Office of Mission


January 21, 2019


During the month of January, our school community is focusing on the following positive culture actions: 



There are many opportunities every day for one to be prepared for classes or after-school activities, for work responsibilities, or for caring for one's family. How can you pay closer attention to your preparedness for the week ahead?


We are a blessed school community with so many gifted members: students, teachers, staff, coaches, parents, benefactors ... we take great pride in the "caring community culture" that exists within our school! Consider how you might show pride in who you are, or who Cotter Schools is,

in the week ahead.


Finally, today, as we remember and celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., let us join with voices across the country in praying for an end to the violence perpetrated by harsh words, deadly weapons, or cold indifference. May our homes, our school, our nation, and countries around the world become havens of peace, let us pray to the Lord.  Lord, hear our prayer.


St. Joseph, patron of Cotter Schools - pray for us.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts - forever.


Blessings on your day!
