Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
This past summer, the Ohio Legislature passed Senate Bill 316, which Governor John Kasich signed into law. Senate Bill 316 includes changes and reforms that directly affect elementary schools, including the addition of the “Third Grade Guarantee,” which in part places greater emphasis to reading instruction and intervention in the early grades.  ...

Attention all Parents and Guardians,

There have been a few changes as it pertains to safety guidelines with peanut and tree nut allergies. Please open the pdf document located below to read more about the changes. 

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.    Click here for the whole pdf letter. 

The following link is a great resource if you are questioning whether a snack is a "safe snack"  www.snacksafely.com

Thank you for your help in this matter.

On Sunday, May 4, five Columbia students represented Copopa Elementary at the Lorain County 3rd and 4th Grade Spelling Bee. Our super spellers Kyerstyne, Elijah, Dante, Andrew, and Luke represented the Raider Nation well. It was an exciting, yet challenging day as the spellers attempted words like: miscellaneous, nuisance, and guttural. Copopa fourth graders did a fabulous job by having three students place in the top six!
