A Message from the Principal...

At Cottonwood Elementary, we are committed to our mission of building a positive learning community to meet students’ needs and achieve ‘Success for Every One. We have had an excellent first quarter, and are looking forward to seeing all of our Bobcat parents at Parent-Teacher conferences on October 19 and 20.  Be on the lookout for your appointment confirmation. 


Parents make a huge difference in the success of our school.  We appreciate the habits of personal responsibility you are helping your child develop.   Nightly reading, math fact review, and assisting with homework are ways you can support your child’s academic growth.  Check the backpack daily for teacher communication, and have discussions with your child about what they are doing in school.  Review assignments that are sent home. 


If you are interested in volunteering, please call and visit with Mrs. Heimberger, our volunteer coordinator, to get an application packet.  We would love to have you here.  Cottonwood P.L.U.S., our parent-teacher organization, meets the first Tuesday of the month.  Even months are scheduled for 6:00 PM, odd months for 3:15 PM.    We need more parent involvement to support our fundraising efforts and family event planning. 


At Cottonwood, we work very hard to show PRIDE (being Positive, Responsible, Involved, and Determined to give the best Effort).  Feel free to send us a note or give us a phone call if you see one of our Bobcats demonstrating PRIDE around campus, in the neighborhood, in the community, or at home.  Thanks for helping us recognize and develop great character in our students.
