Our staff is dedicated to helping every student. We believe it takes a team approach. Our school motto is “All staff, all students, all the time.” Together we can help every child succeed.

We are committed to helping your child be successful socially, emotionally, and academically. We believe each child is capable of reaching their potential and we are determined to find the path to help them be successful. We strive at Columbia Ridge to teach teamwork, promote kindness and strive for success for all students.

It is my hope that the information in this handbook will answer many of your questions. I encourage you to read this book with your child and to keep it for future reference.

We welcome and encourage families to visit and get involved. We have a very active PTO-Parent Teacher Organization that would welcome your support. Always remember to check in at the office when you come to school so we can provide a safe environment for all.

We at Columbia Ridge put safety first when it comes to your child. Your child is with us for up to seven hours a day and we want to provide the best care for them while at our school. Our caring and dedicated staff is here to help team with you to help your child have a wonderful school experience. If a situation arises that affects your child’s well-being please come and see us.
