Let's Get the Kids Together for Some Fun!

If they've been hoping to go to Altitude, this is the night--fun with familiar faces for the kids, a discount for parents and a profit share for the school!

We are getting a special rate of $15 for 2 hours of jump time. People can come anytime between 3-9 pm -- just need to say they are with College Hills Elementary.

Altitude requires their safety socks which they offer for $2 if you do not already have a pair.

Book Fair Volunteers Needed

Have any photos for our yearbook?

One day photos on your phone could be priceless to another family. Let's face it, we can't wait to see them already! If you have photos from school events, please email them to collegehillspto@gmail.com and include the teacher, grade etc. We'll add them to end of year presentations and the yearbook. The deadline to do this is usually early March. Thanks!
