Cottonwood's new site is mobile friendlyWe've upgraded our website! Here's what's new:

  • You can easily find out about events in our online calendar
  • We've added a dynamic staff directory so you can easily contact your child's teacher and, if they have classrooms websites, find links to their classroom pages
  • We've made the site mobile friendly
  • We're adding photos to give you a better look at what happens during the school day (talk to our main office if you would like to restrict directory information and photos from website, media, yearbook and other public places)

Quick Tour

In the navigation menu at the top of our site, you'll see four categories: About, Learning, Activities and Services.

On the homepage, you'll also find upcoming events and a link to the calendar, as well as quick links to conveniently find frequently requested information,

Districtwide Changes

Our new website is one of the first new school websites in the district. The district redesigned its site last fall. Other schools will follow in the coming months. Our district's goal is to make its websites consistent so that they're easier for parents to use. 

The redesigns are based on feedback from parents, staff and community members, as well as other research. In the coming months, we’ll ask you about your experiences on our new website. We'll use this information to make even more improvements in the future.
