2008 Bond Projects
Thanks to the community, the passage of the 2008 Bond will provide funds for building repairs and infrastructure upgrades.
Reminiscent of a classic Norman Rockwell painting, Columbine is quietly snuggled in historic east side Longmont among majestic oak and maple-lined streets standing as a monument to Longmont’s rich educational roots. The current campus encompasses three buildings including the original red stone building that opened its doors in 1906.
A 2004 and 2005 Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award winner, Columbine Elementary School continues to focus on each student reaching his/her full potential while striving to meet the No Child Left Behind and Adequate Yearly Progress benchmarks. Specifically, Columbine’s goal is to raise student performance levels in reading and writing to 80% or higher in the proficient or advanced category on the CSAP assessment.
