A Message from Mrs. Rudloff
A Special Thank You, to all of our 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.
#Kindness Is Always Cool
I witnessed something today that really makes me appreciate the community we have at Cottonwood. With all the snow we have, it is sometimes difficult to navigate around. This morning I saw one of our dads take the time to help a little one up the sidewalk so he could make it across safely. It really touched my heart that he took the extra time to help others. So many times we are in a hurry to get to where we are going that we don't stop and take the time to look out for others. To this kind gentleman and to all of you that look out for our Cottonwood family, I would like to say, "Have a blessed day!"
COUGAR CHOIR PARENTS!
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
****The required apparel for Cougar Choir is blue jeans and a Cougar Choir polo. For those of you who are new to Cougar Choir this year, or do not have a sibling of a previous Cougar Choir member, see the link listed below to order your polo on line. They are $12.00, and orders on line must be submitted NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, MARCH 17TH! (Extended from the 10th due to snow days etc.) If your child still has their shirt from last year (5TH Graders), and it still fits, they can use the same shirt for this year. BE SURE THEY TRY ON THEIR SHIRT FROM LAST YEAR TO BE SURE IT STILL FITS!
