A message from the Principal

Dear Families,

It is an honor to be the Principal at a school that focuses on the following priorities -
  1. To create an atmosphere where our families feel welcome and our students feel happy, safe and loved as soon as they enter the doors of Colina.  

  2. To provide engaging and rigorous learning opportunities for all of our students. 

Your children’s academic, social and behavioral success is at the forefront of all we do. We know that when we create a trusting relationship with our families, and children love coming to school, we are achieving our goal. 


What an amazing night we had at Fifth Grade Astronomy Night!  I want to thank all of our students and families who were able to attend.  We learned star names, saw constellations and listened to stories of the night sky through an indoor presentation. We also had the opportunity to go outside to view the moon, planets, star clusters, nebula, galaxies and more through telescopes. 


Thank you to our Colina Community for participating in our annual SOUP-er Bowl Canned Food Drive. Through your generation donations, we collected a total of 1,076 canned foods and non-perishable food items for the Kyrene Family Resource Center.  This truly shows the giving hearts of our families.  We also predicted the winner of the Super Bowl!  We had 592 cans on the Patriots side and 484 cans on the Falcons side.  Whether your team won or not, it was a good game!  


Thank you for continuing to pour your hearts out to Colina.  By working together, we are achieving greatness!

Kelley A. Brunner
Proud Principal of Kyrene de la Colina Elementary School
