On this Thanksgiving, we would like to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday. May it be filled with smiles, good food, love and laughter, and memories you will cherish for years to come.
And because Thanksgiving is about gratitude, we’d like to share a few of the things we are grateful for today – and every day.
We are thankful for our students. They bring a wonderful vibrancy to our campus. Their youthful exuberance is contagious, and they keep the rest of us young by our contact with them. We are thankful for their intellectual curiosity, their school spirit, and the way they volunteer to help others. They will be the leaders of the world in their time, and they will be ready.
We are grateful for our faculty. They are at the center of the wonderful intellectual journey. It is through them that our students learn and are inspired. We are proud that our faculty not only teach our students, but want to get to know them as people.
A message from our Cottle Art department, Ms. Derbin has extended the Cottle Mural art project until December 10th. Please contact Ms. Derbin if you have any questions.
Our wonderful PTA will be having their annual Holiday Boutique here at Cottle School. The boutique will be next week 11/29, 11/30, 12/1, 12/2, 12/3. Your child/children will go to the boutique during their library class.
We also like to remind you of the following message that was sent from Central office about vaccination locations and availability.
The Westchester County Department of Health will host an on-site vaccination clinic for students ages 5-11 to receive their first dose at the William E. Cottle Elementary School. The second dose will be administered on December 28 at the William E. Cottle Elementary School. If you would still like to sign up for the vaccine at the William E. Cottle School, please click here to express your interest in our survey. More information for parents who express interest is forthcoming.
Meanwhile, families can use the vaccine finder tool for individuals ages five and up by entering their zip code at the website linked here. Additionally, many doctor offices and pharmacies in the area have the vaccine.
As we have always said, this is an individual family decision. The vaccine is not currently required to attend school. Please call your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns. At Tuckahoe, we are in this together!
