Welcome to the Collings Lakes Elementary School and thank you for taking the time to explore our website. There are always new and exiting things going on here at our school. Our staff is committed to the school's motto "Simply the BEST!" Our Mission Statement - "We will make every attempt to set high educational standards to meet every child's potential and believe that all children can learn.

Each morning, students recite the daily pledge-

"Today, I promise to make good choices.

I promise to be respectful of others and be responsible for my words and actions

I promise to always try my best at school, at home, and in the world"

As the principal at CLES, I encourage and welcome families and members of our community to become actively involved in our school's activities. A strong School and Family partnership can only lead to increased student success!

We are very proud of our accomplishments and move forward to meet new challenges of the future. Please feel free to contact me either by phone or email - dbenedetto@buena.k12.nj.us.

I hope that you will enjoy your visit to our website!
