St. Columba Families,

I pray that you all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving break! We all have so much to be thankful for, even during these challenging times!

I am thankful for our students, families, teachers, staff members, parishioners, alumni, and friends of our school! Together, we make our community great!

I would also like to thank you all for your support during these first 3 months of the school year. It has been a start of a school year unlike any other, but we are doing great!

As mentioned in the email I sent out previously, in order to for us to keep doing great, we must employ some restraint during this upcoming week. Please minimize your gatherings and if you do gather with people that are not from your household, please do so outdoors. Please limit travel, but if you do travel, please follow the 14 day quarantine or COVID testing expectations. If we can make it through January, I believe we will be in the clear for the rest of the year and the foreseeable future.

God bless each and every one of you and thank you for your presence in my life!


Mr. Amann

"Grateful Gobblers" Thanksgiving Raffle Ticket Competition

During Thanksgiving break, starting today at 4pm, we are holding a Competition among our classes to see which class can sell the most Raffle Tickets for our Car Raffle during the Thanksgiving Break.

Any K-8 class that sells at least 30 tickets will receive a "Make your Own PE Day" with Mr. B!

Regardless of total sales, the class that sells the most tickets during Thanksgiving break will receive a period of Outside Free Play along with a Free Dress Day!

If Preschool sells at least 30 tickets, they will receive a Character Dress Up Day where they can dress up as their favorite Book/TV/Movie Character for school!

Remember, the only tickets that count for this competition are ones sold from 4pm on 11/20 through 11:59pm on 11/29!
