A Message from Mrs. Rudloff

Cottonwood Families,

Season of Giving

I hope you had an opportunity to join us for the Season of Giving assembly today. It is always such a positive way to begin our Winter Break and celebrate all the great things our students and staff do to help others in the community.

Winter Break

Just a reminder that our Winter Break begins at dismissal on Friday, December 21st. School will resume on Monday, January 7, 2018.

Happy Holidays!

As we approach 2019, the staff at Cottonwood would like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season. We hope your family has a restful and relaxing break. Best wishes to a wonderful New Year! See you on January 7th!

Happy Holidays from Cottonwood PTA!

We are excited for a nice holiday break and then to begin a great second semester for Cottonwood PTA!

School Movie night is Friday, January 18th – 6:30pm. In early January, the students will decide on this year’s movie. Doors open at 6:00pm. Bring your pillows and blankets. Pizza and concessions will be available. We are looking for a chairperson for movie night. If you are interested, contact Matt Halligan at (402) 980-6664 or matt.t.halligan@gmail.com

The PTA will sponsor a staff meal on Thursday, February 7th for staff working during Parent Teacher conferences. Look for sign-up details in late January.

Please consider becoming a PTA officer for the 2019/2020 school year. We are very low on officers who will be continuing next year. Continuity of the PTA is essential. Every PTA board structures things differently, so your creativity and love for the school will have a wonderful outlet. If you are interested in the PTA board for next year, contact Matt Halligan at (402) 980-6664 or matt.t.halligan@gmail.com

Have a great weekend!

Erin Bearinger

Cottonwood PTA Secretary
