Yearbook Cover Contest 

Help us create a yearbook cover that incorporates your student's artwork this year!  For all interested students, please submit your own drawing of Bobby Bobcat for a chance to be featured on this year’s yearbook cover.  Attached is a template for any student who is interested in participating.  Submit your artwork in the PTSA box located in the Front Office by November 30, 2021


Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers Needed to Help with November's Staff Luncheon – November's staff luncheon is going to be a Thanksgiving feast.  We need your help preparing all the delicious traditional and non-traditional side dishes.  View the SignUpGenius to help.

Looking for VOICE Mentor Volunteers – Make a meaningful difference by becoming a VOICE Mentor!  Our Cougar Ridge teachers have identified twice as many kids at Cougar Ridge who would benefit from mentoring than we currently have the capacity to support.  In addition, ISD considers VOICE Mentors crucial for the academic and social-emotional support of our students.  That means that you would be approved to be one of the few parent volunteers who is allowed to be on-campus, in the school during the school day, even during Phase 1 of COVID restrictions.  Please consider applying here if you can!

PTSA Volunteers: There are still many important chair positions open on the PTSA for 2021-2022! YOU are important and have the skills we need!  Please contact Julie Chang if you have any questions or are interested in getting involved.


Contribute Pictures to the Yearbook!

We are collecting photos throughout the year so that we can create a fun and memorable yearbook for the 2021-2022 school year.  Check out the weekly Blast to see which photos we are currently collecting.  Photos can be uploaded at anytime to the link provided in the Blast or to the link below:

https://paulahobbs.smugmug.com/upload/8M2Msx/CougarRidgeParentUpload

Please make sure all photos are of current Cougar Ridge students. 

Last day to upload photos and to purchase yearbooks will be March 31, 2022 due to Dorian’s submission and printing timeline so don’t delay in uploading photos and purchasing your yearbook.
