Please choose from the following lists – you may read more than one of course, your choice after you select one of these – we encourage it; your brain will thank you, too . . . You will take a short quiz on the first day of school, please be prepared. Keep a log of your reading and bring it with you the first day of school for immediate EXTRA Credit!

All student athletes must have a current sport physical before the start of an athletic season. The OHSAA Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form is due the first day of mandatory practices along with the yellow Athletic Medical Waiver Form your athlete will not be able to practice without these form. The remaining forms are due along with your child's participation fee of $250 for the 2013-2014 school year no later than the team sports picture day scheduled for the season in which your child will participate. The physical form is valid for one calendar year and will be kept on file. The code of conduct and eligibility checklist and medical waiver need to be completed each athletic season to ensure CMS has the most current and accurate information to ensure your child's safety. The Columbia Local Schools Student and Parent Athletic Handbook is a complete listing of all information that you and your child need. Please take the time to read this document carefully.
