Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Cheri Beth Fisher

Welcome to Cold Harbor Elementary, a great place to learn and grow! Wonderful things are happening here, and we are so excited that you are interested in and part of what we do. As a school, our mission is to ignite a love of learning and empower our students to become the best version of themselves. We want our students to recognize and be confident in their own greatness so that they have the opportunity to thrive, be recognized, and contribute to our larger school community. Each year we select a theme that describes us and our focus for the year ahead. Our theme for 2020–2021 is “Together We Can!” This simple statement aims to reflect the integral role every individual plays in our collective success. There is no denying that 2020 has been a difficult and challenging year for us as individuals and as a global community. Right now, we must unify! By recognizing and valuing the differences, gifts, and strengths of each individual in our Cold Harbor family, we can teach our next generation how to find value in others and how to work together to overcome challenges. 

It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal again this 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 enrich your child(ren)’s elementary school experience. Throughout the 2020–2021 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 by email

Together we can make this a phenomenal school year!
