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.

School groups, businesses, and other organizations are invited to participate by hosting a trunk. There is no cost for sponsoring a trunk. 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 or at 592-6641 if your organization would like to participate.

Let's make this a great community event!

School Spirit! Blue and Gold Day is every Friday! Show your Eagle Pride!

Fight, Central, down the field
Fight for victory
Fight, Eagles, never yield
We're with you oh varsity

Onward with banners bold
In our hearts, you are the best,
Fight for the blue and gold,
Down the field for CHS,

Varsity! Victory!
Eagles, we're proud of that nickname!

Hear our song!
Loud and strong!
Central is going to win this game.

Come on and ... (repeat)

Listen to Our Fight Song
