PTC Fundraising Celebrations!

Hello All!  As we bring this year to a close, I wanted to thank the Parents' Club and all our parents for their fundraising projects this year!  As a result of everyone's hard work, this week PTC was able to order 6 more picnic tables for the courtyard and 20 Chrome Books for our classrooms!  This is very exciting, and our teachers and students are extremely grateful!


Yearbooks are still available!  If you did not pre-order a yearbook, you can still get one in the office for $25 (cash only) while they last!  Yearbooks will be distributed during the last week of school.

Calendar for Next Year is Approved!

The school calendar for next year was approved by the Board Tuesday night.  You can access the new calendar by going to the Cottage Hill website and clicking on the Calendar title; a PDF version of the calendar will pop up.  Please check the dates for first day of school, October break, and holidays.  Thanks!

Sunny Weather!

With the sunny weather now here (thank goodness!), keep in mind that your child may need sun screen to prevent a sun burn.  We can't apply it here, so we suggest you put it on them before they leave home in the morning.  It is also important to remember that our school dress code does not allow racer back, or backless tops.  Wearing sleeves that cover the shoulders is another good way to avoid sun burn!
