End of Year Event
Check your Friday Envelope for hard copies of this year’s End of Year Event T-Shirt order forms. We’re accepting parent and student orders from now through Monday, May 8. Forms were also sent by email earlier this week. Here’s what to do next:

  1. Complete your student order form, including sizes for each child in your family. You may also order a shirt for yourself, just be sure to use the designated adult order form. Forms are attached to this email, and hard copies will come home in this week’s Friday Envelope.
  2. Place your forms and payment in an envelope marked with your oldest child’s name and homeroom. Checks should be made out to Cossitt PTC. Or even easier — drop your envelope in the secure mail slot at 101 S. Spring.
  3. Make sure your Tigers wear their shirts proudly on event day! Shirts will be distributed just before lunch dismissal on Friday, June 2.
Please note: We will not have shirts available for purchase or exchange on the day of the End of Year Event, so please be sure to order in advance and choose your size carefully.
