Circle Michigan Foundation Announces Grant & Scholarship Recipients
The Circle Michigan Foundation has awarded a grant for the 2014-2015 school year. The transportation grant has been presented to a K-12 school group to assist with field-trip transportation costs to Michigan attractions.
Principal Debra Powell with Columbia Elementary School received a $500 transportation grant to help take the fourth grade class of Columbia Elementary school to Hartwick Pines Logging Museum, Mackinac Historic Parks, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and Whitefish Point in May 2015.
"The focus of the trip is to bring Michigan history and the school curriculum alive for fourth grade students. The three day trip which is held every May enables every fourth grade student to experience history and gain historical knowledge by visiting sites within the Circle Michigan Foundation."

CAN YOU HELP? Volunteers Needed
Columbia Elementary School is seeking volunteer mentors for our one-to-one Buddies program. The program utilizes community volunteers to assist students who are having difficulty in language arts and or basic math. Volunteers will be working with Kindergarten and First grade students, helping them to become successful readers and confident students. Sessions are held every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30-9:00, 9:10-9:40 and 9:50-10:20. Training is available and a background check is required. For more information, call Brooklyn Buddies at 517-592-5131.

NEW! Columbia Elementary School Young Fives Program
The Columbia Elementary Young 5’s program is a program designed to meet the educational and developmental needs of children who will turn five years old by October 1st of a given calendar year, but who are not yet ready for a traditional Kindergarten Program.

The program is being developed in response to a perceived need in the community for a program that bridges the gap between preschool and an ever more demanding Kindergarten curriculum, especially for those children on the younger end of the five year old spectrum. The introduction of the all-day, every day Kindergarten program may also contribute to the need for such a program.

The program is child-centered and provides additional time for emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth through activities that foster development in these areas:

  • Creative Expression: art, music, literature, and natural world

  • Social Development: interacting with others, helping, sharing, taking turns, playing cooperatively, culture, and citizenship

  • Intellectual Development: thinking, planning, problem solving, comparing, reasoning, drawing conclusions, numbers, symbols, and science

  • Physical Development: small and large muscle development, nutrition, and safety

The curriculum and learning environment support the developmental needs of each student, and prepares each child for success in Kindergarten the following school year. Please click here to view flyer.

Welcome letter from Principal Deb Powell

I am thrilled to begin my tenth 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 in whatever way we can. 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.

The 2014-2015 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!

It has been a very busy summer with construction taking place in all district buildings. I am happy to report that CES has a new roof, soffits and trim. The down pour we had a few days ago was the big test and I am happy to report, no leaks! New parking lots, bus parking, bus driveway and completely new paving between CES and CMS is presently under construction with expected completion just in time for school to begin.

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, 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!
