Welcome to Columbia Elementary School - Home of the Rockets.
Columbia Elementary is an AVID Elementary School. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is a program that teaches students the necessary skills they need in order to be successful beyond Columbia. AVID teaches our scholars organization, accountability, and specific note-taking/study skills that will benefit them as they move into secondary and higher education.
At Columbia we want all our scholars reading by third grade. Reading is a foundational skill that all scholars need in order to build upon and grow within all the other disciplines. Our goal is to ensure every child leaves Columbia Elementary as a well-rounded scholar with a love for learning and aspirations for college and career. We want our scholars to know that they can be whatever they want to be and we want to help guide them on the path that will help them to meet their goals and accomplish their dreams.
This is sure to be an exciting year. We look forward to providing the safest and most effective environment for learning as possible for our scholars and staff. We count heavily on parent support and encourage you to get involved in your child’s education. Please join our various different family groups, where you have a voice in your child’s education. We have PTO (Parent Teacher Organization), ELAC (English Language Advisory Council), SSC (School Site Council). We will also be hosting various different events where you can meet the principal, and get to know our teachers and campus. We look forward to working with you this year.
Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
