It's that time again! Time to "round up" those students planning to go to TK or Kindergarten next year!
Our Round Up meeting for adults only will be March 20th at 6:30 in the MPR. At the meeting, parents will receive a registration packet and sign up for a screening time for their child on the following day.
Preschool registration will not take place until April 9th.
Greetings from the Cottage Hill Parent Teacher Club!
There is excitement buzzing in the air, and so much success to report from our January meeting, a few highlights were:
*$10,000.00 from the fall Jog-A-Thon event was allocated to buy Chrome Books. They are to be ordered ASAP.
*Mistletoe Mall and the Giving Tree were more successful than we ever hoped for; approximately 15 families here at Cottage Hill were recipients of gifts.
While we still have five meetings left in this school year, we are beginning to look towards planning for next year.
Jog-a-Thon, Fall Family Fun Night and Mistletoe Mall committees will begin meeting to brainstorm themes, activities and fun very soon. These committees all have chairpersons who are organizing the event at this time (something in itself to celebrate), however we are looking for parents who may be able to lend a helping hand with planning and/or helping out the day of the event. How much time are we talking about? Good question, approximately 3-5 hours of time leading up to the event for planning meetings and 3 hours on the day of the event. That’s right, less time than binge watching the first season of Downton Abbey on Netflix.
Also, elections are just around the corner and all board member positions (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary) will be open and available for new persons to run. All current board members will remain in the PTC general membership and will be available to assist new board members with questions and “shadowing/training.”
If you enjoy watching your Cottage Hill Cub(s) laugh, smile and play, come and join us, be a part of the fun. Our meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month at 12:30pm in Room 17. The next meeting will take place on Valentine’s Day!!!
Monday, January 8th is a Professional Development Day for all teachers. There is no school for students until Tuesday, January 9th.
