Daily Announcements

Thank you everyone who voted for our school to be the next Cool School on Fox 8! The segment aired this morning, Thursday, January 23 between 6:30 - 6:50am. It will run again THIS afternoon during their 4pm broadcast! It is now on their website. Click here for the link!
Copopa student council conducted a sucker sale during the Raider Rally. They sold out in less than a week! All proceeds will be donated to help the Australian Firefighters and Australian wildlife relief funds. Donations will still be accepted through next week. This was our students idea and since we are practicing EMPATHY this month they wanted to help.
Calling all Mini Cheer Campers! Columbia High School Cheerleading is hosting Mini Cheer Camp for grades Pre-School - 6th Grade! Come learn a chant, cheer and dance with the High School Cheerleaders and perform at the Varsity Basketball Game on Friday, February 14th, 2020 at 7:30pm! Cheer camp dates are February 10th and 12th in the Columbia High School cafeteria and February 13th in the Columbia Middle School cafeteria. All sessions are from 5:30pm-7pm.

Marco's gives back a percentage of sales generated from our school nights that are called in on the phone or placed in the store. They give even more for orders placed online. You can give the school and teacher name any other time you order during the month and it will also count. They award a free pizza party to the classroom with the most orders!
Raiders Got Talent Show: Columbia PTO is very excited to host their first talent show on Saturday, February 1, 2020 in the CHS gym. Auditions will be held in December. Deadline for entries has been extended to December 6! See flyer/particication form HERE  
December Character of the Month:  This student shows RESPECT by always using manners. They say "please" and "thank you" without being prompted; they say "excuse me" when needs to get past someone and then waits for them to move rather than pushing through; they use a voice level that doesn't distract others from what they are doing; they keep their hands to themselves.  Kindergarten: Andrew Borling, Logan Bibby, Alyssa Stevens; 1st Grade: Riley Evans, Erica McCall, Shiloh Zeiger; 2nd Grade: Tyler Butcher, Dylan Pavlosky, Charlie Smith; 3rd Grade: Drew Blenda, Devyn Kasco, Alexis Utyuzh; 4th Grade: Grace Anderson, Lilly Schwerman, Lilly Wilson.

Snack Safely: At Copopa and Columbia Middle School 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. View our Peanut Free letter HERE
What to do when your child is sick. Keep Your child home if they have had any of these symptoms in the last 24 hours: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, too sick for regular activity, or fever above 100 F. Students should return to school when fever-free for 24 hours without medication. If antibiotics are used, wait 24 hours before returning to school. Visit your health district at or call 440.322.6367 with questions.  
Parents: The Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410 to promote school attendance and control truancy. This law takes effect this school year. This new law supersedes the attendance information that is currently in our student agendas and handbooks. Please make sure to check the "Forms and Documents" tab on the left to view the new attendance policy.
