What people are saying about Combs Traditional Academy
A Message from our Principal
It is finally starting to feel like the winter! This is one of my favorite times of the year, with the Thanksgiving and winter holidays, which go so well with our character counts pillar of the month, caring.
I am thankful for the support and caring of our Combs Traditional Academy community. Our student council recently completed another successful food drive and our National Elementary Honor Society completed their first clothing drive. Both drives were student driven, but could not have been successful without your donations. The J.O. Combs Food and Clothing Bank gratefully received the items, and they will go back out to families in need within our J.O. Combs community.
I am grateful for the staff with whom I work. Their smiles and the care with which they put into the school and the children in our charge are an inspiration to me. We are fortunate to have such a tremendous group of adults that work with our children.
I am thankful for the children with whom we work. Their hugs, smiles, and greetings bring warmth to the cold days! I love to see how much they love to learn and challenge themselves when I visit the classrooms. They, too, are an inspiration to me!
Finally, I am thankful for the collaboration we have between our parents and teachers, especially with our PTO. They help celebrate our staff birthdays, recognize our staff with dinner at conferences, and supply our Art Masterpiece program. We have two upcoming PTO programs which are always wonderful events, but they don’t happen without your involvement! Please consider, in this time of thanksgiving and generosity, giving your time to bingo night or the sweetheart dance. You can contact our front office if you have an interest in volunteering, and we can follow up with PTO.
The holidays are always busy times of the year. Thank you for your tireless efforts on our behalf. We truly couldn’t be the school we are without you.
Thank you, and happy holidays!
