“Give a Little Bit, Give a Little Bit of Your Time to Me...”
Okay, you’re right we tweaked the lyrics a “little bit” but you get the point.  The Parent Teacher Club is announcing the opening of all four board member positions for the 2019-2020 school year.  Elections will be held at the general meeting on April 10th 2019 in Room 17.  The nomination of yourself or a trusted friend may be submitted at the March 13th PTC meeting or via e-mail to ediekodet@gmail.com (anytime between now and the April meeting).  Over the next few weeks posts will be sent out with a bit of information regarding each board member’s position and some personal insight from the current member.  Keep your eyes and hearts open to an excellent opportunity to give time to the hard-working staff and fun-loving students at Cottage Hill Elementary School.
