O'Neil's News

I would like to congratulate Mr. Folts and the Columbia Central Band Program. Their concert last evening featured students in 6-12 grade. Their performances were amazing. Mr. Folts has made a long lasting positive impact on the Columbia Music Program and so many students within our community. We are so thankful for his dedication to the Columbia School District and his passion for music.


We invite our community to the Hope Run event this year that is scheduled for Friday, May 12. This event is so special to our district every year. The funds raised over the years have been donated to the American Cancer Society and has made a positive impact. The Leadership Class at Columbia Central High School is hosting the event this year with a goal of raising $15,000.00.

There are several ways to contribute to the event. A packet of information was sent home with your child recently providing these options:

*You may provide a picture of a loved one who has lost, are still battling, and those who

have won their battle with cancer. The cost to have your photo included is $5.

*Luminary paper bags can purchased for $5 to dedicate to a special family member and will be displayed around the track during the Hope Run.

*Relay Feet are being sold for $1 and will be displayed in your child's school.

*Students also have the option of hair donation through the Pantene Beautiful

Lengths program. For more information regarding this you can visit their

website www.pantene.com.

*T-Shirts are also on sale and cost $10 each. All orders can be turned in to the CUES office.

Please feel free to email the Hope Run committee with questions at hoperuncchs@gmail.com.

This day is so memorable every year for students and staff. Please join our district in honoring our loved ones and helping the fight against cancer together.
