Third Grade "Through the Decades" Gallery

We need your help in providing materials for the children to create artifacts for the museum. The supplies that you send in will benefit multiple children, as the grade level is sharing these materials. Thank you for your support!​

Please remember to mark your calendars for Cottonwood's Open House on Thursday, March 10th. This exciting night will begin at 5:00, and it is mandatory that your child arrive at that time to participate in the Through the Decades "gallery". This will occur for about 20 minutes, and then we encourage you and your child to focus on other projects for the remainder of the evening.
