Columbus Grove School is excited to announce the introduction of a program called Bulldogs LEAD - a K-12 school wide character campaign. Each quarter will focus on a different character trait and a life skill. Each quarter teachers will nominate students and co-workers who display the character trait.

At the end of the year all individuals that have been recognized will be invited to a luncheon.
