A Shade Cover is Coming!

Our PTC led us in a highly successfully Jogathon fund raiser this year, and enough money was raised to fund the long-awaited shade structure project on the playground!  The cover will be installed later this year over the concrete picnic tables on the playground.  We are very excited about this project, and extremely grateful to our parents and PTC for raising the funds to complete it.  Once we have photographs and drawings available, we will proudly display them for all to see!

Halloween Parade

Cottage Hill will be celebrating Halloween this Friday, October 30th, with a Parade on the playground at 8:30.  Students are invited to dress up in their costumes and walk with their class.  Please be sure that all costumes are school-appropriate: no blood or gore and no weapons.  Yes...  a light saber is a weapon...  Please leave masks at home, and any fragile props that might get damaged during the day.  We would hate for anyone's costume to be spoiled before the actual night of trick or treating!
