Skip Cooking 11/18 and support PACA!

On Wednesday, November 18, don’t worry about cooking! Support PACA by getting Chipotle (from the Gahanna location) for dinner that night! As you may know, PACA supports our school with funds for athletics, faculty resources, programming for students and parents, and more!

A percentage of the proceeds made from Chipotle sales on the 18th will go directly to PACA’s support for the school. Please see the attached flyer for the special code and important details, and spread the word!


Ski Club Update

Thanks to Laura Brentlinger for coordinating. From Laura:

There will be no ski club this year for CA, but individuals are welcome to purchase their own passes and ski on their own schedules.

For those interested in purchasing CA group discount season ski passes for Snow Trails go to the Snow Trails website to purchase your season pass at the pre-season/group rates. (you can purchase any type of pass that you’d like)

Website: https://www.snowtrails.com/seasonal-clubs

The group code for Columbus Academy is F15. You will find this in the pull-down menu after you select the type of pass you want. Discount Group Code is club2021. You will use this once the pass is in your cart, but before you check out.

Please note: Prices go up after November 15, but there is no expiration date.

Faculty Appreciation

Each faculty member received one of the “conference survival kits” for conferences this week, thanks to the hard work of our Teacher Appreciation Committee (Amanda Lee, Mary Smith, Christine Baker, Julie Wood). These kits were well received by the faculty!


Have a good week!
