A Message from the William E. Cottle Elementary School- The Cottle Weekly
May 25, 2023
Memorial Day weekend has arrived, and we only have 17 school days remaining in the 2022-2023 school year! The last month of school continues to be filled with special events, as you can see from the list below!
We began the special events this week with the Cottle Dance Recital, featuring performances by our talented Kindergarten through 5th Grade and TMS/THS. Then, further demonstrating our students’ versatility, the 4th and 5th Grade students’ performance gave us a taste of the exciting world of the circus. All the students did an amazing job!
In addition, this week we held the annual Memorial Day celebration ceremony at the TMS/THS turf. It was a wonderful event that celebrated so many that have sacrificed for our freedom. A special congratulations to the Memorial Day Essay Contest winner, 4th Grader, Myles Berenson. Myles did a phenomenal job reading his well-written and touching essay during the ceremony!
Next week our Cottle Cubs will continue to dazzle us as we begin the first of our annual Spring Concerts with a strings performance. This is the first in a series of Spring Concerts that our fabulous music teachers Ms. Kim, Ms. Shentov and Mr. Grasso have planned. You won’t want to miss them, so be sure to add them all to your calendar!
Our students will also show us their creative talents next week at our annual WEC Art Show, featuring artwork by all of our Cottle Cubs! Special applause to our marvelous art teacher Ms. Depouli, who never fails to inspire our little artists.
A message from the PTA: The PTA is seeking volunteers for Field Day on Friday, June 2, 2023. Please click HERE to sign up.
Clearly there’s lots to see and enjoy at WEC in the coming weeks. We hope you will be able to come and join us!
Finally, Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial beginning of the summer season, and many of us will be enjoying family gatherings and local parades. As we celebrate, we also remember that Memorial Day was established to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. We recognize and give thanks to those men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and way of life.
We wish you a relaxing holiday weekend!
