Secondly, if you haven’t subscribed, please go to www.colinaptsa.com/blog and sign up to receive all PTSA news, details about events and volunteer opportunities.


Hopefully you are all settling into a routine, whether you are a returning family or completely new.

We had some initial problems with the sign in, but these have now been resolved.


Any general PTSA questions can be asked to your board, and our president, Michelle Garcia will be happy to help (colinaptsa@gmail.com).

PTSA General Assembly Meeting

Please make time to attend our inaugural General Assembly meeting. Our speaker is from CVUSD Student Support Services, a fantastic, but under-utilized service for you and your student(s).


They will talk about how they strive to serve the whole student by providing assistance for everyone from GATE students to those with special needs, support students in foster care and those with long term illnesses or other issues.


Other services include Conejo Closet and the Substance Abuse education program.


This invaluable information will help you navigate every stage and challenge of your children’s school career.


There will be ample opportunity for a Q&A.
