Cossitt PTC Events and Activities

Cossitt Nooks and Crannies Tour – March 11 & 12

Students have been celebrating the 135th birthday of Cossitt School all year long. Now it’s time for the parents to take part in the action! Have you ever wondered how our architecturally unique school came to be in 1922? Have you heard your children whisper about a mysterious pool in the basement? Former Cossitt teacher and Principal Mary Tavegia will be taking us back to Cossitt School (1922) when she hosts the famous “Nooks and Crannies” Tours. This is a 135th commemorative event, meaning this is the first and potentially only time the PTC will be offering these tours to parents so don’t miss your chance to be part of something truly special!

We are still looking for a few more volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering for these tours (assisting with room set up or guest check in) please contact Kirstin Dunlop

Please note that we have a strict NO ELECTRONICS policy in effect for BOTH parties. Electronic devices brought to the event will be confiscated at the door and returned at the end of the evening, so better just to leave them at home! Chaperones and Flying High Staff will have phones for emergency purposes.

Keep on Clipping and Clicking!
We will be receiving a check for $484.00 from the Box Top program this month! What an easy way to make money for our school! Our next submission is due in late March so keep on clipping. Also, be sure to check out the Box Top App.

Last call to send in Labels for Education. This program ends this school year so all labels need to be sent in asap.

We have raised $96.39 as of November 2016 through AmazonSmile. Making purchases using AmazonSmile is an easy way to help support our school. For more information visit’t forget that you can further increase our return from Amazon by buying Script cards to Amazon.

As always, thank you for your support of the Cossitt PTC.
