Cossitt Spring Clean Up

BIG thanks to Patrick Lach and Erin Helander, our Buildings & Grounds and Garden Club chairs for working tirelessly to beautify the Cossitt grounds with no Garden Club to work in the gardens, and a bare bones Covid budget this year! Your creativity and thriftiness is much appreciated. Thanks to the following who volunteered this past weekend to support their efforts: Blasco Family, Cogan Family, Lemus-Smolinski Family, Neill-Turnipseed Family, Shepherd Family, Tuminello Family, Vercellino-White Family

Shout out to La Grange Public Works for delivering mulch from the village directly to us, and to Lou Gale and Beth Augustine for making it happen for us! We (and our cars that got filled with it last year) appreciate it so much!  
Social Fundraisers

Missing your fellow Cossitt Parents? Social Party Fundraisers are back on and IN PERSON in the 2021-22 school year. 
Sign up to host a party or submit a party idea for consideration in the Sign Up Genius included, or email the Social Fundraiser Committee at cossittparties@gmail.com for more information. Our committee will review and get in touch with you to coordinate later this summer/early fall. 
More than ever, we are focused on keeping our sense of school and neighborhood community alive.
We can’t wait for 2021-22 and good times ahead! 
Carrie Becker, Molly Lane & Mia Rao Schultz
