Welcome to Columbia Junior High!

Student Bulletin: October 18, 2018

There is no Tech Club today after school, again no Tech Club after school today.

Reminder that during core/flex today the only activity available will be volleyball.

We continue Spirit Week today with Throwback Thursday. So far the 9th graders are still in the lead 7-2. However, there is still time for 8th graders to make a comeback. Don't forget, tomorrow is Cougar Friday and our first pep assembly of the year.

Need spirit gear for tomorrow? Spirit shirts are on sale during lunches for just $2! Take advantage of this screamin' deal before it's too late. Today is the final day to buy a shirt.

Thanks to all who participated in our walkathon and joined us on the track. As a school we raised about $4,800 dollars. Nice job Cougs! We will announce the winning class on Monday. 

Do you like to travel? How about flying across the country with a group of your friends? If so, you're in luck! Mr. Michel and Ms. Waldman are taking a group of students to Washington DC over Spring Break. It's a great opportunity to tour the nation's capital and is a ton of fun! If you are interested, there is an informational meeting next week on Tuesday, October 23rd at 7pm in the CJH Library. If you have questions, please see Mr. Michel.

FBLA members, this is a friendly reminder that your clothing, cookie dough and Cinnabon orders are due to Mrs. Waldman by the end of your lunch tomorrow.  Please see Mrs. Render if you have any questions.
