We Love Volunteers!
Even with COVID-19, volunteers are appreciated and wanted at Cougar Ridge! With COVID-19, there will be no volunteers physically at the school at this time. However, our hope is that we can get back to volunteering soon - or may have virtual volunteer opportunities! All volunteers in Issaquah Schools are required to complete the ANNUAL Volunteer Application for 2020-21 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. ... read full article
