Columbine Families

                During the District closure Columbine wants learning to continue. To encourage this Columbine’s staff will be posting optional learning activities on Google Classroom. Students are already familiar with Google Classroom and we encourage you to sit down with your child and learn more about what they are working on. Students can also access more educational activities here ( ). Ram Time teachers will be reaching out to their Ram Time Students during the district closure.

Estimadas familias de Columbine:


Durante el cierre del Distrito, Columbine quiere aprender a continuar. Para fomentar esto, el personal de Columbine va a publicar actividades de aprendizaje opcionales en Google Classroom. Los estudiantes ya están familiarizados con Google Classroom y los animamos a que se siente con su hijo(a) y aprenda más sobre en qué están trabajando. Los estudiantes también pueden acceder a más actividades educativas aquí ( Los maestros de la hora “Ram Time” se comunicarán con sus estudiantes de la hora “Ram Time” durante el cierre del distrito.
