Principal's Message

 

February 14, 2020

 

Dear Cottle families,

ur students and staff have been very busy, and you should all be very proud of our Cottle Cubs for all they have accomplished this week!  

During this Random Acts of Kindness week, they made cheerful cards to be delivered to senior citizens, American troops and veterans, and hospitalized children, expressing their love, support, and gratitude.  They also dedicated one entire day to saying ‘thank you’ to people in their lives, and they spread kindness with their Valentines.  

The G.O. sponsored Spirit Week was also a lively success.  Our students showed their school spirit and shared lots of fun by wearing wacky paraphernalia all week – everything from pajamas to Mickey Mouse ears.  They also had fun and learned some important information as they ‘travelled through the heart’ as part of the Kids Heart Challenge!  

Next week, of course, our school will be closed for Winter Recess, however, when we return from break, the Building Bridges program will take place the week of February 24 – 28, 2020.  Building Bridges is an amazing week-long program sponsored by our SEPTA. Students will experience first hand what it feels like to live with a disability through interactive classroom activities and guest speakers.

A note from Central Office - as we finish out the winter weather season, it remains critical that we have up to date contact information on file for parents/guardians. Please remember that, if your contact information changes and you do not update it, you may not receive district emails and notices. To update your contact information, please contact the WEC main office.  Also, to ensure full access to district communications, please remember that it is incumbent upon the parent/guardian user to manage and operate his/her computer or handheld device, Web, email access, and basic Web functionality, including maintaining current versions of standard web software and spam filters.

Finally, Mr. K. and I want to wish you all a happy Presidents’ Day holiday and a relaxing winter break.  I have read that President Abraham Lincoln once said, “Commitment is what transforms a promise into a reality.”  Rest assured Mr. K. and I and all the dedicated teachers and staff at WEC are firmly committed to making William E. Cottle School the best elementary school we can muster, and we thank you for your continued support for our efforts.  

See you on Monday, February, 24!  

Sincerely,

John Morash         Peter Kilgallen

Principal                 Assistant Principal
