Welcome to William E. Cottle Elementary School

June 2016


Dear Cottle Parents:


It's hard to believe that only five days remain until the end of the 2015-16 school year. Enjoy this delightful poem by Sarah Angevine in 4G, titled  School's Out . Please remember that next week student dismissal on Thursday, June 23rd is at 11:30AM and student dismissal on Friday, June 24th is at 9:30AM

Last night, June 16th, members of our Cottle 4th and 5th Grade Chorus sang the National Anthem at Citifield, under the leadership of Mrs. Kim.  To make the night complete, the Mets won the game. Thank you Mrs. Bietsch for sending in the photo!

Our Kindergarteners have their graduation ceremony on Tuesday, June 21st at 9AM and Cottle Fifth Graders have their Stepping-Up ceremony on Wednesday, June 22nd at 9AM. Both ceremonies take place in the Cottle Auditorium.

To help avoid summer setback on learning, please remember to have your children read everyday. Consider signing up for the New York State Senate's Summer Reading program (see below). In addition, First in Math accounts (students in grades 2 through 5) remain active through August 15th.  Just 10 minutes of math a day is enough to avoid the "summer slide".

Have a healthy and enjoyable summer.  The first day of the 2016-17 school year for students is Tuesday, September 6, 2016.


Mr. George Albano, Principal
Mr. Peter Kilgallen, Assistant Principal
