Columbia Elementary School

To the Editor: 

I am a mom of three students that graduated from Columbia Elementary and have 4 children currently enrolled there. I am tired of reading the negative comments about our school and superintendent in the newspaper. I am proud of the teachers and staff and couldn’t ask for a better school for my children. 

I am also employed at both Columbia and Belleview schools. I see Dr. Pendley at both schools and can tell you that he is the one to pull up his sleeves and work until the job is finished. I have seen him shovel snow, dig out blacktop because of a broken water pipe, and take time to talk to the students, as well as the parents and staff. He is a good guy and a very hard worker. 

Sometimes our children don’t make the best choices in spite of their parents.
