Do you know how to ski or snowboard? Kindergarten, first, and second graders at Columbine now know how! Students recently participated in the Shredder Ski & Snowboard Mountain Experience that taught them the basics of the equipment, the correct form, and gave them the opportunity to practice the athletic skills they need for each sport. Students rotated through stations to try out the artificial ski and snowboard slopes, as well as practicing their balancing and gross motor skills with dry land skiing and snowboard activities.
Here at Columbine we had more than 110 students participate in our summer STEM program! Students entering first through fifth grades focused their summer on exploring the features of underground habitats, the movement and interactions of light, as well as the components and structure of our solar system. In addition to an amazing summer of learning, students at Columbine were also winners of the Shake, Rattle and Read 2014 Summer Challenge. Students read more books on MyON than any other Title I school in the district and won $1,500 to strengthen our reading programming!
