While at the Cossitt Parent Social, sign up for the social fundraisers being sponsored by Cossitt families through out the year. The social fundraisers provide opportunities to meet new people and have fun in smaller settings. Thanks to the generosity of the sponsoring families, all proceeds from the social fundraisers go straight to the PTC. Sign-ups for the social fundraisers start at 8:15. Many events will have a limited number of spots and some will sell-out. All social fundraisers with open spots after the parent social will be advertised in the following Friday folder.

Cleaning Clothing Closets for Cossitt
As the temperature starts to change and you’re looking for a place to donate your kids’ summer and fall clothing or old winter clothes that are now too small, consider donating them to the Cossitt Clothing sale!

New this year, you can donate gently-used clothing to the Cossitt Clothing Sale at numerous times throughout the year (not just at sale time). For your convenience, we will set up ongoing drop-off dates and locations so that can clean out old clothes  whenever needed.  We will do the work of pricing and selling the clothing and you can rest assured that your cleaner closets are supporting Cossitt.

Trivia Night Co-Chairs/Committee Needed
Attention all Cossitt Parents! One of the most highly anticipated social events of the year is in need of two energetic co-chairs and/or committee. Historically this fun event has been held in April, but the date can be flexible. It’s a great evening of fun and friends, and raises important funds for the PTC.

Let’s get this party started (so that we don’t have to cancel it altogether)  If you are interested, please contact Nicole Stork at
