2016-17 School Year Welcome Letter

Dear Columbia Elementary School Families,

I am thrilled to begin my twelfth year as Columbia Elementary Principal!

Educational partnerships make a positive difference. The teachers and staff at Columbia Elementary are 100% committed to your child’s educational success. It is our mission to support your child whatever way possible. Columbia Elementary is fortunate to have an excellent staff and resources to support students and their families. Remember, “Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students”. We know you share this huge investment in your child’s education, so please make it a priority to communicate with your child’s teachers. Be sure to ask what is being taught and how you can best support the learning at home.

Last summer was very busy with construction taking place in all district buildings. At Columbia Elementary we were blessed with a totally remodeled building. The main office was moved and a remodeled with a secured entry, a sickroom for kids waiting for pick-up, new secured pre-school/latchkey entry, new bathrooms and plumbing, new lockers, security cameras and best of all Wi-Fi throughout the building.

Last year with the district reconfiguration, Columbia Elementary became a pre-school through second grade. Becoming CES P-2 gives us the opportunity to really focus on early literacy and provide the differentiation and interventions to ensure every student is on-level at the beginning of third grade. To support this concept, we have two full-time Reading Recovery teachers and this year, with support from a literacy grant we are adding support at kindergarten. What great support for our kindergarten, first and second graders!

The 2016-2017 school year will include many opportunities for parents to volunteer their time and skills. I encourage you to take advantage of this unique time to share in your child’s life and become active at Columbia Elementary. Research indicates that parent involvement is the key to student success. Why not join the CES PTO, become an adult mentor in Brooklyn Buddies or volunteer in your child’s classroom? I welcome every parent to become involved and make a difference at CES!

Thanks to those of you who committed time to CES this past year, I look forward to working with you again! If we have yet to meet, please be sure to stop by CES and attend our Back to School Bash/Open House scheduled for August 22nd, as I’m looking forward to meeting you and connecting with all our families. This will allow me to better serve all the students and teachers at Columbia Elementary.

Welcome to Columbia Elementary and to a great school year!

~ Deb Powell
