Last week, twenty-one CMS students traveled to Lorain County Community College to participate in the Lorain County ESC’s Young Authors Conference. Over the course of the year, students wrote and illustrate their own books, coming up with original literary elements using their own ideas. Several of our students were recognized for their writing and illustrating talents. In 5th grade, Claire Ondrejko was selected for her illustrations and Piper Erman was selected for her writing. In 6th grade, Tyler Rundle was selected for his illustrations, and Alyse Young was selected for her writing. A special congratulations to Alyse Young for winning Best in Show 6th grade writer. We are so proud of all of our Young Authors. Great job Raiders!

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.
