Cossitt PTC Events and Activities

Volunteer for the End of Year Event by Friday!
The 19th Annual End of the Year All School Event is scheduled for Monday, June 1st. It will be an afternoon of games, unity builders, music, food and fun with classmates and buddies. Celebrate with us by volunteering on the day of the event. We need many helping hands to set-up, clean-up, and run the exciting activities we are planning. For security reasons only volunteers can be on school property the day of the event.  Volunteer sign up is on-line again this year. Sign ups are due May 15th. A follow-up email will be sent to you the week of May 25th with your assignment and instructions. Contact Carrie Schlichter at 815.922.9880 or with any questions.
Clean Out Your Desk!
Clean out your desk is for students in needs! The Clean out Your Desk committee will be accepting donations of used school supplies from Cossitt students as they clean out their desks during the last week of school. The committee will distribute the supplies to local students in need and Chicago Public Schools teachers to help supply their classrooms. If you would like your child to participate, please tell him/her which items they have permission to donate. Brown bags will be available in the classrooms during desk clean out time for the student’s donations.
If you are available to volunteer to help sort the donated items onWednesday, June 3rd from 9-11am, please contact Jodi Carlberg – she would love your help! Please contact Jodi directly at
