Parents! New this year, the Cossitt PTC is introducing the Tiger DanceFit! It’s a two-week fundraising program that kicks off on Tuesday, January 19, introducing families and students to the program. Families will then gather pledges for every minute your student dances (30-35 minutes) during their event day – 2/2, 2/3 OR 2/4 (During P.E. class – schedule coming soon!).
Our goal is to raise $25,000 for large flat-screen monitors for each classroom and to strengthen our school community. We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at funrun.com. Sharing IS supporting! All students will participate in the Tiger DanceFit Fundraiser, regardless of financial participation. We will also be following our school safety guidelines to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.
We appreciate your support!

Donating Opens on funrun.com – 1/19
Event Days – 2/2, 2/3 & 2/4 (During P.E. class!)
What is the Tiger DanceFit? The Tiger DanceFit is a virtual fundraiser in which the students will play a key role in raising the funds for large flat-screen monitors for each classroom. Fundraising will start on Tuesday, January 19. Families will be getting pledges for the minutes their student dances during the Tiger DanceFit. Funds raised from this event go toward purchasing large flat-screen monitors for each classroom!
What if my student(s) do not have a Cossitt P.E. teacher or are in a blended school P.E. class? The Cossitt P.E. Teacher, Ms. Kaminski, is excited to lead the students in this super fun dance video during P.E. on the event week. A schedule of when you can log in, including a link to her zoom, will be communicated on the event week. NOTE: On your student(s) event day, they will have P.E. with Ms. Kaminski regardless of what class they are in or what teacher they already have for P.E.
