It is my favorite time of the year. I love every opportunity to celebrate school pride. Spirit Week begins on Monday. The week will conclude with the Homecoming game on Friday, September 30th at 7 PM.

Homecoming events include:

  • Columbia School District Pep Assembly-1 PM, Columbia Central High School Gymnasium.
  • Homecoming Parade-5 PM, Downtown Brooklyn
  • 50th Anniversary Alumni Reception-6 PM, Columbia Central High School Parking Lot (Look for the Hospitality Tent)

CES and CUES will be walking together in the parade. We invite all of our students to join us. If your child plans to participate in the parade, please meet Mrs. O'Neil and our teachers in the football field parking lot behind CUES. All students will need a ride home following the parade.
