From Mr. Frank 4/9

Dear Colina Parents-

Outdoor Ed Trip 2 campers are enjoying some great weather up at Camp Ramah!  Reminder that our campers will be returning on Thursday 4/11 around 11:30 am.  The luggage typically arrives before the campers so I suggest coming early.  This way you can locate your luggage put it in the car and wait to collect your student. 

Don't forget the Shutterfly account to keep up with the fun:

Dear Colina Families-


IT'S BACK!! - Get Your Child’s 2019-2020 Double or Triple Locker Now at

Is your child’s locker crammed too full of books? No room for an instrument? Is athletic equipment squished? Would your student love not having to wait for the new school year to figure out where their locker is and what will fit in it for organization and decoration? Now is your chance to secure a double or triple locker for next year!

From April 1 – April 24, this opportunity is open EXCLUSIVELY to current Colina students and on a first come, first served basis. If you make a donation to the PTSA of at least $375, you can secure your bigger locker for next year NOW!! After April 24, we will open the double and triple lockers up to future Cougar students (incoming 6th graders). Inventory is limited so get yours while you can!! 

The PTSA needs your help in continuing to make Colina the amazing school that it is today. We use your donations to fund school projects that go above and beyond what the school can do on it's own. Just this year, the PTSA sponsored a portion of the awesome new spin room, computer equipment, teacher training, student programs (like the talent show and the upcoming Science Olympiad) and thousands of dollars of supplies used directly in the classroom and library!  

See the attached form for donation levels and other great perks like the double or triple lockers, parking spaces at back to school night and MORE!  Don’t miss your chance!

Every dollar counts. All donations are tax deductible. 

Colina Honors Petitions for current 6th and 7th grade students and TA Applications for current 7th grade students are now available in the counseling office.  All petitions and applications are due Friday, May 3.

PTSA Student Group:

The Colina PTSA student group has a new important project for the spring. They want to help homeless population in the Thousand Oaks community. They are asking for small cash donations of $2-5. Small care packages with warm socks and other necessities will be bought and distributed through a shelter organizer.

There is an envelope in the front office for the donations.

A big thank you to everyone!
