Dream Big Survey Results!
We reviewed the Dream Big Survey Results and voted on three areas to explore further. Our next step is to find parents that are interested in helping us look into these big ideas to improve our school! If you have expertise in any of these areas or are just interested in helping explore these ideas further, please email us at DreamBigCossitt@gmail.com.The three categories we will be exploring are:
- Outdoor Blacktop Space: Explore options as big as turning it into a park with grass or field turf.
- Technology, A/V Equipment: Explore a new sound system for gym and LRC. Also, look into projectors or smart TVs for classrooms.
- Interior Common Space Refresh: Explore ideas to freshen up the hallways, bathrooms and common areas with new paint, fun murals, etc.

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.
