Dear Columbus Families,
Greetings and welcome to Columbus Elementary School, home of the Sharks! I am thrilled that you decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff and programs we have to offer. Columbus Elementary has established a tradition of excellence and we will continue to strive to become the best.
As you enter our website, you will notice that all of our teachers have created and maintain a webpage to keep parents abreast of news relevant to their classrooms. Many are new to this, so your patience as we learn is greatly appreciated. We are committed to providing innovative lessons to our students, incorporating technology in order to meet the needs of the 21st century learner.
Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience. While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, social emotional support and exposure to the technologies in order to prepare students to compete with their global counterparts.
We encourage you to visit our awesome little school and see that we are a school committed to children. You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners. To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic success of your child. I encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get engaged in all that Columbus has to offer. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!
I look forward to working with you this year.
Mrs. Wendy Garr-Oleksy
