It’s the beginning of a new and different school year and time to pay your PTC dues ($12 per family.) All Cossitt families are automatically members of the PTC, but your dues help us achieve our mission!
We all know that this year is going to be a year like no other, and nothing the PTC does will be exactly like we have done in the past. We are committed to being both creative and flexible to find ways to still enrich our students’ school experience, whether they are hybrid or remote. Especially in a year in which fundraising opportunities are limited, your dues are an important means for supporting these efforts. After school starts, you will receive access to the (*new this year!) electronic District 102 Combined Directory.
Committee Chair / Co-Chair Openings
As we all know, this is a year of many changes! The PTC has several Committee Chair/Co-Chair positions that are open, and we would like to get these leadership positions quickly filled. Currently, our chairs are working on deciding whether or not it makes sense to move forward with each program remotely, and plans for how to do so. Who’s up for the challenge?!
Virtual Canning Party: Salsa & Margaritas
Have you been intrigued by preserving food by canning but too intimidated to try it? Did your grandma do it and you want to walk down memory lane by trying it yourself? Do you just want a fun night to learn something new? Then this canning party is for you! You will be making homemade salsa and canning it to save for winter! By signing up for the party, you will have all you need to be delivered to your front door (jars, lids, produce/ingredients, chips so you can sample your salsa, and even margaritas to sip while you are learning) You will be doing the water bath method, so the only equipment you will need are some pots and pans! We promise it will be a fun, educational, and tasty evening!
Tiger Spirit Wear
Help your student return to class with Cossitt Spirit! This year will look different, but we can all show our Tiger Pride and stay safe with Cossitt Masks! Orders can be placed by going to www.cossittspiritwear.com and select the face mask in the top menu. Don’t forget to check out the dozens of other items that you and your student can design with your favorite Cossitt Logo! Free shipping 9/4 – 9/21.
Are you cleaning out your kids’ closets and not sure where to bring the gently used clothes they’ve outgrown? Consider donating them to Cossitt!! Even though we’re not having our fall sale this year we are accepting donations and will save them for our next sale. All proceeds will then go straight to Cossitt! Items will be collected at 88 7th Avenue.
Notes to Cossitt Office
When sending to school with your student notes or forms to go to the Cossitt office, please label the envelope with what the enclosed is in reference to (ex: Book Club, Art Club, Yearbook, etc) so that it can be properly routed. This would be a great help to the office staff and much appreciated. Thank you.
Cossitt Property Watch
Please help us protect Cossitt’s property after hours. If you see inappropriate or suspicious activity after school hours, please call the La Grange Police at the non-emergency phone number of 708-579-2333. Thank you.
