Message from the Superintendent
 
Summer is now well under way! As everyone takes some time to rest and recharge, CCPS wants to make sure students have learning activities to help them Gear Up for the Next School Year. These engaging district-developed activities are voluntary and will preview upcoming instructional content while providing opportunities for students to practice skills that will help them to be successful in school next year. Visit www.collierschools.com/GearUp to learn more.
 
The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) recently released third grade Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) English Language Arts results. Despite the unique challenges of the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our District maintained focus and continues to excel in academic achievement. CCPS outperformed the state in the percentage of students scoring at level 3 or above. We are #CCPSProud of the resilience and hard work of individual students, schools, and the overall District performance.
 
If you have an incoming Pre-K or Kindergarten student or know of someone who has a child that will be a new student to the District, we encourage early completion of the student registration process. Waiting until the last minute may delay a child's ability to start school on the first day. Visit www.collierschools.com/registration for a list of required documents and instructions for the easy online registration process.
 
Continue enjoying your summer!

The YMCA (the Y) is a nonprofit organization committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility while focusing on the holistic approach of spirit, mind, and body. With two campuses, one on Marco Island and one in Naples, and several satellite programs, the YMCA serves thousands of seniors, adults, families, and children every day. In Collier County, the Y works to provide support for all, regardless of age, income, or background, in hopes that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
 
The Y provides a menu of diverse facilities and unique programs. Locally, it offers out-of-school programs, a variety of summer camps, adult and youth sports, literacy education, civic engagement programs, disease prevention and management programs, water safety and drowning prevention, disaster/pandemic assistance, food distribution, community engagement through volunteer opportunities, and so much more. As a community collaborator, the Y works with others to best serve Collier County. It works to build a stronger community, stronger families, and stronger kids!
