Principal's Message

A Message from the Principal

Jean Callison Elementary is proud to celebrate 30 years of providing excellence in education. As a first-generation college student and Elementary Principal, I strongly believe that ALL students can learn and deserve to be educated in a way that prepares them for college and career. No EXCUSES! Callison faculty and staff share the same belief system and are passionate about academic achievement, teaching great character, PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports), and fostering lifelong learners. Our goal is to develop successful, productive, and caring students. We pride ourselves in aiding students in mastering skills associated with critical thinking, resilience, communication, and hard work ethics.

Our number one goal at Callison is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level which results in academic proficiency in the core areas of reading, writing, and math. We facilitate student driven learning while teaching rich and rigorous content in English, math, science, history, and the arts. Multiple strategies are used within our classrooms to differentiate instruction and engage every student so that we may prepare them for college and future careers. Faculty engage in weekly collaboration with one another, keeping students' needs in mind to drive them towards empowerment.

Academic success, creativity, and leadership through character are showcased with student recognition assemblies each month. Students have opportunities during and after school to participate in our STOMP musical choir, Girls on the Run Club, academic interventions, Homework Club, Bright and Early Book Club, Novel Knowledge Team, among various other activities.

Callison has a very active Parent Teacher Committee (PTC) that host monthly enrichment activities that contribute to our positive school culture. The activities range from schoolwide social events such as an Ice Cream Social & Book Exchange, Dances, and Fun Runs to fundraisers to assist with the purchase of school supplies and technology programs. As a result of parent and community generous donations, school fundraisers, academic and extracurricular activities continue to enhance the positive school experience for our students.

Faculty and Staff at Callison believe every child can achieve academic success and encourage to visit the Cougar Cave and seen the awesome things happenings at our school. We welcome you to Callison Elementary, where "Every Student, and Every Moment Counts!"

Go Cougars!

Cheerfully,

Principal Reed
