Dear Columbus Families,

The first week of school was a great success. I want to thank you for helping make a smooth start to a great year for our students. Once again, Columbus Elementary is filled with over 500 eager learners, making it a little busy at the beginning and the end of the school day.

We ask that you have your child enter the school through the cafeteria doors at 7:30 or through the front doors at 7:55. Give them a quick hug and good bye and we will escort them to class. School staff is available throughout the building to help students get to class.


Kathi Fowler, Principal

Free Breakfast/Lunch For All Students

We are pleased to inform you that the McMinnville School District will be participating in a one year pilot option for our school breakfast and lunch program funded by the USDA Child Nutrition Program.

This new option, called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is only available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

This will be a one year pilot program for the 2014-2015 school year.  The program may continue past the pilot year if there is strong meal participation. | Complete information

Address or Phone Number Change

Please contact the office, 503-565-4600 or, if your address or phone number has changed.  We can’t mail your child’s report card to you or contact you if it is returned unless we have current information.  Our offices will be closed the month of July.
