COVID-19 2020/2021 Fundraising Update

We know this pandemic is putting a strain on many families and organizations within our community. Fortunately, Cottage Lake Elementary’s fundraising success in year’s past has put us in a wonderful position to still have what is needed to support our students and staff this year. 


For the for 2020/21 school year, the PTA has decided to limit our fundraising activities to Domino’s Dough Raising Nights, spirit-wear sales, Amazon Smile, family donations, company donation matching, and community sponsorship opportunities.  These will take the place of our two large fundraisers—The Fall Fun Run and the Spring Auction.  


We feel these efforts will give the PTA the extra funds needed to prepare for next year without asking too much of all of you or our local businesses.  We are hopeful and look forward to bringing back the Fun Run and Auction next year!!!

Domino's nights - Raising the Dough!

Fun event that supports the school and let's you take a "night off" for cooking dinner! 


We announce 3-4 dates throughout the school year and on those dates - you can order from Domino's and record your child's teacher name.  We normally have a friendly "contest" to  which classroom gets the most orders.  


The PTA earns a portion of sales from that evening event.
