Approximately 150 Columbia School District teachers, staff and administrators appreciate the opportunity to assist in developing and increasing learning activities to benefit your child’s education. Our goal is to partner with you to provide your child an outstanding educational experience in a safe, positive and dynamic environment.
At the schools in the Columbia District, we work on being intentional regarding our students’
learning opportunities. Teachers develop plans which include activities designed to enhance student achievement. Our terrific teachers use detours and “teachable moments” to allow random events to become learning filled occasions. The other day I ventured into a classroom where a visiting spider had given the teacher an opportunity to help the students learn a bit about the rather large arachnid.
Increasingly, teachers are integrating technology into their learning activities in their classroom. Our teachers engage their learners by unfolding their lesson by intentionally using technology to boost student interest and understanding. The teachers are coming up with creative ideas to improve student achievement and to increase the capability of students to be successful problem solvers. We are empowering our teachers to work with students to harness technology to gather information and to communicate efficiently and effectively. Our teachers, using best practices, are striving to increase literacy and integration of technology while incorporating digital and blended learning activities into the educational environment in their classrooms.
As a member of the Columbia School District community you may support the teachers’ intentional focus on enhancing the students’ achievement by encouraging your child or grandchild to fully complete their school projects or assignments. You may encourage your child to take the next step and learn more about topics they are covering in school by conducting web-quests. You may also support our wonderful teachers by engaging in positive verbal support as you speak with others in the community. Your enthusiasm for learning at Columbia Schools may also include volunteering to serve on a committee or read a book to a child or cheer our sports teams on to victory.
As we work together side-by-side leading the children of the community to become lifelong learners, our support of education will have an enduring effect on our children! I am deeply proud of the critical and immeasurable community support for the Columbia School District. Thanks to your help, Columbia School District has become one of Michigan’s premier school districts.
