Remember to check your email on Fridays for important information coming home from the office. The Cortland Eagle Express is how you will know what is going on at the school, upcoming events, forms to fill out for field trips, important information needed by the office, and extracurricular activities and sports information. They do not always provide us with forms to send out but ask us to put this information in our announcements.

This year meal account reminders will be sent to parents via email on Fridays if your child's meal account goes below $10.


Report cards will be sent home on Monday, October 17th - Please sit down with your students and congratulate them on good marks, applaud their efforts, and plan to work on subjects that need attention. This is a fantastic time to find out what subjects your student enjoys and where they would like your help. Sharing time is the best gift we can offer!


October 24 - 28 - Watch for information to come soon.
