Kindergarten Round Up is coming!  The Round Up meeting for parents is March 20th in the MPR.  At that meeting you will receive a registration packet and sign up for a screening time for your child on the following day (March 21).  
Students are placed in classes in August and parents are notified a few days before school starts.  Students must have a copy of the birth certificate on file and verification of immunizations before they will be placed in a class.
Questions?  Call the office at 530-268-2808.  Know a new Kindergarten or TK parent?  Pass this information along!

Hello parents,

It’s time for the second box tops competition of the year! Flyers have already gone out to the teachers to remind the kids to turn in all of the box tops they’ve been saving since the last round. 

Each box top is worth ten cents so bring them in! The money earned per class goes right back to that class. So if 500 box tops are brought in then $50 will be given to that teacher for the classroom. Whichever class gets the most tops will also win a special treat provided by myself and checked with the teacher for classroom allergies.

When turning in tops to your teachers, please turn in ONLY box tops and not Labels for Education. I throw those out since we don’t have a liaison for them. Also, it would be a HUGE help if you sent them in already trimmed down to the dotted lines and throw away all of the expired ones. It takes hours to go through them so please trim and discard if possible. It also helps me save on shipping.

I think that’s everything! Please turn in all of those tops by this Thursday so that I can sort and get them all turned in on time. Let’s help these awesome teachers get some funds!

Thank you!

Yearbooks are on sale now through April 8th.  Go to to order yours today!   Soft cover yearbooks are $20, other styles are also available.  You can include a "PDA" (personal display of affection) for your child by picking up an order form from the front office.  The deadline to submit PDA's is April 6th.
Also, if you have any pictures you would like to share with us for the yearbook they can be uploaded to Lifetouch under the specific category ie: Jog a thon, Assemblies etc.  Go to and enter our school code BWMCWN to access the photo uploads.  
Snow Day?  Snow days are usually called when there is ice on the road in Alta Sierra and the buses can't make their routes safely.  If buses can't travel in Alta Sierra, PRSD calls a snow day for the whole district (even if roads are clear surrounding Cottage Hill).  If we have a snow day, you will receive a phone call from the district office in the morning.  If you have your email listed in power school, you will also receive an email.  Snow Days are also posted on the school/district websites.
There are times that NU cancels school due to ice in Grass Valley and Bear River has to close, even though PRSD is remaining open.  Please check your voice mail and/or the school websites to determine if PRSD is declaring a snow day.  Thank you!

PTC hosting Staff Appreciation Luncheon

Here is a message from the Cottage Hill PTC!
It's hard to believe it's already mid January!! PTC is putting together a simple SOUP lunch for our wonderful teachers and staff here at Cottage Hill. It's our "SOUPer" luncheon. If you would like to donate please bring your item(s) in the morning of Thursday, January 25th no later than 10:30 a.m. to the staff lounge or leave it with the front office. Thank you all so much for helping us make these events so special  :)) "

Academic Talent Search 2018

Academic Talent Search offers 4-9th graders exciting summer courses to choose from at Sacramento State University in subjects like LEGO Robotics, Video Game Development, Neuropsychology, and All the World's a Stage (depending on qualifications).  
To join these interactive and hands-on classes, you need to take the ATS Qualifying Exam.  The test only takes an hour and there is no pass or fail, so no need to stress!  Your score determines what classes you are qualified to sign up for.  Taking the test does not mean you MUST sign up for classes.  
The test will be given at Cottage Hill during school hours in early February.  There is no cost to take the test, but parents must sign a permission slip.  Permission slips and additional information are available in the office.  The deadline for turning in the permission slip is February 2nd.
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!!!
Happy New Year!
Monday, January 8th is a Professional Development Day for teachers.  There is no school for students.  We will see everyone back on Tuesday, January 9th!

Sweatshirt Orders

We will be sending in the next sweatshirt order after Winter Break!  Order forms are in the office and can be picked up this week or the week we come back.

"It's such a fantastic time to be a Cottage Hill Cub.  Love and generosity abounds in the front office of our school.  As you can see the "Giving Tree" has been a phenomenal success!  The PTC thanks every individual who took the time and care to sponsor a student, shop, and beautifully wrap their gift.  If you have your gift at home awaiting it's wrapping, please bring it in by the end of the school day this Wednesday, December 20th.  Thank you again and Happy Holidays."

Lost and Found Deadline...

The Lost and Found is OVER FLOWING with coats, sweaters, shirts, hats, etc.  Friday, December 22 is the LAST DAY to pick up items from the Lost and Found.  All items left at 2:00 will be donated.  Please stop by and look for any items that belong to your family; all clothing is displayed in the courtyard each day, weather permitting.  Thank you!

"Looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of others this holiday season?  Starting tomorrow, the PTC welcomes you to stop by the front office of Cottage Hill school to select an ornament from the "Joy of Giving Tree."  Each ornament is an opportunity to make a charitable donation of goods to a student/family in need attending our school.  To participate, follow these simple steps:
1. Select an ornament from the "Joy of Giving Tree" that matches up with your donation expectations.
2. Register your name and contact number for that specific ornament/gift on the chart by the tree.
3. Purchase and gift wrap your designated gift item(s).
4. Write the gift code (located on the ornament) on the wrapping paper with black, permanent marker.
5. Return gift(s) to the front office (by December 21st, or earlier) to be placed under the tree and ultimately into the hands of a grateful recipient."
LAST CHANCE! This is the final week of the PTC Clothing Drive! Donation bins will be outside of room 17 all week for your gently used clothing, shoes, linens, towels, blankets and stuffed animals. Let's finish strong!
