Veterans salute

For the Intelligencer | Posted: Monday, November 24, 2014 12:15 pm

Columbus fifth grade students held the annual 5th grade Veteran’s Day Parade on Wednesday, Nov. 12.  Each year, the students make shoebox floats in honor of veterans and their service to our country.  Veterans from the VFW, along with other veterans attend the parade and afterwards are able to meet with the students and talk about how they served.

Columbus 3rd Grade Students Enjoy Time With Grandparents

This week, the 3rd grade students at Columbus Elementary invited their grandparents to come visit with them.  The students read a poem and sang the song "Grandma and Grandpa I Love You" to their grandparents in the cafeteria.  Afterwards, the students served their grandparents cookies and juice and had time to socialize with them.

Columbus Elementary School Book Fair

Children love books.

This week, Columbus School hosts the annual Scholastic Book Fair. Students have a chance to preview books and make a list of books they would like to purchase. Later this week, the students will return to the Book Fair and purchase the books they chose.

Parent volunteers from the PTO organize and help run the Book Fair. The money the school earns from the Book Fair is used to support the PTO in various ways. One portion of the proceeds each year is set aside to pay for the monthly Scholastic News that teachers use with all students.

Thank you parents for taking the time to organize this.
