How does the PTO raise money? 

CIS-PTO sponsors four major fundraisers throughout the year to support the fun and educational programs taking place at Columbia Intermediate School.

– POTH, more commonly known as Puttin’ On The Hits, is a lip sync contest, and is one of the most iconic CIS events of the year. Serious students with the flare for drama and music prepare months for this competition. Complete with costumes and choreography, POTH holds auditions for the top 20-25 groups to perform at KHS auditorium in the last weekend of February. Watch for the newsletter with meetings, try outs and performance dates. POTH has 2 performances: Friday night Preview Night, which now includes The People’s Choice Award, where the audience votes, via smart phones to declare their favorites, and the actual competition Saturday night, including a distinguished panel of judges to evaluate, critic and declare 3 winners from each grade.  Due to the high popularity of these shows, get your tickets ASAP when they go on sale! You won’t want to miss the show!

– SPIRITWEAR – Spirit! Let’s Hear it…or at least wear it. We will feature Class Of apparel for you to purchase which will feature KINGS KNIGHTS colors and logos.
