We are currently revamping the Cotton Creek PTO Website. We hope to have it updated & running by the end of August. Thank you for your patience.
The Cotton Creek PTO is hosting the district wide PTO Bingo Night this year! It will be held in the East cafeteria at the Wauconda High School, Friday February 5th. Doors open at 6pm, and Bingo will run 6:30-8:30pm. Cost is $3 per adult, and $2 per child, which includes raffle ticket for door prizes, bingo cards as well as candy marker pieces. We will have food and drinks available for purchase throughout the event. There will be 20 different themed gift baskets to be raffled off as our door prizes, and every bingo winner will be able to choose a prize off of the small prize table. We expect to have an excellent turnout of District 118 families at this always fun event. We hope to see many Cotton Creek families there!
Volunteers are needed for such a big event. We need help in all areas: set up, clean up, concessions, and help during the actual event. Please contact Beth Acosta at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help out.
We have Ice Cream sales, typically on the 3rd Thursday of every month, during lunch hours. Ice cream is $.50, and freeze pops are available for anyone who cannot have ice cream. Please look over the ingredient list below to ensure the ice cream we purchase is safe for your child with food allergies.
Please join us for our January PTO meeting Jan 25th, 4pm in the school library. We have much to discuss. We will continue planning for our upcoming district PTO Bingo Night event, and the movie night scheduled at the end of the month. We will also get an update financial report, and will have some bills to approve the payments for.
We encourage new faces to attend. The PTO cannot succeed without the help of involved parents. Kids are always welcome at the PTO meetings.
Our Believe Kids fundraiser is just $800 shy in orders to reach the next bracket in profits. If we are able to reach this goal, our profit margin will go from 25% to 45%! Obviously, this will bring much more money into our PTO coffers, to benefit our school.
Anyone can go online to place an order and help our school out, so please share the link with family and friends and help us make this goal by Friday, Nov 20th! Orders will arrive before our Winter Holiday Break begins. Visit www.shopbelieve.com, and be sure to select Cotton Creek before shopping!
It’s the time of year when the Holiday Shop Committee kicks into full gear to get our little store ready for our of our shoppers! The Holiday Shop will be open the week of Dec 7-11. Each class will have a time slot that week where the students will come in to select gifts for the members of their immediate family and grandparents. Many volunteers are needed each to assist the students in selecting their purchases, and wrapping the gifts for them to take home. If you are able to spend some time at the Holiday Shop this season, please click here to add yourself to our volunteer sign up page.
We will also be taking donations of gift bags at anytime leading up to the week of the Holiday Shop. Every gift is sent home in a gift bag so their purchases can remain a secret until the Holiday!
