Our St. Columba eighth graders presented their cases to the school as to why they should be elected as part of the 2021-2022 student council.

Keep checking back to see who won the election of 2021-2022. Here Jacob Guerriero informs the middles school about his platform for school secretary.

Our Saint Columba School students created works of art for the school's Bloomsburg Fair stand. The art might look like a mess but in reality each piece is an example of the fluidity of art. The oil on canvas is a unique creation in which our students expressed their artistic views. We hope all of you had a chance to see our fair display in the Educational Building at the fair.

The students had tons of fun splashing, swimming, and climbing on the sea creatures. There were snacks too for all the students, because what's a party without snacks? Everyone had a great time, and we look forward to more of these events throughout our school year.

We look forward to many great years together.
