Welcome to Cougar Tracks!

Question of the Month

Q: Does our school collect Box Tops all year long or do we only collect them during Box Tops drives?

A: CV collects Box Tops all year long!  Drives are designed to remind students and their families that our school collects Box Tops. The PTA sends home collection sheets every month with students in backpack mail with the hope that each student will turn in at least 1 full sheet a school year. Remember to ask your family and friends to save Box Tops for your school too! Box Tops typically earn our school over $800 each year. Way to go CV students!

Teacher Wish List is Back! 
To view our teacher's wishes, please stop in to the Cougar Valley office and take a peek at the requests from your teacher. If you wish to make donation, you can take the "request slip" and return it along with your purchase.

The Wish List Program was started at Cougar Valley by the PTA to help teachers request donations, from parents and community members, of school supplies needed for their classrooms not normally covered by other budgets or grants. Often these are supplies that some children cannot afford or that teachers use for special projects, classroom rewards, or enhanced learning tools.
