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, December 11, 2017:


The 2nd Grade Holiday Concert is this Thursday, and boy are they excited.  Nothing will get you into the holiday mood quicker!  The highlights of collaboration today included:  kindness (PS), plants and holiday traditions (K), combinations to 10 and letter writing (1st), singing at the Grange and supersentences (2nd), the chemical tests unit in science and the culminating project for Stone Fox (3rd), salmon research and story plot (4th) and finally 5th grade is working on indigenous people/colonies and comparing texts.


Today for collaboration the middle school staff met to continue our book talk. There is one group that is reading Hillbilly Elegy and another that is reading Mindset. We met together today so that each group could share their book with the group reading the other book. As small groups they summarized the chapters they just read and also shared some take aways or lessons that would valuable for educators.

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

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). 

Also check for area school delays and closures.
