Cossitt Friday Folder August 30, 2019
Welcome to your emailed Friday Folder. These flyers are also available on the  Cossitt PTC website .
PTC Dues
If you haven't gotten a chance to pay your PTC dues, please take a moment to do so today ($12/family per year).  The PTC appreciates your support, and we have some exciting plans for this year!  Thank-you! 

Calling All Parent Volunteers!
It's almost the beginning of the new school year! This means we are in need of parent volunteers. We are a parent community, committed to supporting the school with resources, time and effort. It would not be possible to do all that we do without your support.

Please click below to find several volunteer opportunities, along with a brief description. The respective committee chairs or PTC contacts will reach out to you with more information as the program date nears. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Vanessa Prinz.

Social Fundraiser Slate Coming Soon!  
Get excited! The 2019/2020 Social Fundraiser slate will be announced on Friday, September 13 with sign-ups beginning on Friday, September 20 - we have many new parties added this year! Social Fundraisers are a great way to meet other Cossitt parents while raising funds for the school. All are welcome to host or attend! It's still not too late if you are interested in hosting an event, have an idea for an event, or need details before deciding. Please contact Amy Carlstead & Carrie Becker at
cossittparties@gmail.com.
 
NEW this year, the Social Fundraising team is open to new formats and pricing per ticket. Want to host a porch party or host at a local business? We could price under the typical $50/ticket. Or have an idea for a fancy, gourmet dinner party? We could price up to make it worthwhile for your investment. We are here to make it as easy, flexible, and fun as possible.
