Welcome to Columbus Catholic

National Catholic Schools Week

Please join us for National Catholic Schools Week, our annual celebration of what makes education at Cedar Valley Catholic Schools outstanding. Starting with Sunday Masses on January 25, we have a whole week of activities planned to show what our students are accomplishing and to celebrate the community we have built to educate tomorrow’s citizens and church leaders.

This year’s National Catholic Schools Week theme centers on community: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”The theme highlights the fact that schools are not only communities themselves; they are also part of many other communities, including families, parishes, towns/cities and our country.

The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options. They are why families make sacrifices to provide their children with a Catholic education.

We hope you will visit our Cedar Valley Catholic Schools during National Catholic Schools Week to enjoy the students’ masses and programs and learn about their faith development and community service projects. Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may be considering Catholic education for their children.

We are so grateful every day for the teachers, staff, board members, parents and volunteers who make our Cedar Valley Catholic Schools a success. National Catholic Schools Week is a good time for all of us to thank them for their dedication and service.

If you are a CVCS Family invite other families to visit our schools and consider enrolling their children in one of our five schools. Together we can make a difference in the future of our children and communities.

Jordan Sadecki Named Teacher of the Week by 93.5 THE MIX

Nomination by Kyle Weber

"Miss Sadecki is rebuilding the instrumental music department at Columbus and with all the 5th-12th grade students in the Cedar Valley Catholic School system. The music department has been in a period of transition for many years. The seniors this year have had four different choir teachers, and as a result participation has dropped significantly. 

Students and Miss Sadecki have also dealt with a transition in musical direction in her short time there. Miss Sadecki, only having been there 4 years (I believe), has become the rock to their fine arts needs. The students respect her, and the band is growing each year in talent and size.

She teaches the various Catholic elementary 5th graders weekly before school, the Blessed Maria Assunta Pollata Concert Band students in the morning, and Concert Band at Columbus in the afternoon. She also holds band lessons, directs a pep band, high school show choir pit, musical orchestra, jazz band, and hopes to start a marching band when the band is large enough. 

Obviously, she is hard at work at all hours of the day. To top it off, she is one of the most faith-filled teachers in the CVCS system. She leads the students by example and shows them how to be young, professional, excitable, artistic, flexible, and faithful. "
