Donations Needed - 1st Quarter

Hi Cresthill Families, you have been asking us about how you can help us out. We have attached a Signup genius of items that will help us make it through the day. If you are able to donate an item we would really appreciate it. Donations can be brought into the office. Thank you for showing your support.

Supporting Cresthill

We appreciate the support of our community. Cresthill does not have a PTO program and we limit fundraisers. We do rely on your generosity and support with these programs:
Do you shop at King Soopers? Did you know that King Soopers offers community rewards? WE have approximately 110 families who have designated Cresthill to receive funds. We would love to increase that number. The quarterly checks we receive from King Soopers really make a difference to our school budget.

Once logged into your King Soopers or City Market account go to:

Savings and Rewards > King Soopers Community Rewards then you can search for Cresthill Middle School either by name or YJ180 and then click Enroll.

New users will need to create an account which requires some basic information, a valid email address and a loyalty card.

Thank you!
