Book Fair – Takes place annually in early November. Committee Chairs work with a local book vendor, school staff and parent volunteers to run a three-day fair in Cossitt’s LRC. All Cossitt students are given classroom time to visit the Book Fair. The Cossitt PTC provides Book Fair Scholarships to qualified students. LEARN ABOUT THE 2021 IN PERSON AND VIRTUAL BOOK FAIR HERE.
Cossitt Clothing Sale – This is the Cossitt PTC’s largest fundraiser; held twice a year in the fall and spring. This fundraiser requires the most volunteers out of any of the Cossitt fundraisers.

Original Works – The Cossitt PTC works with Original Works, an art-based fundraising company, which offers quality, functional products for displaying children’s artwork. All Cossitt students create original artwork during art class that can be transferred onto a keepsake item such as a clay tile, mouse pad, tote bag, or t-shirt.
Rebate Programs – Cossitt families are encouraged to participate in rebate programs such as AmazonSmile and BoxTops4Education. Send neatly clipped BoxTop labels with your child to school and the PTC’s Rebate Coordinator will submit them for cash for the Cossitt PTC.
Restaurant Fundraisers – If you’re planning to go out to eat with your family during the school year, then Restaurant fundraising is an easy fundraiser for you to support. The Committee Chair dedicates a local restaurant on various days throughout the year for Cossitt families to dine in or take out.
“Run for District 102” Fun Run and 5K – This fundraiser is held in cooperation with District 102 schools in order to encourage physical fitness, build district spirit and raise funds for participating schools.  For more information, please click on the following link: Run for District 102 5K and Fun Run
Social Fundraisers – Social fundraisers are organized and hosted by Cossitt parents and signups are offered online. These fundraisers raise funds for the school while providing an avenue for the Cossitt parent community to meet and build relationships. Past fundraisers have included themed parties, progressive dinners, wine tastings, and child focus activities.  Email cossittparties @ gmail.com if you are interested in hosting the next social fundraiser!
