Wrapping Up Another Great Year

It is hard to believe we have come to the close of another school year. This year has been an

an exciting year for the students and staff of Cortland Elementary School. Cortland Elementary School would like to take the time to thank our students for helping make this a great year. We would also like to thank all of you for making Cortland Elementary School a great place for students. Whether it was helping with homework or school projects, etc. we could not ask for better parental support. We take great pride in our school and know through your support, participation, and actions that you share that same pride. Thanks again for helping us have another successful year at Cortland Elementary School. We look forward to continuing this partnership with you in helping to provide the best possible educational experience for students. We look forward to seeing the smiling faces of our students as they come back to school on Wednesday, August 10, 2022. May everyone be blessed with a safe, fun, and relaxing summer vacation.
