The Columbia Golden Cash Bash will be held on February 22nd from 5-10 PM at the Gene Davis & Sons Banquet & Convention Center. We would love for our Columbia community to join us. The proceeds will support Columbia Academics, Athletics and the Arts. This is a great opportunity to celebrate Columbia Schools! Please contact the office to purchase your ticket!


At no time should your child transport medication to school. All medication must be brought to school by a parent or guardian. A medication administration form must be completed and any prescription medication must have information completed by your treating physician. We are not able to administer medication to your child if these procedures are not followed. We are happy to provide the following treatments when necessary: ice, Band-Aids, soap and water to wash abrasions, and always lots of love.


If your child is going to be absent, please call our Absentee Line @ 592-7981. Please send in a documented excuse if your child had an appointment.

Reminder that if your child has a fever or is vomiting, it is required that they remain home for 24 hours (medication free) from the time that they were first sick.

Thank you for helping us keep CUES healthy!


The Student Council is selling Candy Grams during all lunch periods between February 3rd -February 13th. Candy Grams can be purchased for friends, teachers and/or for your children. Thank you for your support!


Student safety is very important to us! Therefore, please refrain from parking in the middle lot during drop-off and pick up, as those spots are reserved for parents of preschoolers only. Please consider using the drop-off lane or parking on the side of the building. Thank you so much for you support!


Please make sure that your student has snowpants, boots, a hat and gloves for the outside weather. It is cold outside and we do go outside unless the wind chill is 0 or below. Brrrr!!!
