WalkAbout

WalkAbout Volunteers Needed

WalkAbout is a PTSA program that partners with the school to provide a positive adult presence on campus during peak traffic and unstructured times. At CMMS, this is before school, after school, and during lunch. WalkAbout volunteers have designated places where they walk around the school campus encouraging appropriate behavior and allowing students to feel safe and secure.
 
In order to become a WalkAbout volunteer, you must be approved to volunteer through the Issaquah School District. Please be sure to complete the ISD Volunteer Application. You will also need to watch a WalkAbout training video.
 
We are now ready to train our volunteers and will be emailing those interested in WalkAbout this week with the training information. If you are interested in being trained, please email Monica at walkabout@cougarmountainptsa.org.
 
Thank you for your interest in making a positive difference in the lives of CMMS students!

Reflections
Reflections Art Contest
 
Reflections is a National PTA arts recognition program that helps students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence, and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful not only in school, but in life.

Students in pre-K through grade 12 create original works of art in response to a theme. The theme for the 2022-2023 program year is Show Your Voice. Students submit their completed works of art in one, or all, of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.

For more information, click HERE.
 
We are also looking for a Reflections Chair to oversee the Reflections Art Contest. More details about leading the Reflections Program can be found HERE. If you have interest in Arts Education and would like to support the Reflections Art Program, please email president@cougarmountainptsa.org.
