A Brief Message from your Principal, Katie Johnson
Hello Cougar Families,
On behalf of our Cougar Staff, thank you! Your unwavering support is much appreciated, and we are grateful for you. As a reminder, there is no school next week. I hope we are all able to take time to be present with our families and show our gratitude for one another. Take time to notice the good things and appreciate them, maybe even take time to express your gratitude to yourself or someone else.
Take care of yourselves and each other!

Meet our 2nd Grade Team
My name is Kate Howard, and I am so proud to be part of the amazing second grade team again this year. This is my 14th year teaching, and my 6th year at Cottonwood Creek. I have always taught first and second graders. I feel so lucky to be part of such a strong, supportive community like the one we have here at Cottonwood. When I’m not in “teacher mode”, I am busy at home chasing around my 5 year old and 2.5 year old twins. There is certainly never a dull (or quiet) moment in the Howard household!
