Cougar Ridge Art Fair Wall


Thank you to everyone who attended our PTSA Art Fair on Tuesday.  Our Cougar Ridge families created amazing art work on the ball wall by the playground.  Thank you for your generous donations.  A huge thank you to Dorothy Davis for organizing this event!

Cougar Ridge Green Team is proud to host a SPIRIT SWAP!

Please only donate CLEAN spirit wear items through Friday, April 7th.  

Cougar Ridge Green Team is collecting Cougar Ridge Spirit Wear current and former Bobcat families no longer use. We will host a sale in honor of Earth Day, the last week of April for current families to purchase these “retro” designs to give the garments a 2nd life. 

We will repurpose damaged items to make a unique Cougar Ridge Spirit Quilt and properly donate unwearable textile Spirit Wear.  Please email Wendy Dubrow with questions.
