Cougar Connection Parent/teacher Organization
Cougar Connection is the PTO (Parent/teacher Organization) for grades K-5 at AGWSR Schools. All of our ideas, cutting and counting, fundraising, and behind-the-scenes hard work benefit the students of our elementary tremendously. Our efforts provide assemblies, field trips, classroom parties, supplies for teachers, books for the libraries, equipment for the playground, and many other things at the school.
We have an annual “Family Fund Night” every spring in the Elementary Gymnasium that the students look forward to each year. This is one of the largest fund-raisers along with the 3-on-3 basketball tournament that was started in 2009.
Our collection program is also a huge partner in our fundraising efforts. We collect BoxTops for Education (providing us with .10 per BoxTop) Campbell’s UPC labels, Hy-Vee receipts, Pizza Ranch Wagon Wheel tabs from many of their boxes (providing us with .25 per tab), and pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. The communities are becoming more aware of how saving these products benefit us and we are so excited to see our Collection Center growing every day! Cougar Connection thanks everyone who has helped in any way with this group. We thank YOU for your continued support!
