On behalf of the entire Cougar Canyon staff, I’d like to welcome you to a new school year! I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by and I hope that all of you have had a great time with your loved ones. Additionally, I’d like to extend a special welcome is to our new Cougar Canyon families. You’ve chosen a great school! As with prior years, our 2010-2011 school year promises to be exciting and full of learning. Our staff works really hard to make this a kid-friendly place, while at the same time maintaining high standards for student learning and behavior. We look forward to working with you and your child.

Our goal is to help your child be successful in school and to acquire the skills necessary to be successful in life. This goal can best be accomplished through a strong partnership between the teacher and the parent. Attending our Open House, scheduled to be held the evening of September 23rd, will enable you to learn about specific ways you can work in partnership with your child’s teacher to help your child succeed. We hope that you will choose to attend this very important meeting.

In addition to working with your own child, we hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities available for parents to become involved in our school. The PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) meets regularly and it is great way to meet other parents and learn more about your child’s schooling. Our PAC does a fantastic job of directly supporting our classrooms and our teacher efforts. Therefore, the more parents who volunteer, the more enriching a program we are able to provide.

You can be extremely proud of entire ‘Cougar Canyon Crew’ (teachers, support and custodial staff) for they put their souls into teaching and helping students become life-long learners. Your involvement is greatly appreciated and desired!

Welcome back!

Mr. A. Jiwa
Principal
