Principal's Message

We are a successful school because of the great work of our students, staff, parents, volunteers, and community members. We have built a solid foundation and now continue to add layers of quality to our school. One of the challenges for each person at CJH is, "What positive contribution can I make to our school?" We are going to focus on growing our good school climate and atmosphere to assure that all students, every day, have a World Class Learning experience.

Our teachers continue to work in the Standard Bearer Network. This work has our teachers focus on the quality of the lessons they are preparing for students. Last year, we had each department meet for an entire day to work on a single lesson, unit or project. The quality of the work was tremendous, as is the case when our great teachers have time to work together. Our students will directly benefit from these efforts.

We are proud that our school carries the name of the Space Shuttle Columbia. We have the obligation to carry forward the best expectations of its crew: a sense of curiosity, a willingness to learn, and a drive towards excellence. Columbia Astronaut Michael Anderson said, "Whatever you want to be in life, you're training for it now." Please take your years at Columbia as an opportunity for excellence, challenge, and growth.

Have a great year Cougars!

Mr. Robinson
