I am excited to be starting my fourth year as Principal of Columbus/Community Schools. I am truly looking forward to another successful year. Together between the Columbus School staff and the parents, we will make this a supportive and productive learning environment for your children to learn and grow into successful students and even more successful adults. The students will explore all academic areas during this school year as well as take part in various educational and enjoyable activities.
At Columbus/Community Schools, our students will also participate in Community Service projects that we will share with Jefferson School. Two of these have been continuous community projects over the past years and they are the Thanksgiving Feast for Lyndhurst Senior Citizens and the Appalachian Project. These two community based projects allow our students to help others and learn how important helping feed the hungry and providing items for shelter are for our "more needy neighbors." The 8th graders from Jefferson School serve our Senior Citizens a Thanksgiving meal at the Senior Center and our Columbus/Community students will be asked to bring a donation of a canned good item or two so that these can be cooked for that evening. Our Columbus/Community/Jefferson PTA has also graciously offered to lend some assistance for these events.
Communication between school and home is a very important aspect for the Columbus/Community School faculty. We will take many steps to enhance communication between school and home. This will take place in several ways so that we provide information to and from the families we serve.
-Communications will be sent home via e-mail/e-mail blast.
-Paper copies brought home by students
-Reverse 911 for school closings, emergencies, etc.
-Columbus School website
It is my goal to create a positive environment where the students, staff and parents will have a wonderful experience at Columbus School. I look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with each one of you.
