Cossitt PTC Events and Activities

PTC Lunch Clubs
The Lunch Clubs are a go! Thank you to all of you who signed up to volunteer! Now it is time to signup your kids! Lunch clubs will run from January 24-March 23.
We have enough volunteers to have 2-classrooms of clubs on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, choose which day of the week works for you. Your child will attend all days. 1st/2nd grades will have their own clubs in one classroom, 3rd/5th grades will be combined and 4th/6th will be combined in another classroom
We did not get enough volunteers to have separate sketch and Pokemon clubs, so these will be combined and children can bring sketch materials and/or Pokemon cards (only to be brought out during lunch club).
