Parents, Teachers, Students and Community Members,

At Columbus we work in collaboration with our families and community members to ensure the academic and social growth of every child.

Parents keep making sure we have our children R.E.S.T. at home by:

  • Establishing a daily Routine.
  • Providing them with healthy foods to Eat.
  • Making sure they get enough Sleep.
  • Talking to them to develop their vocabulary.

Continue to encourage the love of learning by reading to our children and asking questions daily. Always look in your child’s backpack, and continue to be an advocate for your child.

It is my pleasure to work with and for you.


Sincerely,

Sonia Nunez, Principal

Dr. Brian Osborne's Latest on The Huffington Post - Preparing Students for College Begins Earlier Than Most Parents Expect

High school seniors who applied Early Decision or Early Action to their first choice colleges in November are now hearing whether they've been admitted.  In the New Rochelle schools, we have been fortunate to learn our students have been accepted so far to Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, The College of William and Mary, and Yale University.


Yet the college admissions journey for our students didn't start this year, or even in high school.  In New Rochelle, we offer opportunities for children to visit colleges while they're still in elementary school.  Children from Columbus School recently visited Iona College.   


A counselor gave kids and their parents a tour of the campus, answered questions, and discussed the courses to take in high school to best prepare for higher learning.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.

School Community Health Advisory Influenza Vaccine Fall 2014/Winter 2015

The district wishes to ensure that the importance of getting the Influenza vaccine does not get lost in all of the media and public discussion of Enterovirus D68 and even Ebola. See Frank Bruni’s recent NY Times column,
“Scarier Than Ebola”:  Click Here


Influenza is a serious and potentially deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that ALL individuals 6 six months of age and older be vaccinated against Influenza.


The Flu virus changes genetically from year to year, so last year's Flu vaccine will not reliably protect you from this year's circulating Flu strains. Everyone needs to be vaccinated annually.
