The Leadership class has started their annual Canned Food Drive. We will be collecting non-perishable items throughout the week. The class who collects the most donations will be bowling on December 15th and the winning junior high class will earn a pizza party! Please join us in helping to support our local community.


Another exciting announcement...Rosa Creech, Zumba Instructor, will be providing a FREE PASS to any of her classes if participants bring in a food item this week for our Canned Food Drive.

Congratulations to our Golden Eagles of the Week for November 27-December 1!

Thank you, Mrs. Schmidt, for making a positive difference at Columbia Central Jr./Sr. High School!

Mrs. Schmidt is the Language Arts teacher for the 7th and 8th grade students at CCJH. She has been a beloved teacher in our school district for so many years. One amazing project Mrs. Schmidt has been working on with her students is a Pen Pal Program. Junior high students correspond through writing with our 3rd grade at CUES. At the end of their project, the students will have a celebration with their 3rd grade pen pals and meet one another in person. This is a great way to teach writing but to also create positive relationships with students across the district. In her free time, Mrs. Schmidt enjoys cooking, taking walks, and traveling with her husband. Thank you, Mrs. Schmidt for making a positive difference at Columbia Central Jr./Sr. High School!
