Dear Columbine Families,
Students are having a great year so far!
We appreciate our wonderful partnership with you all! Thank you for collaborating with teachers and with our school. Through our continued work, together we will keep seeing great academic and personal accomplishments among Columbine students.
We want all children to feel happy, safe and welcomed at school. We know that when students feel all of these things, they are more likely to take academic risks, learn through inquiry and most importantly – love being at school!
Thank you for being great partners in your child’s learning.
Dr. Bianca Gallegos
BVSD is switching to digital report cards
New this year, BVSD is launching electronic reports cards for grades 1-5 in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Distributing reports cards digitally will efficiently enable the district to ensure parents receive the report cards at home, that they can be referred to at a later time, and can save the monetary and environmental cost of mass district printing.
Your child’s report card will be available digitally after November 13th through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Please take a moment to read this memo from district leadership that provides instructions on how to access the report card online.
Columbine Innovation Project
As you may remember from the last newsletter, Columbine is receiving $200,000 from the BVSD bond dollars to implement an innovation project. Teachers came together to put together begin to put together a proposal to submit to the district on how to spend these dollars. Columbine would like to invest this money on improving the cafeteria and pod spaces but we want your voice included in the final proposal. If you have ideas or feedback on how we can improve those spaces to increase student collaboration and inquiry, please give us your ideas! Teachers are also asking their students for their valuable ideas too!
