Staying Up-to-date with our Cordelia Hills PTA

Our PTA has a new website. Check it out and also check out the PTA calendar for the year. We have our first fundraiser coming up early in the year and it is for grades 3-5. Check out the links below:

Lastly, our first fundraiser is underway. We know it is early but we wanted to change things up this year and try to space things out. This Z Best Coupon Book fundraiser is for Grades 3-5. Lower grades will have a more age appropriate fundraiser later next month. If you are interested in the book you can find a copy here https://online.flippingbook.com/view/548551/ Feel free to email Brenda Torres, PTA, with any questions at btorres.pta@gmail.com with any questions.

Traffic Reminders

As most of you know, our streets are not totally equipped to handle all of the traffic that comes with elementary school, especially at pick-up and drop-off. Please adhere to the following:


1. Follow all traffic rules/laws.

2. Avoid U-Turns in front of the school.

3. Avoid use of the bus/daycare van zone. It's for daycare vans and buses.

4. The main parking area is for employees, handicap drivers, TAP/SCIL students and buses, and for guests in non drop-off/pick-up times.

5. Please cooperate with staff. They aren't trying to make you miserable. They are trying to maintain traffic flow and safety for students/pedestrians.

6. Use Cross-Walks

7. Do not use the back gate unless you are walking from a home.

8. Avoid using the staff parking lot. We have 16 new staff members this year and need every spot.

1:1 Devices

We are excited to become a 1:1 school this year. This means every student in grades 1-5 will have access to a device. Every class in grades 2-5 will have one Chromebook per student. First grade will be ready to go soon.


Please note that all 5th graders will be taking the Chromebooks home and back to school each day. Taking devices home for grades 1-4 will be left up to teacher discretion. If for some reason, you REALLY don't want the CB to come home for your fifth grader, please communicate with the teacher about your request for it not to come home.
