It is our great regret to inform you all of the cancellation of the Book Fair 2013 scheduled this week although we have just sent you a reminder. The publisher and the bookseller, R.I.C. informed us on Friday evening that they would not be able to hold the event at our school due to their staffing issues. We have sought for options to avoid disappointing hundreds of members who have been looking forward to the fair however, in this short notice, we had to come to a conclusion that we should cancel the event this year.
We apologize for this happening.

We were very pleased with the results Columbia students achieved on the nation wide Japanese literacy test. Columbia students rank very high when compared to all other schools even those in Japanese private and public schools. Consistently we are finding that the Japanese ability of Columbia students is above those in regular Japanese curriculum schools. Several students were presented with awards for being above their grade level. Several students achieved levels 2 grades higher on the open ended test. Way to go Columbia elementary.
