Mrs. Niemeier and Mrs. Aschenbrenner are the second grade teachers at Columbian. The foundation that is begun in the first grade program is continued and enhanced in the second grade. Each day in the second grade classrooms there is instruction in the core curriculum as well as some music, art, and physical activity. Second grade students become "Classroom Assistants" with varying responsibilities including line leader, office helper, and door duty. Classroom computers are a part of center activities. Students use both AppleWorks and Microsoft Word for word processing and create multimedia projects using Canvastic and Kidspiration.
Specialist teachers in vocal music, physical education, and library instruct students twice in a ten day cycle. The art teacher meets with students once in a ten day cycle.
Second grade students enjoy a fun and stimulating year at Columbian.
