About Columbia Heights PTO
We are a group of parents, grandparents and teachers who strive to strengthen the community aspect of Columbia Heights Elementary and to help make this school a positive and enriching experience for the students.
Parents or grandparents of a Columbia Heights Elementary School student are automatically members of CHE PTO. There are no forms to fill out and no dues.
Members wishing to volunteer must still fill out the required CHAMPS form. CHAMPS forms may be found at the school office.

Monthly PTO meetings
CHE PTO meets the third Thursday of each month at 6:30pm. Child care is provided.
At a PTO meeting we talk about upcoming events at our school. PTO meetings are a time to talk about what we’re doing and what we’re going to do to make our school a wonderful place to be. We brainstorm ideas on how to get more books, assemblies, P. E. equipment, playground equipment…all this to help our children learn and grow.
