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 placed second at the 16 Handles Tastemaker Fundraiser on Monday evening. His creation, the “Old School Special,” featured vanilla and strawberry frozen yogurt, caramel with sea salt, crumbled brownie, strawberries, kiwi eyes and nose, and an M&M smile.

Columbia will receive a $165.00 donation from 16 Handles – a $100 prize for Mr. Sawchuk’s runner-up finish and $65 based on a percentage of the sales from the night. The money will be given to the Science Olympiad team for travel expenses to the National Championships this weekend.

Nice job, Mr. Sawchuk!
