MCSD Resource Adoption of SpringBoard ELA for Grades 6-12

MCSD is considering the adoption of College Board’s SpringBoard English Language Arts resource for all secondary schools, grades 6-12. SpringBoard is the highest-rated ELA resource by EdReports and is aligned to Colorado Academic Standards and College Board’s SAT Career and College Readiness benchmarks. 

College Board's SpringBoard ELA resource offers a comprehensive curriculum for students in grades 6-12, designed to enhance critical thinking, close reading, writing in various genres, and research skills. The program includes a variety of literary works and genres such as poetry, novels, plays, biographies, nonfiction narratives, speeches, and films. Each grade level is built around a specific theme, and students progress from guided reading to independent work through collaborative projects. The curriculum focuses on developing students' abilities to gather evidence from texts, incorporate it into written and oral responses, and apply multiple perspectives to complex texts. Students are also taught to analyze how historical contexts have influenced literary performances and adaptations.

You can read the MCSD proposal to adopt SpringBoard ELA at the following link:

Updated Food Ordering/Delivery Policy

While Columbine wants to allow students to eat a lunch of their choosing, food delivery during the school day is taking a toll on office personnel and creating classroom disruptions. To that end, we would like to inform you of the new policy we are implementing regarding food delivery to CMS.
  1. Food ordered to Columbine Middle School for students to eat during lunch time must be delivered by 11:30a (11:00a on Wednesday’s) for 6th grade students, and 12:00p (11:30a on Wednesday’s) for 7th and 8th grade students. 
  2. All delivered food items will be held in the office for the student to eat at their designated lunch time.
  3. Group orders will not be allowed and the student for whom the food was ordered will be the only one allowed to have access and eat the delivered food.
  4. All delivered food will be eaten in the office by the student’s name given to the office when the delivery takes place, as to not cause a disruption or distraction to the lunchroom or food serving process at CMS.
  5. If the delivered food does not arrive to Columbine by the above designated times, or after the completion of the lunch period, the food will be held in the office until the final bell at 3:35p (2:35p on Wednesday’s) for the student to pick up after school.
