Dear Cottle Families,
April has arrived and we hope you had an enjoyable Spring Break. Spring weather has also arrived however, it still can be pretty chilly in the morning so please remember to have the students dress appropriately. Specials (Art, Music, Library, P.E) are still outside so we want our Cubs to be comfortable while they participate in their specials. Students, teachers and staff have returned to school refreshed, and we are looking forward to many busy days ahead. Your child/children are working hard every day to show they are true Cottle Cub Champions. We are proud of every student for the growth they are making in all subject areas.
In an effort to preserve as much instructional time as we can as we come down the home stretch of this school year please note that, like last school year, spring Parent/Teacher Conferences will be canceled. Please know that any time you would like to meet (virtually or by phone conference) with your child's teacher please contact them directly.
As we begin to prepare for what we hope will be a more normal 2021-2022 school year at WEC, we want you all to know that we strive to create balanced classes at all grade levels. While we will not be taking requests for specific placements, please know that the placement process is a very thorough and collaborative effort by classroom teachers, administration, services providers and school psychologists. It is a matter of pairing learning styles with teaching styles and academically and socially balanced classes within each grade level. If there is an extenuating circumstance regarding the placement of your child for next school year, please email administration by May 1.
As always, we ask that you pay special attention to information that is coming home in your child’s folder and on The Cottle website. This time of year is filled with fun activities and important dates, and we wouldn’t want anyone to miss anything!
Below, you will find a list of upcoming dates and events. Please call the office if you have any questions, and thank you for your continued support of your child’s education!
