Each year, Cougar Ridge Elementary PTSA recognizes outstanding volunteers, members, and educators who go above and beyond for the benefit of our students, through the Golden Acorn, Outstanding Educator, and Outstanding Advocate Awards. Each Golden Acorn and Outstanding Advocate Award recipient is given an award pin and his/her name is added to a plaque in the main office. Golden Acorn and Outstanding Advocate recipients are honored at a PTSA meeting and at a district-wide reception.
