Here's what's happening...

February 4th, 2022

Dear Cougar Families -

I hope you all are loving the snow as much as I am and I hope the kids are getting outside for some fun in the snow!


If you still need to schedule a conference, please call the office. We would be happy to help you!


Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place next week starting Monday, February 7th.

Please follow the link below to view the flyer with all of the book fair information:

Our Valentine parties will take place on Friday, February 11th at 1:30. Classroom teachers have been working with the assigned room parent for each room to plan the celebrations. We have plenty of boxes of Valentines in the office if your child needs some or forgets theirs at home:) If you would like us to send some home with your child for them to bring to school to share with friends at the classroom party, just call the office and let us know.

PASTAPALOOZA: Please SAVE THE DATE for Pastapalooza on 4/1/2022!! We are in planning mode and hoping for a traditional Pastapalooza but more to come.

BOOK FAIR: Even though it is still Winter, it is almost time for our ‘Spring’ Scholastic Book Fair! It will be held in our school Library February 7 - 11, 2022. Students will be able to shop during

their scheduled Library Related Arts class (see the schedule below) and during Noon Options.
Students can shop with a parent or guardian after school until 6:00pm. To keep our Book Fair
safe, if necessary, we may have to limit the number of people in the Library at one time. Masks
will need to be worn when visiting the Fair. If you are not able to come to our in-person fair, our Online Book Fair runs February 7 -20, 2022. You will find a great selection of books along with free shipping on book orders over$25.00! All orders earn Scholastic Dollars for our school. The link for more information is above in the EBackpack.

Prideful Paws Program: FEBRUARY AND MARCH DATES ARE LIVE! The Colonial Hills PTA is excited to announce the Prideful Paws program! We are thrilled to continue to spread Cougar Pride through our community. Paws are meant for a Paws-itive purpose (birthday, big game, great report card, survived a challenging week, thanking someone). You may order "Yard Paws" (5-10 paws based on yard size) for a $25 minimum donation or a "Door Paw" (one paw near the front door) for a $10 minimum donation. Paws will be placed before 2pm and left out for 48 hours at the address you select. Dates are first come first served. Order link is: HERE
