This Week's Teacher Collaboration News

Monday, February 13, 2017:

COLUMBIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -Please remember to vote by tomorrow, Tuesday the 14th!  This week there is a lot going on at the elementary school.  Today, Mr. Yale and four teacher are at the regional Science Leadership Network.  The group is planning a really interesting and engaging interactive exhibit for the elementary school…stay tuned for the excitement!  Additionally, this Friday is Grandparent’s Day…talk about exciting.  This event is always a wonderful celebration of our children, their families and community.  Call the elementary school if you need any details. 

COLUMBIA MIDDLE SCHOOL - A number of teachers met to discuss topics ranging from student discipline and student led conferences. Staff also shared what they have been learning at different trainings they have attended.

COLUMBIA HIGH SCHOOL - At the 2/13 collaboration session at Columbia HS, there were two main topics that the staff focused on.  The first was student attendance.  We reviewed our own data from the first semester, and also studied suggestions from the Association of Washington School Principals regarding how to partner with students and families to encourage better school attendance.  The second portion of collaboration included planning for changes to the schedule based on recent snow closure days.

 

Weather Delay & Closure Notifications

Watch this page for any school delays or closures during our winter season. We will be posting the details in a scrolling banner.


Parents, staff and students wishing to receive Columbia School District weather closure/delay announcements via email, text message, or push notification can sign up by going to
http://flashalert.net/id/ColumbiaSD.

When you get to that page, start the process by entering your email address and setting a password. Once the account is established, you may add one or two additional email or cell text addresses. Each new entry will require you to launch a test message to that address which will contain a two-letter code which must be entered back onto your account page to ensure that the address(es) is valid, or by clicking the link in the message. Keep in mind that the cell phone companies can get backlogged on weather mornings as they try to keep up with the text messages, so it is recommended that you not rely entirely on text messages. We recommend you download the new, free app for iOS and Android called FlashAlert Messenger. It uses push notification to send messages directly to your phone, bypassing the cell companies' text message channel. Search for FlashAlert Messenger at the iTunes App Store (iOS) or at Google Play (Android).
