Welcome Back CA Upper School Parents



Welcome Back to School! Hope everyone got off to a great start and ready for the new school year.

Amanda Lee and Heather Hunter are the new PACA (Parents’ Association of Columbus Academy) upper school lead parents this year. For those new to the school, the upper school lead parents will send out two emails a month detailing certain events, dates, speakers, gatherings, fundraising events, and any upcoming upper school news. We also have wonderful grade level parents that will help facilitate and organize events that pertain to their grade. Each grade parent will be sending out their own email introducing themselves. Our grade level parents will be a great resource for questions pertaining to your child’s grade.

Let the games begin! Get your pencils and calendars out and start the planning so you don’t miss upcoming events. This will be an amazing year and we look forward to helping and working within the Academy community! Please don’t hesitate to reach out and we want to wish each family a wonderful year ahead.
Let’s Go VIKES!!
