Dear College Hills Parents & Guardians,


Welcome to College Hills 2017-2018 School year! I hope everyone has had a relaxing summer break! It was great seeing everyone at Parent Orientation Night with all the excitement of the new year. We have many planned activities this year for the students and families. Make sure to keep up to date through our campus and PTO social media, which are linked below.


The first week students have done a great job learning the procedures and processes at CHE and started to dive into the academics. We are working hard to ensure we learn each child’s unique learning needs to provide them with a successful year. If you have any concerns at any time please communicate with your child’s teachers to help us maintain a cohesive learning environment.


Let's have have great year learning together!


Have a Tigerific Day!

CHE… Rich Traditions... Bright Futures...

PTO meeting schedule

With remind & Facebook, parents can receive helpful reminders and interesting news where it is most convenient.

We are hoping to go more paperless in our communications. If it's important, we'll text you if you've signed up for remind with the PTO. Please note that many teachers also use remind. Be sure to sign up for each group.


We share even more info for parents through Facebook for the school here and for the PTO here. It is encouraged that parents toggle on "Get Notifications" on the top of our pages. Otherwise, many posts will not be included in your news feed without being boosted with an ad buy. We'd rather spend our money on the kids:)
