We are so proud of our students--they are always thinking of how they can help others.

Collier High School students are doing their part to create change through their "Change for a Change" initiative. Students and staff will donate their spare change to help raise funds to donate to those affected by the war in Ukraine. Collier School will kick off this event by wearing blue and yellow on May 3rd.

Keep up the inspirational work!
