Welcome To

The Pre-K Grade Level Page

We are looking forward to an exciting first year here at Columbus Academy! This page will be managed by myself, Emmy Mitchell; Pre-K Grade Parent for the 2018-19 school year. Here you will be able to find all Pre-K grade-specific information, including important dates, reminders and sign-up links. More specific event information will be sent via an Evite or other for in order to protect the privacy of our students and families. New information will be added as I receive it, but if you make a habit of checking this page on a weekly basis you are sure to miss nothing!

  • Any Division News for The Lower School can be found HERE.
  • News important to Columbus Academy as a whole can be found HERE.

Another page you will want to check weekly is your child’s Pre-K Room Page. Below you can find links to both the Sun Ray Room (Mrs. Simmons & Mrs. Penney), and the Cacti Room (Mrs. Cherry & Mrs. Schreiber).

I know that you have received more emails that you would ever want to read, and you will be happy to know that there is a school-wide effort in the works to streamline communications, so that most important information can be gathered right here on this site! So, Get On The PACA Bus!
