Team Columbia

Average is OFFICIALLY over!

Second Semester is in Full Swing!

I hope everyone got off to a great start the first week back! May will be here before we know it. I just want to take this time to reaffirm our instructional foci this year:


1. Focus on content vocabulary

2. Continued use of Cornell Notes

3. Instructional strategies that heightens rigor

4. Student collaboration

5. Student centered instruction


As we continue to reach our goals continue to allow students to take responsibility for their own learning utilizing strategies that focus on the above list.


Have a great week of teaching and learning!

Going on this Week!
