 2017-2018 Principal's Message from Dr. Cheri Beth Fisher
"Shine!" with Cold Harbor Elementary

Welcome to Cold Harbor Elementary, a great place to learn and grow!  Big things are happening here, and we are so excited that you are interested in and part of what we do. Each year our school community selects a theme that describes us and our focus for the year ahead.  Our theme for 2017-18 is "Let Your Light Shine." This simple phrase has deep meaning for our staff as we plan every aspect of the school year.  First and foremost, we hope this year's theme conveys our dedication to recognizing and developing students who are kind, honest, responsible, generous and hard-working. We know that character is what truly shines and brightens our world. Furthermore, we selected this theme because we believe that every student we serve has a unique skill set that provides a foundation for future success.
It is our responsibility to develop an awareness of these skills and capitalize on them so that each child shines brighter in his/her own way. By encouraging students to continue to think big with consistent opportunities to solve problems,
communicate with one another, collaborate on tasks, think critically and flexibly, and persevere through challenging tasks,
we hope to provide students with opportunities to shine in new ways too.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal for a fifth year.  Since joining the Cold Harbor family, I have witnessed what makes our school such a wonderful place.  Rich traditions, caring staff members, an active and generous PTA, community partnerships, and dedication to high quality instruction are just some of the factors that have led to the tradition of excellence at Cold Harbor. 
It is my goal to partner with you to continue to enrich the elementary school experience for your child(ren).
Throughout the 2017-18 school year, we ask that you continue to work alongside us to protect the values and traditions that are important to Cold Harbor while considering how we can continuously improve upon educational opportunities we provide to our students.

Thank you for sharing your children with us each school day. 
If there is ever a time I can assist you in making your child's experience at Cold Harbor more positive,
please contact me at 804.723.3620 or 

We can't wait to see your child SHINE this year!
