THANK A TEACHER!

New this year:  The La Crosse Diocese wanted to create an opportunity for our community, parents and students to thank our teachers who give so generously of their time in teaching through Christ. They have created a “Thank a Teacher” link where one can leave a comment and the LaX Diocese team here will be sure it gets to us after Catholic Schools Week is over.  At Columbus Catholic Schools, we plan to post these comments on this webpage and on our Facebook page.  If you would like to publicly thank a teacher, please fill out the form below!

Thank-A-Teacher
