As parents seek an excellent learning environment for their children, one of the most important aspects they must evaluate is ensuring that their children are able to learn in an environment filled with quality. The school mission statement gives parents insight in to the district’s philosophy and values. The Columbia School District Mission Statement provides a clear vision into the goals and aspirations we strive for as a learning community combining the efforts of teachers, parents, administrators and staff members working together to reach for excellence in education.
The Columbia School District is working to emphasize our Mission Statement in everything we do to educate the children of our community. The Mission Statement gives us a lens through which to view the learning opportunities we offer to our students. The Columbia School District Mission indicates that the school will partner with the community. There are many ways that parents and businesses may partner with their child’s school. By participating in school activities, attending school musicals, band concerts and sporting events we may begin to support our students though a basic partnership. In addition, community members may partner with the school district by volunteering to assist in our reading Buddies program, help with school clean-up projects, join our Boosters organizations or PTO, support our coaches and teachers and donate to fundraising efforts.
The Mission Statement also ensures students that they will have the opportunity to learn in a safe and positive environment. Parents and community members may support teachers and staff members as we strive to keep our school learning environment positive and safe. Making sure that your children get enough sleep at night, benefit from proper nutrition and complete their school assignments will help them to be successful in school. Your encouraging words and hugs will help to build your child’s self-esteem and prepare them be successful in our safe, positive classroom learning environment.
Children who grow up in a learning environment where excellence in education is emphasized, and students have positive reinforcement will be ready to become contributing members in our global society. The Columbia School District teachers and staff members strive to prepare their students to compete in our increasingly technological society. As parents and supportive community members you can help our students reach their maximum potential by supporting our educators and encouraging students to reach new heights.
Join us as we work together toward success in educating the youth of our community by assisting us as we view our students potential through the lens of our Mission statement:
The Columbia School District, in partnership with the community, will provide a safe and positive learning environment, which will prepare all students to contribute and compete in a global society.
