Cottonwood Families,

A Special Thank You, to all of our Parent Pride Committee and parents who helped make Staff Appreciation week so special! We appreciate all the kind messages and the specials treats you shared throughout the week. The staff enjoyed breakfast, luncheon, special treats, popcorn bar and gifts. Our staff truly appreciate the support that you continually give throughout our entire year. Most of all we appreciate you sharing your most precious gift, your child(ren), with us each day. What a great community!

Nebraska State Assessments

After Spring Break, the window for state testing begins. Testing will take place throughout the month of April. State testing occurs in third through fifth grade. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will take a Nebraska Student-Centered Assessment System (NSCAS) in the areas of language arts and math. Fifth grade students will also take a state assessment in science. Please make sure to check grade level and school newsletters for specific testing dates. We encourage you to make appointments later in the afternoon or outside school hours to avoid missing a testing session.


Yearbooks must be pre ordered. We will not have extras on hand to purchase. Please make sure your order is submitted and paid for before the deadline. Click on YEARBOOK ORDER Link below to place your order now.
