O'Neil's News

We held our first Student of the Month ceremony this past week. Every month teachers select a student in their classroom who continually demonstrates positive citizenship and gives their best effort toward academic achievement. It is an honor to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Congratulations to our first group for the 2016-2017 school year.

Additionally, 175 students were recognized for having perfect attendance during the month of September. Students who earn perfect attendance are present and on time every day. Positive attendance in school supports academic growth and a positive connection with school.



CUES has received the MIS Cares grant for the creation of our first school and community garden. Please stay tuned for volunteer opportunities as we design and create our garden.

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!
