Greetings from the library!

Just a brief reminder that next week will be our final week of library check out. All library materials need to be returned beginning Monday, June 12th. Please check all nooks and crannies for missing books so that we can inventory our collection prior to the end of the school year. On Tuesday, June 13th, classes will enjoy a special presentation from the Mukilteo Public Library to learn about their summer reading program.

Thank you for your support this year! It has been a joy working with you and your readers!

Lost and Found is overflowing!

As we begin to wrap up the school year, I want to remind you that our lost and found is overflowing with jackets, hoodies, water bottles and many other items. Please make sure you or your child checks the lost and found rack, we will have them in the courtyard in front of the school front office. Any items that are not being claimed by the end of the year will be donated to a local charity organization.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Upcoming Events/ Volunteer Opportunities!

  • Columbia Cougars get ready for Beach Day! ~Friday, June 2nd from 4pm-7pm at Mukilteo Lighthouse Park.

Please RSVP here so we're prepared with enough food.

Please sign up to contribute snacks/volunteer here.

We're looking for a couple people to help plan this event! If you are interested, please email Jaime at president@mycolumbiapta.org. We have the resources, we just need volunteers to bring this event together! This is a great opportunity to work together with friends, neighbor, and family members to organize fun, community building events. It's also a great way to meet people!

Moving To A New School

If you will not be returning to Columbia for the 2023-24 school year, please notify the office as soon as possible. This allows us to make room for new students moving into our school and records can be sent to the new school.

Attendance Line

If your student will absent or tardy, please leave a message on our 24 Hours attendance line at (425) 366-2605. If the absence is reported after 10:00 am, you may receive an automated call.

Please include:

  • Student First and Last Name
  • Date of absence
  • Reason for absence.

We will only return your call or voicemail if we have questions.

Attendance Matters

Did you know that just TWO absent days a month can make it harder for students to stay on track? Attendance matters for all of us at Columbia Elementary, and we need your help! If you need support, please call (425) 366-2600. Avoid calling between 8:45-9:15 AM.

  • Early Pick-Up

If your child will be leaving early for the day, families/guardians will need to send a note, email the teacher or call the office on the main line at 425-366-2600. (Avoid calling between 8:45-9:15 AM) Please do not leave a message on the attendance line. Please avoid picking up during their scheduled lunch, recess or time with specialists as it may take extra time to retrieve your student. Only an authorized person may take a child from school. Any student being dismissed prior to the regular dismissal time must be met in the office, where the student must be signed out by the parent/guardian or authorized person.

  • Pre-Arranged Absence

Any absence not specifically covered, such as family vacations or other extended absence, must have a Principal approved pre-arranged absence form in order to be excused. This form must be completed and submitted to the school office one week prior to the scheduled absence.

Free Meals for all Students!

This year all children are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch. If your child has dietary restrictions, or you don’t want your child to eat the school-provided meals, please tell your child’s teacher. If you send lunch from home, please make sure your child can independently open all items and that you send healthy foods your child will eat.

Breakfast is served from 8:35-8:50 AM daily.

Lunch is served by grade level at their designated lunch time.
