St. Columba School celebrates 60th anniversary as Principal Christine Patton marking her retirement
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, St. Columba School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, held a picnic for its community on June 4 complete with food, music, games and a moon bounce. This occasion, which was attended by parishioners, students, alumni, employees and teachers, coincided with Principal Christine Patton’s upcoming retirement after this school year concluded.
Since she graduated from St. Columba School in 1969 as a member of the school’s inaugural graduating class, St. Columba has played a significant role in her life. She was married at St. Columba Church and sent her three children to learn at the school. Patton transitioned from volunteer to librarian, to teacher, and finally, to principal.
