Each Veterans Day, our nation extends thanks and gratitude to veterans and active military personnel whose sacrifices have preserved the freedoms we as Americans enjoy. In addition to the tributes organized on Veterans Day, we can show our veterans and active military that their efforts are appreciated each and every day by using the freedoms we have been granted responsibly, and by using the opportunities these freedoms afford to help build a brighter future for all. To our students- and everyone else- who display good citizenship and a willingness to share special talents for the benefit of the school community- thank you!- for such efforts serve as evidence that the sacrifices of our service men and service women have not been wasted.
Southern Columbia's students regularly show an appreciation for the efforts of our nation's veterans and active military personnel by engaging in daily displays of good citizenship!

This honor is given to a K-4 student who consistently follows school rules, has been a model citizen, and who goes above and beyond expectations to be a positive member of the school community. The Citizen of the Month attends the monthly Board of Education meeting and opens the meeting by leading the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. Pictured is the October 2017 Citizen of the Month, Fourth Grade student Braylon Feese.
