Congratulations to one of our fabulous 4th grade teachers, Mrs. Sheri Adams. Mrs. Adams earned a $500 grant from Kelly Fuels to support math and science within her classroom! We are so grateful to Kelly Fuels for their generosity and support. Mrs. Adams cannot wait to incorporate more opportunities for innovative and creative STEAM lessons within her curriculum.

Thank you, Kelly Fuels!

Columbia School District is proudly sponsoring a Veteran’s Day assembly on Friday, November 9th at 9:30 am. Students from both elementary schools will be transported by bus to the CCHS at 8:30 am. We would like to have as many Veterans as possible to attend this event to honor them and to teach our students about the importance of recognizing service to our country.

All Veterans should arrive at Columbia Central High School at 9:00 am for a light breakfast reception. The assembly will include special music, a guest speaker, reading of the Veterans’ names and will last approximately one hour.

If at all possible, please wear uniforms or other service/patriotic clothing.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office.



Conferences will be held on November 19th and 20th from 4-7 pm. You will be receiving more information about scheduling from your teacher.


Picture retakes are scheduled for Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

Each girl was given a copy of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Confidence Code for Girls!
