Fall Family Fun Night and Halloween Parade!

This Friday is Fall Family Fun Night here at school!  Families may trick or treat at classroom doors and participate in other fun activities.  This is a FREE event for our families.  The festivities go from 6:00-8:00, and children (and adults!) are encouraged to wear costumes!
On Halloween day Cottage Hill will hold its annual Halloween Parade on the playground at 8:30.  Students may wear costumes to school that day.  We invite parents to come and watch!  Costumes should be "school appropriate"; please leave all masks and weapons at home.  Hats, face paint, and other props are welcome!  

Earthquake Drill

Today our students and staff practiced how they would respond in the event of an Earthquake.  There is no "alarm" for an earthquake, we just feel that it is happening and respond the way we have practiced (I just announced it today).  Students get under a desk or table, protecting their heads.  Teachers open doors and do the same.  If outside, students move away from buildings or any structures that might fall down.  Following a real earthquake, the fire alarm would sound so that everyone would leave the classroom while emergency personnel checked to make sure the rooms were safe.  Ask your child how the drill went today, and consider having a conversation about what your family would do if there were an earthquake at home!

Friday Sock Day AND Kindness/Red Assembly

Big day coming up this Friday!  Our first Character Counts assembly will be in the morning, recognizing students for Kindness. WEAR RED!

Box Tops Competition is Here!

Hi there parents!

This is just a quick e-mail to let you know about the Box Tops Competition going on in your children’s classrooms. The kids are turning in all of their box tops now so that the money earned from them (.10 a top) goes straight back to their classroom. So if 500 tops are brought in then that teacher will get a $50 check to do with whatever they like in the classroom. Along with that, the class that brings the most box tops in will get a special treat provided by me. I will be contacting the winning teacher to find out about specific allergies in the classroom so if you haven’t told them of any then please do so! 

Each year our school earns around $2000 so that is a lot of money brought in just by turning in bits of cardboard, paper and plastic. :)

When you send in the tops, please be sure to cut them out on the dotted line (or have your kiddo do it!) so that I can quickly organize them and send them in.

We are collecting now all the way to the last day before fall break starts. So make sure to get them all in by Friday, October 13th. I will be coming by each class to pick them up, organize them, and then send them out the next week. I will let teacher’s know which is the winning class and how much everyone brought in within that week or two.

Parents, thank you so much for helping raise funds for this awesome school and the hardworking teachers there! Have a wonderful weekend!
