Kindergarten Returns Full Time Starting March 1

The Board of Education has approved two changes to the instructional model: 1) Kindergarten students will resume five days a week of in-person learning starting on Monday, March 1. The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

Columbia Principal John Sawchuk

Columbia High School Principal John Sawchuk will be competing with the principals from Averill Park and Maple Hill to make the best frozen yogurt at 16 Handles in East Greenbush on Monday, May 15 at 6:30 p.m.

Each principal will create an original mix of frozen yogurt and toppings to be taste-tested by a panel of judges. The frozen yogurt will be judged on three categories – taste, appearance and creativity.

The winning principal will receive a $150 donation to their school from 16 Handles. Second and third place will receive $100 and $50, respectively. Additionally, 16% of all sales from that evening (6:00-9:00 p.m.) will be split three ways and donated to the high schools.

Students and their families are invited to attend and root on Mr. Sawchuk!
