School Wide Enrichment (SEM)

semBecause of generous donations from our families, historically the PTO has been able to fund a wide variety of school0wide enrichment programs. Typically, an outside vendor will come into our school and provide specialized grade-level presentations.  Many of our students have described these programs as some of their favorite Cottonwood experiences. Due to curriculum changes, some of these programs will/may change this year, indicated by an *.
