The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont. El Centro de Recursos Comunitario de autoservicio estará abierto los miercoles de 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. durante los meses de junio y julio. Personal bilingüe estará disponible en el Centro de Servicios de Aprendizaje, 401 S. Pratt Parkway en Longmont.
Here at Columbine we had more than 110 students participate in our summer STEM program! Students entering 1st through 5th grades focused their summer on exploring the features of underground habitats, the movement and interactions of light, and the components and structure of our solar system.
While discovering all of the planets and moons around our solar system, students used their engineering skills to design landers for a planet of their choice and tested their effectiveness with an egg drop. They also designed film canister rockets and launched them to find the best wing and nose combinations for the best flight.
In the classrooms studying light, students learned about how light travels, and used their engineering skills to design ways to harness light to heat food and to create a laser security system!
Students exploring soil investigated the essential elements of a habitat, organisms that live within them, the process of decomposition, and almost everything else that makes up the ground below us!
In addition to all of the science and engineering covered over the summer, students at Columbine also participated in the Mission 31 Project with Fabian Cousteau. After the live webinar, students designed coral reefs and underwater classrooms. Some classes even tested their underwater classrooms to see if they were waterproof.
To top off an already amazing summer, students at Columbine were also winners of the Shake, Rattle, and Read 2014 Summer Challenge. Students read more books on MyON than any other Title I school in the district and won $1,500 to strengthen our reading programming!
