PTC Upcoming Events and Activities

Cossitt PTC Committee Chair Opportunities
The PTC still has a number of Committees that need chairs or co-chairs.  We are making changes to make it easier on parents to lend a hand.  Please click on the link below and see how you can help.


If you would like to help, but need more information to evaluate what position is best for you, please email Dawn Collins at

Clean Out Your Desk
Cossitt will once again participate in the Clean Out Your Desk program. Your student can donate used and unused supplies to support both local students in need and Chicago Public School teachers. 

If you would like your child to participate, tell them the items you would like them to donate. On the final days of school, these items will be collected, sorted and delivered so that they can be distributed to those in need. Click below for more information, and to sign up to help with the effort!

School Supply Packs for 2019-2020
Time to order your student’s school supply kit for the next school year! It’s optional to order, but it can help save time and money when back-to-school shopping. Parents who purchase school supply packs save up to 40% compared to the same supplies from a national retailer. The order deadline is June 16.

Click on the link below to place an order. Enter our school Code: COS020. Supplies will be delivered to your student’s classroom before school starts in August. 

*Reminder: when ordering, please order your student’s grade level for next year.
