Report Cards

Report cards will be sent out on Friday, January 14th - Please sit down with your student and congratulate them on good marks, applaud their efforts, and make a 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! You can also access your child's report card on your Harmony Family Access account.

Textbook Fees

Just a reminder that we'd like to see all textbook rental fees paid prior to the end of the school year. If you are not sure if you have paid your book rental you can always check this information on your Harmony Family Access Account. Checks should be made out to Cortland Elementary and sent to school in an envelope marked for book rental. You can also mail in a check or money order to the school: Cortland Elementary School, 6687 N CR 400 E, Seymour, IN 47274. Any questions please contact the school office.

Changing Weather

Please keep in mind that during the winter we send children outside for recess when the temperature and wind chill is above 20 degrees Fahrenheit. It is highly recommended that children wear hats as well as coats to school during the cold months. This information can be found in your student handbook page 21.
