Southern Columbia Area's inaugural Color Run was a tremendous success with several hundred supporters participating in the event's 5K and Fun Run. The Color Run was organized by Middle School Teacher Cathy Schicchitano to raise awareness and financial support for the District's School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) program. "tt was a total team effort and staff at all levels were involved," stated Mrs.Schicchitano. "I was so happy to see all of the families running together."   Elementary Teacher Andreia Walshaw, who coordinates the K-4 SWPBIS efforts, extended thanks to all who participated or who helped in any way to make the Color Run a success.   "I cannot begin to thank you enough," stated Mrs.Walshaw.  "You are all awesome!" 
 
Congratulations to our SWBIS leaders for a job well done! Thank you for your ongoing efforts to provide a postive atmosphere in our schools!
