Mistletoe Mall is in full swing! The students that have shopped already have seemed to have a blast and we are ready for those who are shopping today and tomorrow. Tuesday is the last day of the Mall, and we have Make Up Shopping from 1:00 - 2:00 pm. If your child was absent or forgot their money on shopping day, they are welcome during this time slot. We are closing early today, there will be no open hours or after school hours Monday. Open hours for Tuesday are extended form 2:00 - 5:00 pm. Magnolia student and Cottage Hill siblings are invited to shop during this time.
Still looking for a way to spread some Holiday Joy?
There are still some ornaments on the Giving Tree! Each ornament has a gift request for a boy or girl in our community. Choose an ornament and sign it out, then shop for and wrap the item. Bring it back to the tree with the tag attached so it goes to the right child. The deadline for bringing in wrapped gifts is Tuesday, December 18th. Thank you for your generosity!
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all the families who contributed to the Packs for Paradise effort! Today was our final day to collect backpacks, and in total we collected over 250 packs full of comfort, supplies, and LOVE! As the needs of the Camp Fire community change, we will help in whatever way we can.
Cookie Dough and Catalog Orders will be ready for pick up tomorrow during the day until 5:30 in the MPR!
The Band Schedule Has Changed!
Starting this week, woodwinds are on Monday/Wednesday and Brass is on Tuesday/Thursday. You can check the school calendar on the website to check if you need to. This schedule will be through December.
In January Monday is Woodwinds, Wednesdays is Brass and Tuesday/Thursday is Full Band.
COOKIE DOUGH AND CATALOG ORDERS WILL BE HERE WEDNESDAY!
The cookie dough and catalog orders will be going home on Wednesday. Small orders (3 or fewer items and no cookie dough) will go home with students. Larger orders and all cookie dough needs to be picked up in the MPR. Orders can be picked up during the day, or after school until 5:30.
Pajama Day Tomorrow! All grade levels are celebrating a (make up) PJ Day tomorrow! We are also holding our make up Character Counts assembly at the usual times...
Wow!!!! What a generous school community we have here at Cottage Hill! 215 backpacks, full of love and supplies, have been brought in to school today for children experiencing loss from the Camp Fire in Paradise. The first load of packs will be driven up today after school to Wilson Elementary School in Gridley.
There is still time to put a backpack together if you'd like to contribute. The 9-12 yrs and 13-16+yrs age ranges are especially in need of fulfillment at this time. There has not been a deadline set for this event. Backpacks will continue to be collected after the Thanksgiving Break. Thank you to all for your time and care in reaching out to provide for those in need.
Here is a picture of Mrs. McCutcheon's car... 215 backpacks are going to Gridley today. We will continue to collect backpacks after Thanksgiving if you would still like to participate in Packs for Paradise!
PJ Day and Assemblies will be rescheduled! We wouldn't want to miss out honoring our super respectful students, and we wouldn't want to miss out on a fun PJ day either!
We will hold our Character Counts assemblies on Friday, November 30 at 8:30 and 9:10. That day will also be PJ day for all grades!
