5th Grade Parents – Earn Money Toward High Trails

High Trails

Are you the parent of a 5th grader?  As you may know the 5th graders go to High Trails on a camp retreat is Florissant, Colorado from May 2 – May 4th.  This is a fabulous trip that the kids look forward to all year long.  The cost of the trip is approximately $250.00.

As a parent, you can earn money toward your child’s trip fee by shopping at King Soopers.   Purchase a High Trails King Soopers Card for $5 (pre-loaded with $5), and use this card when you grocery shop or buy gas at King Soopers.  King Soopers will donate 5% of your purchases to your own child’s trip fee!!!  You can reload the card as often as you like.  In past year, some children have had their entire trip paid for!

To purchase a High Trails King Soopers card, please contact Jennifer Bub at bub_jennifer@msn.com.  Feel free to purchase multiple card for local relatives or grandparents : )

*Please note:  The High Trails King Soopers card is separate from the PTO King Soopers card that you may have purchased on Registration Day.  The 5% for the PTO card is donated the the general Cottonwood Creek PTO fund, another great cause.

Welcome Back to Cottonwood!

Thank you to everyone who came out to Registration Day on Monday the 10th!  We hope you found all the information you needed.  Please do not hesitate to Contact the PTO if you have any further questions.  Our first PTO meeting will be on Friday, August 28th at 8 am in the Library.  Kids are welcome.

Thank you for all of the great feedback on the website and the ROAR Reward key cards.  We hope you will continue to visit this site as it will be frequently updated with important information.   In addition, we appreciate your willingness to learn more about how our ROAR Reward partners work with our PTO.  Just a quick reminder that the key card is not a scan card for the restaurants.  The card should serve as a reminder of our partners and act as an easy way to reference our website and obtain information about how you can tie into our business partners.

In the next few weeks, you should be receiving information via email regarding how to get involved at Cottonwood.  Please be on the lookout!.  This email will inform you as to how to sign up for volunteer opportunities throughout our school.

Good luck on Thursday!!!

You are PTO!

What?  I aPTO logom PTO?  You mean, you are the PTO.

Yes, I am PTO, but so are YOU!  We all are!  By nature of having a child attend Cottonwood Creek Elementary, you are a member of the Cottonwood Creek PTO!

What does that mean?  Do I have to volunteer everyday?  Go to all the meetings?  I don’t get it.

What being a member of our PTO means is Your Voice Matters!  Your opinions matter! Yes, we would love for you to come to our monthly PTO meetings.  But yes, we totally understand that meeting attendance is not possible for everyone based upon personal schedules.  We would like to keep you in the know as to what is happening around our school.  We hope you can attend a meeting or a few, but if you can not, we hope you will find this website extremely helpful.

This website will be your go to place for much of the information you need to navigate through the school year.  We will post PTO meeting minutes here, along with upcoming events, fundraising goals and events as well as volunteer opportunities.

I would like to help out; however, I work during the school day.

There are several ways to help out at Cottonwood.  Yes, daytime volunteer hours are an option, but we realize they are not convenient for everyone.  On this website, we will explain all of the possible ways to contribute to Cottonwood and the numerous ways you can get involved if you so choose.

Thank you for reading this far.  We hope you continue to explore this website now that you realize YOU ARE PTO!
