Bond Facilities Update

Thank you to the Columbia School District community for their overwhelming support in passing the construction bond.  This gift to the students and staff in our district is largely going towards remodeling our elementary multipurpose room into a dedicated cafeteria, adding staff bathrooms, adding new elementary classrooms, and constructing a new gym. 

Our architects have worked tirelessly with our school board to determine the new site and agree upon the general design for our elementary facilities.  Now that the school board approved the basic design, below is a link to the drawings.  We will change and update the website drawings from time-to-time as we move forward toward the realization of an exciting addition and renovation for Columbia Elementary School, which we plan to complete in preparation for the winter of 2018.

This Week's Teacher Collaboration News

Monday, October 23, 2017:

COLUMBIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -

No Report

COLUMBIA MIDDLE SCHOOL -

Today during Collaboration a group of our teachers met and began our book talk around the Mindset book by Carol Dweck. We focused on chapters 1 & 2 which introduced the growth and fixed mindset concept. Each teacher took a personal mindset survey as well as one that showed their classroom mindset. Our conversation centered around what we do as a school system that contributes to a fixed or growth mindset, as well as how our personal mindset was either consistent or different from our classroom mindset. 

COLUMBIA HIGH SCHOOL -

For the 10/23 collaboration session at Columbia High School the staff worked together on two main activities. The first was a protocol session based on the article “Formula for a Successful Teaching Day” by Stephen Beyer.  Staff collaboratively reviewed the information contained in the article, compared present actions with those recommended, and shared best practices with the group.   The second main activity was preparing for Red Ribbon Week, a week that targets drug education for students.  Staff will be encouraging students to participate in several anti-drug activities through the week.

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).
