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.

I will be posting pictures of the items that have been left at school by students. After the items have been posted here for two weeks, the items will be put in a bag to be donated to Goodwill. So please remind your students if they have arrived at school with a coat or hat and have not arrived back home with those items to please check the lost and found or in the school office. We are hoping with posting the pictures in the Cortland Eagle Express that more of the items that have been left at school will find their way back home.
