We Love Volunteers!

Volunteers are appreciated and wanted at Cougar Ridge!

All volunteers in Issaquah Schools are required to complete the ANNUAL Volunteer Application for 2019-20 school year. This includes volunteering in your child’s classroom, Art Docent, Camp Warm Beach, or Library time. Click here for instructions and allow one week to process prior to any volunteer time.


Vote for Issaquah Schools!


ISD Renewal Levy will be on the February 11th, 2020 Ballot
The Issaquah School District will be asking voters to approve the renewal of the EP&O levy in February which to allow the district to continue to support the programs and services funded by the previous  2 year levy, which is expiring in 2020. Like a subscription, local school levies must be renewed, or the funding will be lost.

The 2020 EP&O Levy Renewal Levy continues support for:
Career & Technical Education • Mental Health Counselors • Special Education • Safety & Security • Dual Language Program   •  Early Childhood Learning & Preschool Opportunities • Highly Capable Program • Professional Development for Teachers  •  Expanded High School Schedules (7 periods instead of 6) at Issaquah High and Skyline High

The Issaquah School District is asking for less than it is legally allowed to collect. This maintains its current programs, while remaining fiscally responsible and sensitive to the over all tax rate. This is NOT a new tax. The proposed 2 year levy replaces the expiring 2018 levy at a lower overall tax rate.

Please remember to VOTE and if you have a student who will be 18 by the next election, please have them register to vote!

Auction 2020 - March 13th!

Welcome to the Roaring 20’s! Save the date for Friday, March 13th at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington for our biennial fundraiser that makes our PTSA programs and events possible throughout the year. Contact Ewelina Hickey with any questions!

We have many open positions still to fill for the Auction. Click here to see what we have and if you can help out!

Auction Parties are not only great fundraisers but they are great "FRIENDraisers!" They help raise money and they are a great community builder. Throwing a party is a great way for families to contribute to the Auction! You can throw an adult party, a kid's party or a family event. You can do it on your own or with a group of parents. 100% of the funds raised go directly to our school!

Click here for inspiration and info; also available in both Chinese and Korean. Be on the lookout for an Auction Party Flier coming home in backpacks next week! Contact our Auction Party Coordinator, Danielle Kolesnikov with any questions!
