Step Up to 3rd Grade Summer Program

Step Up to 3rd Grade is a summer school program being offered for this year’s second graders. It is a great way to help your child strengthen their academic skills over the summer. If you have not already enrolled your child and would like to, please stop by the office and complete a registration form. This is a free summer program, with an emphasis on using technology with reading, writing and math. It is designed for and open to all incoming 3rd graders.

Keeping Our Students Healthy

We are taking steps to reduce the spread of flu and colds at Columbus Elementary. Here is what you can do to help:

  • Teach your child to wash their hands often.
  • Teach your child to cover coughs and sneezes with tissue or to cough into their elbow.
  • Teach your child not to share personal items.
  • Know the signs and symptoms of the flu.
  • Keep sick children home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever.
  • Do not send children to school if they are sick.

Attendance is important but so are healthy children!
