The Colina PTSA wants to give a HUGE shout out and thank you to Domino’s Pizza for donating 10 pizzas to the PTSA Sponsor Lunch with Mr. Frank on May 22. Way to support your community school, Domino’s!  

📷Direct Donation/Spring Locker Drive LIMITED!!


Current 6th and 7th graders! This is the last call this year from the PTSA for our Direct Donation/ Locker Drive. We know that schedules can get crazy and adding one more thing can seem overwhelming. Instead of launching several fundraisers over the school year to fund all our great Cougar programming, the Colina PTSA started a very successful direct donation campaign last year. Make your tax deductible donations now at for the 2019/2020 school year and your student may be eligible to choose his or her own locker size and location before this year even ends! There are also many other perks depending on your level of support. Check out the website for all the details. Thanks in advance for your generosity! We could not do this without you. 

Every dollar counts. All donations are tax deductible.
