    Eagle Message

    The Eagle symbolizes strength, power and magnificence.  That's what I am.  That's what you are; you're strong, powerful and magnificent.  At Columbia, we're destined to spread our wings and soar like eagles.  Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we respond; not by what life brings to us, but how we use it and the attitude we bring to life.  A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes.  Let's make today great on purpose and better than the day before.  


Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to the Columbia Elementary Principal's Corner


    Dear Columbia Students,

     Thank you for allowing me to serve as your leader.  I promise to always put you first and take your feelings, thoughts and ideas into consideration.  I promise to not only advocate for you when no one else will, but I vow to provide you with a safe and rich learning environment.  I promise to always show interest in your life, while we soar to academic heights.  This is my pledge to you!

     Your servant leader,

    Principal Payton
