It’s the beginning of a new and different school year and time to pay your PTC dues ($12 per family.) All Cossitt families are automatically members of the PTC, but your dues help us achieve our mission!
We all know that this year is going to be a year like no other, and nothing the PTC does will be exactly like we have done in the past. We are committed to being both creative and flexible to find ways to still enrich our students’ school experience, whether they are hybrid or remote. Especially in a year in which fundraising opportunities are limited, your dues are an important means for supporting these efforts. After school starts, you will receive access to the (*new this year!) electronic District 102 Combined Directory.
Tiger Spirit Wear
Help your student return to class with Cossitt Spirit! This year will look different, but we can all show our Tiger Pride and stay safe with Cossitt Masks! Orders can be placed by going to www.cossittspiritwear.com and select the face mask in the top menu. Don’t forget to check out the dozens of other items that you and your student can design with your favorite Cossitt Logo! Free shipping 9/4 – 9/21.
Birthday books are back! When it’s your child’s birthday month, please click on the link below to order your birthday book. If your student has a birthday between March 13 & June 4, he/she did not receive a book this past spring. To get the missed book, please complete the form by October 30. Going forward, these students will be also able to select another book for their 2021 birthday. Remember, if your child has a summer birthday, he/she gets their book on their half-birthday! Questions? Email Cossittbirthdaybooks@gmail.com
Gift Card Drive
The PTC is sponsoring a Grocery Gift Card Collection drive in the month of October. All donations will go to the Secret Santa program sponsored by the Rotary Club, Pillars Community Health, and the Park District of LaGrange. See the Flier for more details and drop off information. This is a great way to give back to our community members who need a little extra help during the holiday season.
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 your 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
