One of the goals of Kansas Can/Redesign is to promote Family/School Engagement. As we talked with Site Council and our teacher teams, we decided to promote three areas this year.

Camp Cottonwood – This camp is for our families to learn more about Cottonwood, technology, Pathways, Flipgrid, safety, Redesign, Love and logic or just network. Plan to join us on November 14th from 5:30 pm – 7:15 pm. More details about child care will be provided at a later date. If you have something you would like to know more about, send Mrs. Rooks an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to share what we know about Cottonwood and make this an evening that will help you and your family.
As part of our redesign journey, we asked students, parents and teachers what they felt was most important at Cottonwood. The most common answer was building relationships and providing opportunities for students. We took that information to heart and developed an idea that would be inclusive, fun, educational and meaningful. From those discussions, Explorations was created.
Explorations will begin October 31st for students in grades 1 through 5 and will run from 8:55 am – 9:30 am. During this time, students will attend a small group of their choice to explore something different.
