End Of The Year Action Items
The end of the year is right around the corner. The countdown has inevitably begun, not just for our seniors, but for the rest of the students. That being said, preparations are well underway for next school year and the many opportunities available for students. Please remind those students entering into their sophomore, junior, or senior year that are interested in applying to become student ambassadors, to fill out the necessary form and obtain a letter of recommendation from a staff member before the deadline. Additionally, students interested in applying to the National Honor Society will receive information on next steps and when the application window is. Current junior members will also get information about the ability to re-apply.
What wonderful temperatures we were blessed with over the Easter Triduum! Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy some time outside in addition to celebrating our Lord. Warm temperatures bring to mind spring cleaning and here at Columbus, we too, are doing some cleaning. While academics are a priority, life skills are also taught in means that hopefully echo what is being instilled at home. Students are reminded that taking care of their belongings is a responsibility that needs to be done throughout the school day, year round. Items should not be left behind in hallways, in the gymnasium, on the stage, or classrooms. Students have access to lockers throughout the day by their classrooms and a locker room for physical education and extracurricular needs. Items left behind in any of these locations will be taken to our lost and found. Not only do we want students to take pride in themselves but also with our schools. Only together, we can maintain a campus that is safe, inviting, and one that we are all proud of. Our custodial staff will be happy with those efforts as well!
There is an incredible event that the LEO Program has coming up this Monday, April 12th. The LEO Program is a state-approved interactive resilience building program for youth ages 14-20 in Wood County, WI. LEO stands for Learn & Empower Oneself. The mission of The LEO Program is to empower youth to understand their unique brains and quickly improve resilience, adaptability, and fearlessness in a rapidly changing world. One of our students from Columbus Catholic High School, who is also a part of MCLA, is going to be putting on a De-Stress Event. It is virtual, and people can register ahead of time via Zoom. All are welcome, youth, parents, families, community members! She will be talking about what stress is, how LEO has helped her better manage her stress, and strategies to de-stress. Please share with anyone that you think may be interested and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. See the flyer HERE for more information.
As always, thank you for choosing Columbus Catholic Schools.
