Columbia Elementary School Principal Abe Yospe Recognized by Students in Silly Way

Principal covered in silly stringStudents at Columbia Elementary School are always thinking of ways to tell Principal Abe Yospe how important he is in making Columbia a great place to be and to learn. Recently, they showed their appreciation in a rather silly way. In honor of National Principals month, a group of students who are all excelling in math fluency, were allowed to cover Principal Yospe in silly string. The school’s mascot, Astro was part of the silly surprise.

To Mr. Yospe and all of our amazing school principals, we say thank you for your tireless efforts in the pursuit of excellence in education and helping our students succeed.
