Welcome Back! 


        Summer is over, school is back in session, and the Cottonwood Elementary PTA executive board has been busy making plans for the school year.  We appreciate the time many of you spend helping to make the Cottonwood Elementary PTA a meaningful part of our great school.

        Our top priority is to supplement our curriculum.  Our key priorities for are as follows: 

  1. Supplement and enhance curriculum
  2. Promote cultural awareness, the arts and character development
  3. Encourage students, staff and families to adopt healthy habits
  4. Foster and nurture a community atmosphere

We are excited at the prospect of both bringing new programs to Cottonwood Elementary and continuing many traditional favorites.  We are currently exploring proposals to offer:

  • After school, parent funded foreign language
  • Environmental awareness activities
  • Internet safety and anti-bullying resources
  • An inspiring readers program
  • Nutrition and fitness information and incentives

Please consider giving of your time and talents to help us make these opportunities a reality!  Volunteer signups are available at the school office.

        We hope that you will carefully consider joining the Cottonwood Elementary PTA and making a tax-deductible donation to support our programs.  We are also interested in corporate sponsorships for our events and activities.  If your business or employer would like more information on opportunities to partner with our school or to take advantage of your employer’s matching funds benefits, please email Sarah Bradley at or Shelly Nydegger at PTA Co-Presidents 2017-2018, or Cottonwood Elementary PTA at

        All PTA members are welcome and encouraged to attend executive board meetings on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 10am. Please come share information and ask questions!

        Please go to the Cottonwood Elementary PTA WebStore asap to complete registration fees and purchases.  Thank you!
