        Cougar Ridge Green Team News!

We are launching a new initiative with local business Small Threads!  If this is the time of year where you clean out your kids' closet and drawers, those clothes and shoes can be used to benefit Cougar Ridge! Our school will receive funds from all *clean and resaleable* clothes and shoes at the consignment store! Anything not sold will be donated to KidVantage. For clothes that are *stained or torn* Small Threads has a partnership with Ridwell, so those items will be recycled instead of ending up in the landfill! We will have two *separate* boxes in the office for you to put your donated clothes and shoes. We will run this initiative for the entire school year so you can do this anytime! Thank you for supporting our school and helping to keep our planet a little greener!

 

   

Recycle! 

The Cougar Ridge Green Team and PTSA are proud to offer two specialty item recycling bins!  One for markers, pens and pencils.  Our newest bin, which was purchased using funds from the Spirit Swap is for glue sticks and glue bottles.  

Please make sure to only put the correct items in each box

Both bins are located by the front office. 

Thank you for doing your part to help protect our planet!
