Dear US Parents,

We wanted to share information on some upcoming events at the Upper School.

WINTER GATHERING EVENT; Monday, March 7th at 6 pm to 8:30 pm

We invite you to a Winter Gathering of Columbus Academy parents and guardians.
Please join us for a playful evening of food, games, and the opportunity to create connections within our wonderful community. We have missed seeing everyone and the long Ohio winter encouraged us to plan an in-person event to have some fun, share some food and enjoy one another’s company.
We hope to see you there!

VERY Casual Attire Masks and VIKING SPIRIT required
Childcare provided for students under Grade 7
