Dear Cougar Family,

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who assisted and/or participated with our May Madness event. It was a wonderful evening, and just lovely to see our campus filled with our Cougar families.

I would also like to wish all of our Cougar Moms a very Happy Mother’s Day. I hope that you have a lovely day and are spoiled rotten.

Please take note of the following announcements for this week.



  • The Nomination Committee is recommending the following slate of nominations for the 2019/2020 school year. We will be voting the new board in at our final PTA meeting of the year on Friday, May 24th at 9:30 am. We will also be hosting a volunteer breakfast at that time. We hope you will join us.
    • President: Cheryl Bryne
    • Fundraising - Lindsay Tremelling
    • Treasurer - Sherri Stecher
    • Secretary- Nancy Bradham
    • Programs  - Carla Zegerman



  • Please visit this link to see updated information about the end of year activities.



  • Parents: We are looking for some donations for unused ear-buds to use for end-of-year activities with students who may not have their own. They don't have to be high-tech or fancy! Please send any new earbud donations to the front office. Thank you!

Testing season is right around the corner. Just a few reminders:

  • Please be mindful when scheduling appointments or other obligations that may make your child absent from end-of-year testing. Know that we have other engaging school-wide activities on the testing make-up days such as Field Day, and students will not want to miss those.
  • We need 100 school volunteers during testing (there are some afternoon slots available!) Please sign up to volunteer here, and we look forward to seeing you!
  • Also, know that rules about cell phones and electronic/activity trackers during testing have become more strict. If a student is caught or observed with a cell phone during a testing session, he/she is likely to be dismissed from the testing session and will have to re-take a different form of the test. That is not a risk worth taking. We appreciate your help with this as we try to encourage students to be responsible with their technology.
