Happy New Year!   The PTC thanks every individual who took the time and care to sponsor a student or family, shop and beautifully wrap their gifts for the Giving Tree this past holiday. Twelve Cottage Hill families benefited thanks to your generosity!  With your help we look forward to continuing to serve our students and school community in the new year!
Welcome back from Winter Break Cottage Hill families.  The next PTC meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 9th at 12:30 pm in Room 17.  We will hear outcomes from Mistletoe Mall and assess/discuss the possibility of a mid-year contribution to the school.  Exciting!  Please join us!
When we return from break, PTC will be collecting wrapping paper rolls and gently used gift bags. We will be looking for new or partially used wrapping paper on the roll and any new or used-but-in-good condition gift bags that you don't feel like storing for a year. We will use it for our 2019 Mistletoe Mall. So as you're cleaning up after your celebration, please consider keeping any of these items and donating them in January! 
We wish you all a wonderful break and holiday this year.

Cocoa for Camp Fire!

PTC & The Mistletoe Mall Committee want to say "THANK YOU" to all of our Cottage Hill families! You have again made this event a great success. Thank you to those that donated everything from paper grocery bags, items to sell, money towards our scholarship program and your time to volunteer!
Because of all of you and your holiday spirit:
- We collected more than enough bags to use for all the shoppers!
- So many families checked the box to donate the change from their students shopping, that we covered our entire scholarship fund for the year! 
- We had so many volunteers we got every class through smoothly!
- We had so much fun helping the kids shop for their family and friends!
- We are already excited and thinking about next year! We have decided to have a collection in January, for any extra wrapping paper and gently used gift bags. So hang on to those this year! These collections help keep our costs low and it offers a way to donate items that might otherwise go to the trash.

Thank you for a wonderful 2018 Mistletoe Mall. 
Wow!  We have an incredible mountain of clothing in our Lost and Found, including some nice warm coats that I'm sure are needed right now...
Please come by the MPR and check out the stage area where the clothes are spread out.  We will hold onto the clothing until December 21st, then everything will be donated to charity.
Hello wonderful families,
