Principal's Weekly Message

October 20, 2017

Dear Cottle Families:

There is always a benefit to reflection when writing to the Cottle School community. We are witnessing an unbelievable outpouring of support for our Halloween festivities tonight. This week’s successful Book Fair and full slate of exciting PTA after school activities really highlights our fantastic learning environment. We are humbled by what we experience and the good fortune of simply being a part of all that is good about WEC and Tuckahoe Schools. You know a wonderful school program the moment you walk into the building because you can feel it. We hope you can sense the commitment, love, and care when you walk through the doors. From our Invention Convention to WEC’s  Hurricane Relief Drive , our school program is in full gear. You are a part of this and deserve to be recognized for your dedication to our school.

We have planned our yearly evacuation drill for today, Friday, October 20th at 2PM. Children will evacuate to Siwanoy Country Club and return to Cottle for regular dismissal.

WEC’s Open School Morning is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th. Our Middle School is also open to parents during the morning of October 24th from 7:30AM - 11AM. We felt that this would be more convenient for parents who wish to see both schools without needing to take extra time away from their normal schedule.

Open School Morning is a great opportunity for you to observe your child’s general education class and special area classes including music, physical education, and library. To protect students’ privacy, parents are not permitted to observe special education programs such as OT, PT, speech, resource room, etc. If your child is scheduled for one of these related services during your visit, please remain in the general education classroom.

Open School Morning will run in two sessions. The first session will run from 9:00AM to 10:00AM for Kindergarten to Second grades. Our second session will run from 10:00AM to 11:00AM for Third to Fifth grades. Parent passes will be sent home today. Please bring your parent pass with you on Tuesday, October 24th in order to enter the building.

We expect many visitors, so teachers and support staff will not be able to engage in 1:1 discussions regarding individual children. You will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress at parent/teacher conferences on November 8th and November 15th.
