PTC Upcoming Events and Activities

Cossitt LRC is Seeking Volunteers for 2021-22 School Year!

The LRC is excited to be able to welcome parents that might like to volunteer some time to help us out in the LRC. This is an easy, fun way to be involved with the school. Spots are still available! All volunteers have to follow the building mitigation procedures. 
Sign up HERE.

Cossitt Book Club
Cossitt Book Club is open to all 2nd, 3rd and 6th graders. We encourage all levels of readers to join their specific grade. We are looking for enthusiastic readers who are excited to discuss characters and plot as we move through the book as a group! The cost is $15/child and this is expected to start the week of January 10th.
Book titles are:
2nd Grade: My Life in Pictures by Deborah Zemke
3rd Grade: Frankie Sparks and the Class Pet by Megan Frazer Blakemore
6th Grade: Free Lunch by Rex Ogle
The program is led by parent volunteers and will meet once a week for 6 weeks during lunch/recess. If your child is interested in participating, please sign-up using the link below, and please note whether or not you are open and available to volunteer (number of volunteers needed may be dependent on number of kids participating in the Book Club). Being a volunteer in your child’s group is a fun way to interact with your child and to get to know other children in their grade level.
Sign up HERE
Please do not sign up your child unless he or she wants to be in this program. This is not a club for children who do not enjoy reading—it takes away from those who really want to be in a reading group and who enjoy talking about books and ideas. 
Deadline to submit info and payment is Friday, December 10th. Please note that SignUpGenius will also attach a processing fee. If cost is a barrier for joining, scholarships are available. Please contact social worker Alison Vogt for more information.

Art Appreciation

Parents, here’s a great opportunity to visit your child’s classroom and provide art enrichment too! Art Appreciation is a PTC-sponsored program that recruits parents like you to give a 30-45 minute presentation on an artist, technique, or art movement. This program supplements your child’s art education and all materials and instructions are provided for you! 
Learn more and sign up HERE!


It’s a new school year and time to pay your PTC dues ($12/family). Your dues are an important means to continue to enrich our students’ school experience.  The PTC has been busy! We have already distributed school supplies, supported classroom needs, and cheered on our students for their first day. Your dues help support these efforts, and much more!

Committee Chair & Committee Volunteer Sign-Up for 2021/22

Let’s fill the remaining committee Chair/Co-Chair positions! Previous chairs will transition the project to you and the PTC Board VP overseeing your project will support you. It’s a great way to meet other Cossitt parents and get more involved with PTC. Thanks for considering!

Notes to Cossitt Office
When sending to school with your student notes or forms to go to the Cossitt office, please label the envelope with what the enclosed is in reference to (ex: Book Club, Art Club, Yearbook, etc) so that it can be properly routed. This would be a great help to the office staff and much appreciated. Thank you.

Cossitt Property Watch
Please help us protect Cossitt’s property after hours. If you see inappropriate or suspicious activity after school hours, please call the La Grange Police at the non-emergency phone number of 708-579-2333. Thank you.
