guardians, and the community to ensure the success of our students. Together, we can inspire the next generation to reach their highest potential. We also recognize the importance of building a strong and supportive community. Our school actively collaborates with parents, guardians, and the wider community to ensure that our students receive the best possible education. Together, we can create a nurturing environment to help our students thrive.

As we begin this new school year, I urge every one of you to believe in yourselves, your students, and your children and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. Remember, education is not just a destination; it is a lifelong journey of growth and discovery. Together, let us strive for excellence and create a future filled with success and endless possibilities. Education is the key to unlocking a world of possibilities. It empowers individuals, transforms communities, and shapes the future. Let us join hands and work together to provide our children with the best education possible. As William Butler Yeats once said, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Let us light the fire of knowledge and ignite the passion for learning in every child. Thank you and may we continue to inspire the next generation to reach for the stars.

Thank you, and may this academic year be filled with success, inspiration, and the promise of a bright future for all.
