Welcome to a new school year and our new PTA website!  We hope that the upgraded site will help our school “climb to new heights” by allowing parents to get involved and stay engaged. With all new things, it will take some getting used to, so please bear with us!  


Our school relies heavily on the efforts of the PTA which cannot be successful without dedicated members. If you would like to get involved in your child's school community this year, please reach out to me or Samantha McMillan (ctesvolunteers@gmail.com). We need you!


As always, please feel free to contact me any time if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas.  I hope everyone will join the PTA to help make this another exciting and successful school year at Colonial Trail Elementary!

CTES PTA President



I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Heather Kirschner who helped in the creation and implementation of our new website. I couldn't have done it without you:)


Thanks to this community's generosity during the Boosterthon Fun Run last year, the PTA was able to purchase Literacy Footprints and the Quaver music program for our students.  This would not have been possible without the fundraising efforts of our families, so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!





Cubs in Action 
Mrs. Reece and the Cubs in Action (CIA) are collecting coats, blankets, and new socks for the homeless in Henrico County. Please send in donations with your student to be placed in their designated grade level boxes. The grade level with the most donations will receive a Hot Cocoa party! Thank you for supporting the CIA and helping others in our community!
