Our school Halloween Carnival is Saturday! Stop by the school between 2:00-4:30pm for all the Halloween fun. There will be indoor Trick-Or-Treating, many carnival games in the gym, and even a spooky Haunted House. This event is free for Cottonwood students and their families. We hope to see you there in your best costumes!

Brrr....It's cold outside!

Although the snow hasn't stuck to ground yet, it is still quite chilly outside. Friendly reminder that we are still going outside for recess every day. Please be sure to send your children to school with appropriate gear to keep them warm for 30 minutes of outdoor play time.

Lost and Found

Our lost and found is very full! If your children are missing anything please ask them to swing by and see if we have it. We have everything from coats and sweaters to hats and gloves to water bottles and lunch boxes. Parents are also encouraged to stop by and take a look while they're here Monday during conferences.

Fire Safety Assemblies

All students attended a fire safety presentation today. They may be talking about a safe family meeting spot in the event of an emergency. They did an excellent job listening and learning with our local fire fighters.
