A Message from the William E. Cottle Elementary School

Dear Cottle Families,

We made it to the end of October, and it is so refreshing to feel that cool Autumn air outside!  During classroom visits when we talk with our students, many of them are feeling extremely settled-in and more confident each day.  Although this year once again looks a little different for all of our Cubs, we are so impressed with their resiliency each day.  Our students have adapted to wearing masks, following new procedures, utilizing the technology at school and the home #GOCOTTLE.

Mr.Morash and I had our first Principal's Coffee yesterday and presented the topic of Response To Intervention or RTI. We were very pleased with the positive feedback we received  from community members. We would like to thank all that attended, and we do plan on having two more Principal's Coffee in the future so if you could not make it last night no worries. We will have two more Principal Coffees' so we hope to see you at our next one.

We like to recognize our amazing  PTA for yet again another fabulous Scholastic Book Fair. THANK YOU to  all of the volunteers that made this event possible for all of our Cottle Cubs. In celebration of Halloween, we will have our annual Ragamuffin parade on Friday October 29th. This event will take place on Cottle Field. The students will exit the main entrance and will walk around the perimeter of Cottle Field to show off their costumes. The parade should start around 9:35, we hope to see you there. In addition to the parade, the Tuckahoe PTA is also very excited to invite everyone to our second annual “Cottle Pumpkin Parade”, this year it will be an outdoor, walk-through Halloween celebration! There will be music, magic, photo ops, Halloween stories, crafts, snacks, a maze and pumpkins galore! Here is what you need to know regarding next Friday's Pumpkin Parade.
