Thank you to Kona Ice for supporting the Colina PTSA this year!


I'm pretty thankful for this fundraiser, to be honest. It was not fun trying to make a lei for my now 10th grader 2 years ago. Let our parter The Commencement Group do the hard work for you! You've got enough on your plate remembering to bring the sunscreen and water to Promotion. How nice would it be to just grab the greenery on site! Go to and pick your lei/bouquet. 20% of sales go to Colina PTSA!

P.S. Promotion is 6/10


2022-2023 PTSA Donation drive starts 4/1!

While it may feel early, given that some of the thank you's on offer are double, or even triple size lockers, we like to give Mrs. Carlson in the office the chance to start allocating lockers sooner than later. Fun Fact: there are 120+ double or triple size lockers available at Colina. Wouldn't it be great to give them all away as "thank you"s!

These past two years have been hard budget-wise, for obvious reasons. The ASB, teachers, and administration have really stepped up to keep Colina the special place we know and love. Our PTSA President and Executive VP, Kristine Campbell-Lopez and Leahastar Schwanauer, have been doing a great job trying to augment our funds with some of the fundraisers you've seen this year. Ideally, we are able to make most of the magic happen with Direct Donation.

Please be on the look out for an email and links on our social media asking you to consider direct donation for the 2022-2023 school year.


He's not quite a cougar, but Robert the cat thanks you for reading to the end of this newsletter! Yes, we did name our cat "Bob" feel free to tease me about it so I know you made it to the end.
