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!
PJ Day and Minimum Day on Friday!
Tomorrow will be an exciting day at Cottage Hill... We have PJ Day for all grades, and it is also a Minimum Day. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon. We do have after school Rec on Minimum Days.
Next week, school is in session on Monday and Tuesday. Thanksgiving Break is Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Our Annual Mistletoe Mall will be open for shopping Dec 6th - 11th!
If you've never experienced it, it is a wonderful shop set up each year by Cottage Hill PTC for our students to buy holiday gifts for their loved-ones.
Each class will have an assigned time to shop during school hours. The week before the event you'll get all the information you need to send in your students shopping money.
Look for the informational flyer coming home with your students this week. And help them start thinking about who they might want to shop for.
