NOVEMBER 3, 2017


Thank you so much to the many families who were able to participate in our Halloween celebrations on Tuesday. We appreciate you taking the time to enjoy this day with all of us.

Trunk or Treat was also a wonderful family event, and a tremendous success. It was enjoyable to see so many families attend. We appreciate all of our local businesses, school organizations and community members who sponsored a trunk and supported our parade through town.


Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on November 15th and 16th from 4-7 PM. During conferences, we will plan to share important information regarding your child's academic progress. It is also an important time to learn about resources that will support your child's continued growth.


Columbia School District is proudly sponsoring a Veteran’s Day assembly on Friday, November 10th at 9:00 am. Students from both elementary schools will be transported by bus to the high school 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 8:30 am for coffee and muffins. If at all possible, please wear uniforms or other service/patriotic clothing.

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