Griffitts 2019

As we come to the close of another school year, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for another great year at Cottonwood.  It is a privilege to lead this school with the support of great students, an outstanding staff and encouraging parents.  It has been very fulfilling to see the gains made by our students and staff during this 2020-21 school year.  We will all remember the 2020-21 school year as one that required patience and perseverance.  This difficult year has brought to light that Cottonwood Elementary is a family.  This family is made up of students, parents, staff and the community. The Cottonwood family will continue to grow closer throughout the coming years. We also want to say goodbye to members of our family, the 5th grade students who will be moving on to Lakewood Middle School.  It has been a pleasure to get to know the 5th grade and we wish them well in their future endeavors.  We also say goodbye to several staff members who will be pursuing opportunities at different schools.

Therefore, as we say good-bye to the 2020-21 school year, we anxiously anticipate the next school year and the challenges and opportunities that await our Cottonwood family. Thank you for making this school year at Cottonwood Elementary, so rewarding and I cannot wait for the 2021-22 school year to begin.  Have a Great Summer!
