ATTENTION 3rd, 4th and 5th GRADE GIRLS!

Cossitt Elementary is hosting another season of girls’ running club! The club will meet once a week to work towards running a 5k at the end of the season. While meeting, we will focus on both running and social skills. The girls will also work on building confidence, self-esteem and working together as a team.

This year, Girls’ Running Club will be held on Thursdays after school and coached by Mrs. Daly, Mrs. Duncan, Mrs. Galloway, Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Melberg, Mrs. Morris, Mrs. Stamer & Mrs. Wood.

We’d love for you to join us!

What is the STEM Expo?  

STEM EXPO 2020 will showcase the talents of K – 6 students in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and creative Making. This event is designed to show off those talents in the scientific areas. We look forward to many different kinds of projects and students to share what they have learned. STEM EXPO is an event, like an old-fashioned science fair, but non-competitive, you are all winners!
