Copopa Elementary VS. Columbia Middle for Columbia Food Center
   Since 1982, the Columbia Food Center has been helping Columbia’s neediest families. With the many family changes and many grandparents taking on parenting roles, we are now seeing many more families in need.
   Families that receive help through public assistance are not able to purchase cleaning supplies or toiletry items with their food vouchers. That means toothpaste, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies that we take for granted, must be purchased with a family’s own money, a struggle for many folks. We will be conducting a drive to help the Columbia Food Center with these essential items. This friendly competition will begin on February 11 and end on February 22, 2019. Copopa Elementary School will hold the drive for toiletry items such as bar soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and toilet tissue.  Columbia Middle School will collect cleaning items. You may send the following items with your student: paper towels, disinfectant wipes, dish soap, Magic Erasers, cleaning sponges. Any other cleaning items should be dropped off by a parent at the school. Please do not send laundry soap or any other items that may be harmful with your student on the bus. At CMS, the grade level that donates the most items will be rewarded a pizza lunch after the close of the drive! At Copopa, the winning classroom will win a pizza lunch, courtesy of the Columbia Food Center
   Boxes will be set up in each classroom to hold items brought to school. At the end of the drive, teachers and volunteers will count items and announce a winner. Let’s make this a fun event, and help our community and neighbors with the things they so truly need! Kindness means working together and making sure every family receives the help they need!

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
