PTC Executive Board Positions Open for 2021-2022

The PTC is looking for some energetic parents to help us fill our Executive Board! This is a great opportunity to not only give back to the school but also meet great parents and staff. And we know next year is going to be a lot better than this year, so it is a great time to get involved! The following Executive Board Positions are open for next school year: 
1st Vice President:  This person serves one year as 1st VP and then becomes the President the following year. The main role of the 1st VP is the Tiger Times. 
Admin VP:  This position is a two-year term and duties include managing volunteer sign-ups and dues, recruiting committee chairs, and overseeing room parents. 
Secretary:  The secretary is also a two-year position and he/she prepares minutes from Board meetings, as well as oversees gifts/luncheons for recognition of teachers and staff. 
Do any of these sound interesting to you? Please email Angie Larson (angielarson2008 @ for more information. It is a great way to get involved and give back to the school! Thank you for considering! 

Education Garden Pavers available to order NOW!

The Cossitt Education Garden creates a foundation for a dynamic and interactive outdoor learning experience for students at Cossitt Elementary. Important life skills such as teamwork, planning, responsibility, respect for the earth, and healthy eating habits are emphasized as children of all ages visit and contribute to the annual development of the Garden.

Each year, in order to maintain the Garden and help fund the Garden Club activities, we offer our Cossitt community the opportunity to contribute to our Garden hardscape through the purchase of customized paver stones.

Between now and April 30th, you can complete the Legacy Paver Order Form to order your personalized paver today! Pavers can be customized (see detailed instructions on the order form) to show your Cossitt spirit, acknowledge a teacher or faculty member, celebrate your child’s success or favorite activity (select icons are available), or just share a positive thought or saying. Please turn in your order submissions to the Cossitt Office no later than 3:15 pm on Friday, April 30th. Legacy Pavers will be installed during the summer.
