O'Neil's News

We would like to thank the Columbia Fire Department for donating their time this week at CUES. They shared fire prevention and safety tips with our 3rd and 4th grade. We also appreciate the support of both the fire and police department with Walk to School Day. Their encouragement of our staff and students is greatly appreciated within our community.


Halloween News....

We are looking forward to classroom celebrations. All Halloween activities will take place on Friday, October 28th. We encourage parents to attend classroom parties. If you plan to visit your child's classroom, please be sure to have your background check completed by Tuesday, October 25th.

We are excited to be holding our second annual staff Halloween costume contest and student parade through downtown Brooklyn. We would love parent support for both of these events. We will begin the assembly at 12:45 PM. Following the assembly, we will begin the parade leaving CUES at 1:15 PM. Students will parade around the village square greeting the community. The Columbia Police and Fire Department will assist us with crossing the streets.

Students are invited to wear costumes for the parade and party. Please note the following:

  • Students may not wear costumes, make-up or masks with blood or gore.
  • Masks are permitted. Please ensure masks do not obstruct student's vision.
  • Students may not bring any type of weapon with their costume.
  • Students will be responsible for any accessories they bring with their costume.

Columbia School District is hosting a Trunk or Treat for the community. We hope to bring together families from our district to enjoy this event. The Trunk or Treat is being held in the Columbia Central High School parking lot area on Sunday, October 30th from 3:30-6 PM.

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. CUES will be hosting a trunk and look forward to enjoying our community.

Please help by spreading the word to your churches, friends and business owners. The goal is to have 40 or more trunks for the event. Please contact Christ O'Neil at CUES (592-2181) if your organization would like to participate. Let's make this a great community event!
