Every month, the PTA likes to provide lunch to the Cougar Valley teachers and staff as a way to say thanks for everything they do for our children on a daily basis. In order for these events to be a success, we need the help of our parents and PTA members. Please give whatever you can, be it your culinary skills, your time, or a monetary donation.
In October, we are hosting an Italian Cuisine Luncheon on Wednesday Oct. 18th

During the book fair, the Cougar Valley PTA will be hosting a gift wrapping station at Barnes & Noble on Sunday, December 11th from 11am - 7pm. All donations received from the gift wrapping station will support the Cougar Valley PTA.
Volunteers are needed to help with this fun event. Barnes & Noble will provide everything we need to wrap gifts however if you want to bring/donate fancy ribbon or sparkling bows to add that extra holiday flair, it might just help boost our donations.
The entire family is invited to come out and join in on the fun! Note: In the event that minors are wrapping gifts, at least one adult will need to be present.
To volunteer at the wrapping station, visit our Sign-Up Genius site.
And don't forget to stop by Barnes & Noble on Sunday, December 11th to support our library and PTA!

Cougar Valley is in the beginning stages of starting a “Watch Dogs” program at our school. You can learn about “Watch Dads of Great Students” by visiting www.fathers.com/watchdogs. This is an opportunity for all dads, step-dads, grandpas, uncles, adult brothers, and other important male role models of Cougar Valley students to get involved and support our school.
Please view the invitation for our first “Watch Dogs” kick-off event which will be held at 6:15 pm on November 16th at the Cougar Valley Cafeteria. If you are interested in attending, you can simply rsvp by sending an email or by returning the bottom portion of the invitation. An rsvp will help provide a sense of how many attendees to expect as food will be served. Thanks for your interest.
