Thank you to all of the grandparents and special elders that joined us on Friday, October 11, 2019 for Saint Columbkille Partnership School’s Grandparent/Special Elder Day. The school had more than 200 visitors from across the country and the world, including Australia, Peru and Egypt.
News & Announcements
In 1939, Saint Columbkille offered football, baseball and basketball for high school students. Sports have come a long way in the last 80 years. Today, Saint Columbkille students are active, healthy and engage in friendly competition.
It is with great enthusiasm that the school has completed the long overdue renovation of the gymnasium. Original construction of the gym was completed in September 1901. It was named Verdi Hall by the founding pastor of St. Columbkille Church, Father Rossi, who was a fan of the Italian opera composer Giuseppe Verdi. At that time, the space was used as a performance hall.
At the 2019 Come Home to Columb event, the Honan family received the Distinguished Alumni Award.
On Thursday, December 13, 2018, members of the class of 1962 celebrated a nearly $13,000 donation to Saint Columbkille Partnership School.
On Friday, October 5, 2018, about 200 grandparents and special elders (including seven alumni) joined us at Saint Columbkille Partnership School to spend the morning with their students.
