Our Mission

To enrich and maximize the education of every child at Cottonwood Creek School.

We do this by building relationships between the faculty, students, and parents through fundraising and funding educational enhancements.

The Cottonwood Creek K-8 School PFC is a collaboration between parents who have children enrolled at CCS, teachers and staff here at CCS and the school administration. We work together to provide enrichment and opportunities to support our children’s educational experience. We do this by supporting programs that the district does not fund or providing teaching materials and learning opportunities to supplement our children’s education. We deeply appreciate your dedication to your children and your support of our school. Your commitment helps to give our students the best possible education. We look forward to seeing you at our future events!

 

We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID 82-5473721)                                               Click here to read the PFC By-Laws

2022-2023 PFC President Message

Hello Cottonwood Creek Families,

On behalf of the CCS Parent Faculty Club (PFC) Board, welcome to the 2022-23 school year!

If you are new to Cottonwood, the PFC is a group of active parents, faculty, and staff that help to make Cottonwood Creek more than just a school - we make it a thriving community for our kids to learn and grow. 

As a PFC, our goal is to support and strengthen Cottonwood Creek by ensuring that each student has the opportunity to reach their full potential! We have great enrichment programs, tools and events for students of all grade levels that are only possible as the result of the generous donations from the CCS families and support from our parent volunteers. To find out more about all the programs, tools, and events we are able have for all our students K-8 please visit: https://www.cottonwoodpfc.org/enrichment-programs

We are very proud of this upcoming year’s PFC extracurricular club offerings. We have Youth Coding Workshop providing coaching for students for 4th grade and up, CCS Book Club for 1-5 grade, Speech and Debate team (5-8 grade), Math Club (5-8 grade), and Girls Who Code (6-8 grade) along with expanding on our Science Fair Mentorship program. We are excited to offer this year for the first time the Art Club (4-8 grade). You can find more details and registrations process here: https://www.cottonwoodpfc.org/afterschool-clubs

We are also looking forward to bring our families together through fun and exciting community events such as Ice Cream Social, Trunk or Treat, Astronomy Night, Family Dance Night and more.

None of the above could have happened without the support of our amazing Cottonwood Creek families. As a CCS parent, you are automatically a member of the PFC, and in the coming weeks, we invite you to reach out to us to find out all the ways you can further support our students. We rely heavily on parents’ donations and on the volunteers to fund our amazing programs and lead our wonderful community events and activities.

Here are some simple ways you can get started to be actively engaged in our school community to help us achieve our mission:

  • Make a Financial Contribution! We make sure every dollar donated works for our students and expands and enriches their educational experience.

Every dollar counts. This year we are again asking parents to support our ‘Dollar a Day’ program. This means we are asking for $1 per school day (about $180 dollars per student attending CCS). This contribution enables our students to not only keep up with our neighboring schools in Dublin, but to compete with other districts like Pleasanton and San Ramon. The more you give, the more we can do to provide our children with a world class educational experience. 

Please donate here: https://www.cottonwoodpfc.org/donate

  • Get involved and Volunteer! Whether you can share your professional expertise or a hidden talent; whether you can help every day, an hour a week, or for a specific event, you are needed and appreciated (no experience is necessary) … Please visit https://www.cottonwoodpfc.org/opportunites for more volunteering information and guidelines.

  • Join the conversation! Help shape your child’s educational experience by participating in monthly PFC meetings where we look ahead at defining new goals and putting resources to our existing ones! Our meetings are generally held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.  Please look out for announcements for our meetings send to your email.

You can find our agendas and meetings information here: https://www.cottonwoodpfc.org/documents-and-forms
