1 hour school delay January 11th

posted Jan 10, 2017, 8:04 PM by David Leonard

Hello again, MUSD families. We are planning to re-open our schools tomorrow (Wednesday), but WE'LL START AN HOUR LATER THAN USUAL (and bus pickups will be an hour later, too). This is so that it is daylight by the time our buses get on the roads in case there are any hazards. Students will still be released at the regular time. It is still possible that we'll need to close schools again tomorrow, but for now, this is the plan.
Stay tuned for information as it unfolds. If Hwy 175 is still closed, we plan to bring students in the long way around via Kelseyville.

Good Tuesday morning, Middletown families. Due to severe weather predictions with flood and high wind warnings for today, and out of concern for student safety, we will not have school today at any of our campuses. We are concerned about trees coming down, roads flooding, and losing power. Please be safe and cautious and we expect to see everyone at school tomorrow.

Crab Feed & School Garden Silent Auction

January 4, 2017

Dear Families, 

The time is drawing near for our annual school garden silent auction on February 4, 2017.  We are looking for a parent donation of $5 or so to put together a themed basket for your child’s classroom. We also welcome any completed baskets that families would like to contribute on their own!

Our award-winning Cobb School Garden program brings each one of our students into the school garden each week. No part of our garden program is funded by our school district. Therefore, we have to raise the funds ourselves. Luckily, we are able to raise almost all of the funds we need by holding a silent auction and live dessert auction at the Moore Family Winery Crab Boil.  

Some of the most popular items at our silent auction are the themed classroom baskets.  Parents donate items and/or funds to put together a gift basket to be auctioned at the event. This years basket themes are:

Mrs. Ferguson- gourmet foodie basket, parent lead- Angie Winchester

Mrs. Heywood- spa basket, parent lead- Nicole Cobb

Mr. Krohn- music and art, parent lead- Carolyn Compton

Mr. Weiss- family fun night, parent lead- Helena Welsh

Mrs. Vargas- garden basket, parent lead- Dana Taylor

Mr. Morita- Pot of Gold basket, parent lead- Sam Wood

This is an event that community members look forward to attending, and have enjoyed supporting for many years. We’re grateful for your continued support! 

Please return the bottom portion to your child’s teacher or parent lead with any contribution you are able to make. Thank you so much for your help!

Turkey Trot Success!

posted Nov 28, 2016, 1:46 PM by David Leonard

Cobb Elementary School had its first annual Turkey Trot on November 18th! We wish to thank our PTO, Cobb School families, and all of our sponsors. We had a great day getting a lot of exercise. 
    Many students ran more than 15 laps in an hour, and one of our top runners exceeded SIX MILES! Our top runners Hudson Kelley, Hunter Karp & Dominick Clark each took home a turkey for Thanksgiving! 
    Takoda Hardy brought in the most pledges for our school. We were able to provide all student runners with a t-shirt, and our PTO received more than $4000 in donations!  We are very grateful for all of your support!
