27 March 2024

 This year Columbia will again be offering the SchoolKidz supply kit program which offers pre-packaged, school supply boxes filled with the exact items requested by your child's teacher. The box comes directly to Columbia over the summer and we will have it on your student's desk ready for our Open House and the 1st day of school.

Why fight the hassle of retail when there's a cost effective and convenient way of purchasing your back-to-school supplies for the 2024-2025 school year? Skip the lines this summer. Would you rather spend a summer day driving from store to store to purchase school supplies or get everything you need in one easy box? Supply orders include the exact colors, quantities, and brands your teachers have approved for class. Get your back-to-school shopping out of the way early and enjoy a summer day!

Simply place your order by May 24th .

Order online at www.shopttkits.com.

The mission of Columbia School is to ensure that all programs are dedicated toward enhancing student achievement and that each school is a humanistic organization, valuing students emotionally and academically providing the highest quality education possible in a personalized environment. We aspire to enable each student to realize maximum potential as a responsible citizen who will enhance the community and society.
