Save The Date!

The Cougar Ridge biennial Auction will take place on March 13, 2020. Save the date for a night of fun and fundraising for our school! We are looking for volunteers to help with this event. It takes a village to pull it off. Click here for a detailed list of roles we need to fill. Please email Ewelina Hickey if interested!

We are in procurement mode and can use your help! As you go about life this summer - at the dentist, birthday parties, your favorite workout place, your workplace - please ask them whether they would be interested in supporting Cougar Ridge Elementary. Please email us the company name and contact information, and we will follow up with them for a donation.
