Welcome from your PTA:

Greeting Cougar Families!

The PTA is excited to welcome you all back to school in the next few days! We have been working hard rebuilding from a couple of rough years. We want you to know that we have a great core group of leaders that have taken over and are building on the great foundation from years past. We also want you to know that we have a new website and Facebook page, so please take note!

We were so excited to meet so many of you at Open House and we can’t wait to meet others at Back-to-School night! There are many ways for you to be involved. If you have any questions or are interested in helping please send us an email!

Please take a moment to go online and join the PTA and buy some great Cougar Spirit Wear!
