Today I am happy to report that we are at 1% of actual COVID illnesses within the school. There have been several strands of non-COVID flu-like illnesses in all grade levels. We ask that you continue to keep your children home when they are sick and encourage hand washing.Thank you for working with us to ensure our success.

Mrs. Thielen, school counselor for Columbus Catholic High School, will be meeting with all 8th grade students on January 19th. During this time she will introduce the 4 YR Plan and talk about course requests. Columbus Catholic High School student ambassadors will also be here to talk with students about high school and life at Columbus! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Thielen at 319-233-3358 ext. 1122 or email her at

Watch the weather for tomorrow as it sounds like a snowy day!
