August 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year. As we start the new school year together on Monday, August 15, 2022, the staff at Columbia Elementary School looks forward to working with you and your child. Our Columbia staff strongly believes that the education of children is a partnership between the home and the school and that parent involvement is crucial to the success of our students. Please mark Thursday, August 18, 2022 for Columbia’s Back to School Night from 4:30 PM-5:45 PM where you will meet our staff and receive important information about the coming school year.

The Columbia Elementary office will extend their hours on Tuesday, August, 2 & 9, 2022 for registration.  The office will be open through 7:00 PM.

Class lists will be posted Thursday, August 11, 2022 on the office windows. These lists will indicate your child’s teacher and room number. No room changes will be made prior to Monday, August 29, 2022.  Please note that due to the possible enrollment changes we may need to create or collapse classrooms.  There is a possibility that your child may be moved to a different class. We will contact you if this occurs.
