A letter from the PTO Executive Committee

Dear Cottage Cougar Families,

Welcome to the new school year 2022-23. We understand that these times are very trying for our community in so many respects. Teachers are under tremendous pressure and could benefit from our appreciation and confidence in them. 

To that extent, the PTO Executive Board met and has these goals for the upcoming year:

  • Promote diversity, inclusion, and kindness by working with Mr. Madden and the Cottage Diversity Committee to create educational opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, for the children and parents.
  • Continue to support school safety with PPE and supplies that are needed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, as well as to make sure the teachers have everything the need to deliver both hybrid and remote instruction to the children safely and effectively. 
  • Find creative ways to fundraise to continue school programming, stipends for teachers, and to purchase new items such as an external drop box and audio equipment for teachers. 

We cannot do this without you. We need your energy and ideas! Please reach out to us at [email protected]. Also make sure to visit our website at and like our Facebook page

With Warm Regards,

Colleen, James, Jeff and Bethanne

PTO Executive Board

  • Hello CSS PTO Web Master!

    You have done a fabulous job with the online directory and membership. So convenient and easy to follow. I love it. In spirit of providing a feedback that could help improve the online form even more I would like to give a minor suggestion. If one has two children at the school and each child has a different last name (what will be the case in my family, few years down the line) I would not know how to fill out the form. Please do not take this as criticism, I just thought I will help as I know you are simply volunteering your time to help this amazing community. Thank you for all you are doing.
