Splitting a String

I am attempting to split strings in one column and then populate other columns with pieces of that string.

For Example:

24-5896-CO  Is the string in the originating 'Label' column.

What script do I need to put the '5896' into a different column

and then the 'CO' into a different one as well.

I have been reading up on python, but haven't gotten anywhere.
