Cougar Notes for the Week of August 10, 2020

The Cougar Family welcomes new staff starting with us this week: 
Me, Ms. Marie Laboy- I joined the Cougar Family July 1st, leaving the Shallotte Pirates to move to Cougar Country!  This is my 6th year as Principal, and I am blessed to share the year with all of you!
Ms. Parrow- CTE- Ms. Parrow moved up to middle school from Southport Elementary!  She brings a wealth of experience to our students!!
Mr. Silsby- TA with Ms. Prendergast.  Mr. Silsby will be joining us from the Charlotte area.
Ms. Sumner- TA with Ms. Prendergast. Ms. Sumner joins us from Graham, NC
Along with all our staff, we look forward to working with you during this "new and unusual" school year!
Student schedules will be a condensed version of their schedules when they get back to school.  We know that some students will need to access classes and work at a time different from the assigned schedule.  We will do our best to insure EVERY student has access to his/her classes.  
Parents- please monitor your student's progress through Parent Portal on Power School.  You can pick up your registration information when you come in for student materials.  Please bring a photo ID with you.
Attendance and grades will be taken in PowerSchool this year.  
OPEN HOUSE will be virtual- we will post short informational videos on our webpage and FACEBOOK to get you the information you need.  
Reach out to our PTA and help them support our school.  Because of COVID and to keep our staff and students healthy, we cannot allow visitors or parents in the building.  Let's get creative so we can build our school spirit in a new way for now!!!
Feel free to contact me at if you have specific ideas or concerns. We're here to support you!
As always...Go Cougars!
