Cossitt PTC Events and Activities

PTC Committee Chair Openings for  2018-2019 School Year
The Cossitt PTC has large number of committees that need parent volunteers to help coordinate these activities. It’s a great way to contribute to your child’s Cossitt experience. 

There are volunteer opportunities at varying levels so there is something for everyone. In most cases, there are committee co-chairs to assist, notes from previous chairs passed down for guidance, and additional resources of support.

Please consider signing up for any of the many committee opportunities by clicking on the link below.

Order End of Year Event T-Shirts
The 22nd annual End of the Year All School Event is scheduled for Friday, June 1.  It will be an afternoon of games, music, food, friends and fun to celebrate a year of success together and promote a spirit of unity among our students. To celebrate our spirit of unity, each student will receive a t-shirt to wear the day of the event and to have as a keepsake.

This year we are collecting the orders through this SignUpGenius.  The cost of the shirt is $4.00 for youth sizes and $5.00 for adult sizes, plus the transaction fee (5% fee + $0.50 per transaction – which is added on to the order in order to keep the PTC costs low). Payments can be made by credit card or debit card.   If you are not able to or prefer not to pay online,  please contact Laura Tussing:

Orders are DUE BY MAY 6.
