Columbia parents,

Please see the information below for the St. Jude's fundraiser information for this year's 2018 campaign. Our district participates each year. Columbia usually meets and surpasses the $5000 school goal each year. Each grade level has a individual goal and will use the donation links provided in the attachment to access the school fundraiser pages for making donations. You can also use your classroom teacher's link. If they are participating in the St. Jude's marathon, they will email you the link. All donations are, coin, check or online.

Columbia and every other Madison City School has had a student/family impacted by childhood cancer and 100% benefited from St. Jude's Hospital at NO cost to the family.
