End of Year T-Shirts

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during our time away. It is with heavy hearts to announce that our 24th Annual End of the Year celebration will not occur. Although we are not able to celebrate the end of the year in our typical fashion, we still wanted the students to have an opportunity to order a fun “End of the Year” keepsake t-shirt! This is a great way to celebrate our unity! Here is a sneak peek!  

Ordering the t-shirts will also be a little different this year. With the governor’s “Shelter in Place” order, we are going to have families order DIRECTLY with the vendor to avoid contact with others. The t-shirts will be delivered directly to your home. 


The cost is $10.50 plus shipping ($3.95 + $0.25 per shirt)

Example: 1 shirt = $10.50 + $4.20 = $14.70; 2 shirts = 2 x $10.50 plus $4.45 = $25.45. 


All transactions will take place on May 15th and shirts will arrive approximately on May 29th.  We understand this is not our typical way, but please know that a lot of thought and time went into making these t-shirts “special” during this crazy time.

Original Works

Thank you all for supporting the PTC through the Original Works art program!  With the closure of the Cossitt school building for the remainder of the year, we wanted to provide an update on the delivery and pickup of your Original Works orders.  Original Works production facility is located in New York and currently closed under that state’s stay-at-home order.  They have informed us that we will be one of the first set of orders to ship once they are able to reopen.  

In the meantime, they have left the ordering site open should you want to add anything to your order.  Once we have a date on the shipment of products, we will be reaching out to those who ordered with instructions for picking up orders.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Stephanie Kiley or Sarah Stamatakos.


2020-2021 School Supplies

Time to order your student’s school supply kit for the next school year! It’s optional to order, but it can help save time and money when back-to-school shopping. Parents who purchase school supply packs save up to 40% compared to the same supplies from a national retailer. The order deadline is June 14.

Click on the link below to place an order.  Enter our school Code: COS020 (3 letters, 3 numbers). Supplies will be delivered to your student’s classroom before school starts in August. 

*Reminder – When ordering, please order your student’s grade level for next year.

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.

Did you know that Cossitt PTC is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization? This means many employers will match employee contributions to nonprofit organizations – like the PTC! So check you personnel manuals or talk to human resources today to see if your company offers a matching gift program. Please contact the PTC Treasurer for more information at
