MS Bi-Weekly Update 1.6.19


Hello Middle School Parents and Guardians!

Here’s to a prosperous new year! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and are ready to get your kids back to school (uh, we are!).  We have 2 quick news items to share:

For All Parents: The next Parent Education program is set for Tuesday, January 29th over dinner. They will be screening the film SCREENAGERS with a speaker, Dr. Ryan Hansen, and lively discussion on growing up in the digital age. Click here to RSVP and for more information – and also a summary of November’s event if you missed it. 

For 6th Graders: It is FNA Time! 
FNA means Friday Night Association. Now in its 51st year, this is a chance 6th graders to join with CSG and Wellington students in a dance instruction and etiquette experience with Mr. FNA himself, dance instructor Ron Clark. The deadline for registration is Feb 1 and it begins Feb 13. (Yes, we know 2/13 is NOT a Friday night, but there is no school on 2/14 (for any of the schools). This allows us not to step on the dates for ski ciub or the MS musical.) REGISTRATION FORM HERE. 

Reminders from our last update: 

5/6th Grade Lacrosse Meeting is THIS THURSDAY 1/10

From Parent Coordinator Jen Nevaiser, here’s how you get your fifth or sixth grader signed up:
– Fill out this registration form for GIRLS or this one for BOYS
– Attend Jan 10th at 6pm registration meeting. Bring your check for registration and questions for the coaches.
For details on the program, you can visit PACA Youth Sports Page. 
– Other questions? Email Jen

Spring Gala 
If you would like to volunteer for Spring Gala, please send Tracie a note – she is still assembling her committee!

Ski Club
Ski club starts this Friday 1.11. Please make sure you have purchased your Snow Trails pass!  Mr. Arnold will let you know by noon on Friday if that day’s outing is cancelled due to inclement weather.

Thanks for all you do to help make Columbus Academy a wonderful community of learning and growing for our kids!
