Happy Valentine's Day!

St. Columba Families,

It was quite a fun day on campus with a lot of cards, candy, and love!

I was gone for the majority of the week on an accreditation visit at another school, but being back on campus yesterday and today was fantastic. It may sound trite, but it is so true: You realize how special something is when it is away from you. Being gone for three days reminded me what an amazing school we have. Today, on Valentine's Day, I wanted to remind each of you how much amazing love is on our campus. We are truly blessed!

Lot's of great photos below!

Here is a look ahead at the upcoming events on campus:

  • Monday, February 17: NO SCHOOL - PRESIDENT'S DAY
  • Tuesday, February 18: Hot Lunch Order Forms Due
  • Wednesday, February 19: Spring Sports Forms Due
  • Thursday, February 20:
  • Friday, February 21: Mass (8:15am); Preschool and K-8 Half Day
