Activities will include planting vegetables, flowers, and taking care of our Cossitt Garden. Cost is $20 and our first meeting is April 12 from 3:15-4:00. Please see the signup-genius for details.

Last Chance to Order Yearbooks!
Online store closes April 1, 2019

  •  Yearbooks are $14 each and will be distributed to students during the last week of school. 
  • All yearbook orders are done online through our vendor with payment via Paypal or credit card.  
  • This is the only time of year for Cossitt yearbook orders (meaning, you did not order Cossitt yearbooks in the fall when you may have ordered them for Park or LT).    
  • If you do not order a yearbook for your child, he/she will not receive one when they are delivered to student classrooms…we mention this as it can be disappointing to students expecting a book. Some surplus books will be available on the last day of school while supplies last.

To Order: 

  1. Visit our vendor store at select yearbook and click “Add to Cart”
  2. Key in recipient last name (select your child from the drop-down list)
  3. Include your email
  4. To add a yearbook for another child, click “Continue Shopping” at top and repeat the process for each additional child
  5. Click Checkout
  6. Keep your order confirmation, which will be emailed to you.  This is your proof of purchase.

If you have questions, please contact Vanessa Blasco at

Tickets are now available for purchase!

Due to crazy and unpredictable Chicago weather, the PSCC’s Cyber Safety presentation has been rescheduled for April 2. So there is still time to register! Liz Repking of Cyber Safety Consulting, a technical consultant and Mom of 3, will be presenting to the parents of District 102 how to positively use technology in your home and keep your kids safe online.

Liz will cover the dangers that our kids face in their online lives to include:

  • how to create an exit or escape plan if your child encounters problems online
  • how to create a positive digital footprint, how to be an upstander if you witness cyberbullying
  • how to be safe with online gaming, how to watch out for predators who try to connect with kids online.

She will also cover technical knowledge on the apps and devices that children are using every day and also monitoring options for devices.

Notes to Cossitt Office
When sending to school with your student notes or forms to go to the Cossitt office, please label the envelope with what the enclosed is in reference to (ex: Book Club, Art Club, Yearbook, etc) so that it can be properly routed. This would be a great help to the office staff and much appreciated. Thank you.
