Volunteering

There are a variety of opportunities in which you can help make a difference at Columbia School District! If you are interested in volunteering, attending classroom events, being a chaperone on field trips, or coaching in youth sports a Volunteer Release form must be completed prior to your participation. Volunteer Release forms can be obtained at any district office. You will also need a copy of your driver's license.

Trunk Or Treat

Columbia School District is hosting a Trunk or Treat for the children of the community. Columbia area families will come together to enjoy this event on October 28th from 3-5:00 pm.


School groups, businesses, and other organizations are invited to participate by hosting a trunk. There is no cost for sponsoring a trunk, but we ask that you provide your own candy; we are estimating approximately 2,000 children.


The goal is to have 40 or more trunks for the event. Please contact Monika Cook at Monika.Cook@myeagles.org or at 592-6641 if your organization would like to participate.


Let's make this a great community event!
