Monday is a holiday, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King. There is no school for students. Have a PEACEFUL three day weekend!
This school year has presented several opportunities to exercise flexibility with scheduling and staff. The PTC is no exception. As we bid a fond farewell to Mrs. Mitchell of WonderGround Science for the remainder of the school year (she has embarked on the final stage of her multiple-subject credential requirements), we excitedly anticipate the beginning of a new program at Cottage Hill School. The PTC is proud to introduce Megan Schumacher as the “Rhythm, Movement, Performing Arts Instructor.” Megan is a highly qualified specialist who will instruct and delight our students and staff with a variety of song, dance, and movement lessons at every grade level. Once a month your student(s) will participate in a variety of activities designed to engage, encourage and educate their physical and sensory selves. Program begins next week! One of the most fortunate aspects of Megan’s presence on campus is that she is very familiar with many of the students, four of which are her own. The PTC welcomes Mrs. Schumacher and wishes her joy and satisfaction in working with the kids for the remainder of the school year!
Happy New Year Cottage Hill families! Welcome back to school. The Parent Teacher Club will meet next Wednesday, January 15th at 12:30pm in room 17. As usual we have so much to discuss: the success of Mistletoe Mall, MTM Pancake Breakfast and “The Giving Tree” program, voting will take place for exciting upcoming events on campus, final details of the “Souper Luncheon,” as well as upcoming spring events (Teacher Appreciation Week, Art Wear fundraiser). Stay tuned for a VERY important announcement for the students and staff at Cottage Hill to be announced shortly. SO MUCH GOOD STUFF! Come join us!
Happy New Year! School resumes tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7th.
Martin Luther King Holiday - January 20

THE BAND SCHEDULE CHANGES AFTER WINTER BREAK!
Beginning January 7th, the Band Schedule will be as follows:

The Winter Concert will be January 23rd.
Tomorrow (Friday) is a minimum day. School is dismissed at 12:00. THERE WILL BE AFTER SCHOOL REC.
This Friday will be the last day for our amazing Ms. Hioki! She is taking a leave of absence in order to finish her degree in School Counseling. Ms. Hioki will be doing an internship in Grass Valley. She will be back in June to say goodbye to all her kiddos for the summer.
After Winter Break, Mrs. Hahn will be taking over the Kindness Crew duties in the mornings, four days per week. So your children will still get to participate in all their kindness activities, and she will be available to work with students during the day.
Good luck and best wishes to Ms. Hioki! You are an important part of Cottage Hill and we will miss you!
The weather may have turned chilly and damp, but there is plenty of fun in the school garden to be had. Led by Anna Mudd (Sierra Harvest Liaison), Mrs. Toft’s 3rd grade class helped construct an open-air compost bin by up cycling wood palates and explored rich compost soil(worms!) last week. The Sierra Harvest program is paid for with money generously provided by parents from the Jog-A-Thon. Your money at work!
