Welcome

Hello! I am the proud principal of Columbia Middle School and I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year and to our new website. It is my hope that we can provide a "one-stop shop" for information of interest to our students, parents, and teachers. We are excited for the upcoming year! We will be implementing PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) and have adopted school-wide core values. Everyone at CMS, adults and children alike, pledged to be: Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn. Check this site frequently for updates on PBIS and other school happenings.

Parent Workshop Opportunities April 4, 5, 6 and April 11, 12, 13

Lincoln and Columbia Middle schools are partnering with Lifeline Youth & Family Services to bring their Critical & Responsible Thinking (CRT) program to the parents of the middle school students in Logansport.  This program is designed to help parents with the pressures created when raising children. Participants are taught appropriate responses that can be used to make great choices in parenting, resulting in the development of positive decision-making processes that will affect the entire family.

Two different sessions are being offered at no cost to you.   You can attend any one, or all the classes being offered in April. Participants who attend all classes in either session will be entered in a drawing for a $50 Walmart gift card.

Pre-Registration must be completed by March 31, 2017.  Contact the Lincoln Middle School office at 574-753-7115 or http://www.lifelineyouth.org/critical-and-responsible-thinking.html
