Columbia’s Story - Our Beliefs About Student Learning
Our job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. We believe that all students will learn and find academic achievement at higher levels. It is our commitment to create an environment in our classrooms and in our building resulting in high levels of performance and growth within our community of learners. We are confident that, with our support, students will master challenging academic material and become empowered learners. We are all accountable for our part in the success of every member of our learning community. We are prepared, dedicated and determined to work collaboratively with students, parents, colleagues and our community to achieve a shared educational purpose that elevates ALL.

Student-Led Parent/Teacher Conferences in September

Hello Parents,

This year, students will be leading their conferences to communicate with you regarding their learning so far this year.  You should have already received a paper “invitation” or an email with a link to schedule a conference from your child and child’s team of teachers.  Please respond to that invitation so that teams can get you scheduled.

You will receive an automated message to remind you of the conferences that are happening on Tuesday, Sept. 20th and Tuesday, Sept. 27th from 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM. Team’s will confirm your specific time slot as well.

Please call the schoool (303-690-6570) if you have any questions.


The Teams below have sent emails with links for you to make an appointment.
