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!

Adventure Awaits!

The 2021 Cossitt Book Fair

Please mark your calendars for the 2021 Book Fair taking place in-person in the Cossitt LRC (Learning Resource Center) on Wednesday, November 3rd from 2:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, November 4th from 3:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. There will be some really exciting books for sale and the PTC receives 20% of all sales! Please remember that a mask is required for all who attend in person. 

For those who aren’t able to attend in person, there will also be a virtual option through Anderson’s Book Fair online from November 1 – 14, 2021.

We are looking forward to bringing some ADVENTURE through books to the kids. Thank you for your support!



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!

This would be a great help to the office staff and much appreciated. Thank you.
