Snack Safely: At Columbia Middle School and Copopa we have a growing number of students and families dealing with serious peanut and tree nut allergies- the food allergy that claims more lives each year than any other. Columbia Schools makes every effort to reduce exposure and cross contamination for these children. We do not intend to make this K-8 facility a nut free building, but we are dedicated to providing a safe environment for all our children. In order to do so we will closely monitor and manage our practices and what we allow into this facility as it relates specifically to snacks and treats. It is our hope to prevent cross contamination. View the Peanut Free Letter HERE.

The 7th grade Raiders trailed by 7, but cut the lead to 2 by the end of the first half.  The Raiders came out in the second half and took the lead, but couldn’t sustain it.  The Raiders lost in the end to the Clippers. The 8th grade team got off to a good start by making several inside shots early on, and a few 3 point shot as well.  They too could not withstand the run put on by Clearview in the second half, thus falling to Clippers. The teams play at HOME on Monday, Dec, 17 vs. Parma at 5:00.
