Fundraising is an important part of the Cossitt PTC and plays a vital role in providing programs to all Cossitt students such as Celebrating Cultural Connections, Art Appreciation and grade-level and all-school assemblies. Fundraising also provides Cossitt teachers with support to make our school a better place to work. Parent volunteers and supporters play a key part in making the fundraising end of the PTC thrive. If you’re interested in volunteering for any of the committees listed below or have any questions about our fundraisers, please contact the Vice President of Fundraising listed in the current Cossitt School Directory.
Cossitt Clothing Sale – This is the Cossitt PTC’s largest fundraiser, which is held twice a year in the fall and spring.
