    I hope this communication finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Continental Colony Elementary School for the 2021 academic year. As we approach the opening of this school year, please rest assured we have taken the best of our virtual experiences in the spring to develop the best virtual learning plan and experience for our families. We are looking forward to the opening of the CCES Virtual Learning Hub at 8:00am Monday, August 24, 2020.

    Whether instruction is virtual, hybrid, or face-to-face our mission continues, to develop compassionate and knowledgeable life-long learners through the progressive implementation of rigorous instruction and assessment. We will continue to ensure we prepare our little panthers with the skills necessary to be successful in this ever-changing world. I know the Continental Colony Community supports the faculty and staff with this mission. We are CCES STRONG! Together we will increase life chances.

    In preparation for DAY 1 we ask you to join us for the CCES Virtual Open House this Sunday, August 16, 2020 at 3:00pm on Facebook LIVE @ContinentalColonyATL. You will learn about our plans for quality and engaging instruction for this school year. You will also receive a call this week to give you the name of your child's teacher, your child's login information, learning bin and device distribution dates, and steps you can take to ensure your child is equipped with the technology needed to engage in the virtual learning experience. The Grade Level Open House date will be Monday, August 17, 2020. The times and Zoom links will be sent through ClassDojo and through a ROBO text and email.

    We will continue the hard work and dedication needed to carry out the mission of Continental Colony Elementary School. I am humbled to serve as your principal. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 404-802- 8000 or kristen.vaughn@atlanta.k12.ga.us.

    Together We Will Increase Life Chances!
