Hello Columbia Community,

 

We have come to a much-needed break for staff, students, and families with the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner.  Over the course of next week, I hope everyone gets time to relax and enjoy loved ones.  Students, I urge you to continue to read and catch up on your favorite books.  Remember, APS has access to an incredible assortment of books available through Sora (click here).  Upon our return, we will have only 3 more weeks before the conclusion of the first semester.  Please stay informed on your student’s progress throughout this quarter.  In the link below entitled “Parent Academy Video,” you will find additional information.   We will send out additional information as soon as we know what the start of the 2nd semester will look like.

 

To celebrate the hard work of our students, we've partnered with local community businesses to reward students for their engagement in our virtual classrooms. We've received donations for our students from Chipotle, Dairy Queen, Skate City, and Urban Air. We are so appreciative of their support of our students and community!  We've also received donations from Kaiser Permanente and Unite2Uplift to support some of our Columbia families during the Thanksgiving Holiday. If you have the opportunity, please thank these organizations for their support of our school community. In the Counseling update below, you will see some of those partnerships and how those generous donations have impacted students and families.

 

Please continue to notify the school if your student has tested positive for Covid-19, been exposed or is experiencing Covid symptoms.  This is critical information for tracking and we have a number of resources to support families.  If you have any questions please contact nurse Amanda Kennedy at abkennedy@aurorak12.org.  Stay safe and take care of one another!

 

Reminders this week:

  • Thanksgiving Break Nov. 23rd-27th (No School) (Grab-n-go Thanksgiving meal kits will be available Monday-Wednesday at Columbia from 10:45-11:30)
  • December 17th (Last Day of 1st Semester)

Hola comunidad de Columbia:

 

Hemos llegado a un receso muy necesario para el personal, los estudiantes y las familias con las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias a la vuelta de la esquina. Durante la próxima semana, espero que todos tengan tiempo para relajarse y disfrutar de sus seres queridos. Estudiantes, les insto a que sigan leyendo y se pongan al día con sus libros favoritos. Recuerde, APS tiene acceso a una increíble variedad de libros disponibles a través de Sora (haga clic aquí).  A nuestro regreso, solo tendremos 3 semanas más antes de la conclusión del primer semestre. Manténgase informado sobre el progreso de su estudiante durante este trimestre. En el enlace a continuación titulado “Video de la Academia para Padres”, encontrará información adicional. Enviaremos información adicional tan pronto como sepamos cómo será el inicio del segundo semestre.

 

Para celebrar el arduo trabajo de nuestros estudiantes, nos hemos asociado con empresas de la comunidad local para recompensar a los estudiantes por su participación en nuestras aulas virtuales. Hemos recibido donaciones para nuestros estudiantes de Chipotle, Dairy Queen, Skate City y Urban Air. ¡Estamos muy agradecidos por su apoyo a nuestros estudiantes y comunidad!  También hemos recibido donaciones de Kaiser Permanente y Unite2Uplift para apoyar a algunas de nuestras familias de Columbia durante el Día de Acción de Gracias. Si tiene la oportunidad, agradezca a estas organizaciones por su apoyo a nuestra comunidad escolar. En la actualización de Consejería a continuación, verá algunas de esas asociaciones y cómo esas generosas donaciones han impactado a los estudiantes y las familias.

 

Continúe notificando a la escuela si su estudiante ha dado positivo en la prueba de Covid-19, ha estado expuesto o está experimentando síntomas de Covid. Esta es información fundamental para el seguimiento y tenemos una serie de recursos para apoyar a las familias. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la enfermera Amanda Kennedy en abkennedy@aurorak12.org. ¡Manténganse a salvo y cuídense unos a otros!
