Our amazing organization is made up of numerous parent volunteers and each month the PTA would like to recognize a few individuals who you may not know are working behind the scenes for your students and their school.  These are some faces you should get to know:)


Lindsay Downing

Lindsay is our PTA Treasurer, and the keeper of all things financial!  She balances our books and keeps track of all the funds we use to pay for the school's educational enhancements. In addition to handling all the PTAs accounting needs, she is the mom of two wonderful kiddos, and works as a substitute teacher here at CTES. She has served on the board for several years and continues to be a valuable asset to Colonial Trail!  We are so lucky to have such a kind, caring, and dedicated volunteer! You are marvelous!


Thank you Lindsay!



Lois Rothel

Hospitality is Lois' middle name!  She has served as the PTAs Hospitality Chairperson for numerous years and loves to show the faculty and staff how much we appreciate them! She is the mom of two great girls and an all around contributor to our community.  You can always count on Lois to show up and pitch in!  She is the ultimate gift giver and her hospitality knows no bounds!  Thank you for always making everyone feel so special!  If you see her around, please show her some love!
Thank you Lois!


Justin Simpkins 
"Mr. Justin" is the person you need to thank for teaching your kids the basic survival skills of an elementary school cafeteria - how to open their milk cartons and chip bags;)  He is the father of two amazing girls and works as the school cafeteria monitor.  If you've ever visited your child at lunch, you know a little of the chaos that he manages every day! Justin also voluntarily collects Coke Rewards to earn money for our school and helps to update the marquee at the front entrance.  Gary, you're the best!
Thank you Justin!
