The Foghorn - Issue #2 | 9.4.22
We hope you all had a great first week of school! It was so fun seeing everyone on the first day. We are very excited to welcome our littlest Sailors to the school on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you are a parent of a kindergartener, we encourage you to attend the "Tears & Cheers" breakfast on your child's first day. It will be a great opportunity to commiserate and celebrate with fellow kindergarten parents. Plus, there will be coffee and donuts! We also have the Ice Cream Social taking place this Thursday from 5-7 on the playground. Bring your family and friends and enjoy some free ice cream!
The PTA has a lot in store for the month of September, so keep reading for more information.
We are excited to work with the students, staff, families, and friends of Cottage Lake Elementary. We encourage you to check out the PTA and send any and all ideas our way.
