Cougar Run PTA
Due to building closures in the Spring of 2020 and continuous restrictions in place by the State of Colorado and DCSD, many of our events will be put on 'hold' during the 20-21 school year. Please check back to this page for updates on events as restrictions are lifted. Thank you!
A Little Bit About Us
In May of 2018, in an effort to become more autonomous and reduce administrative fees, Cougar Run PIE voted to change the organization’s affiliation and become Cougar Run PTA. This change has had no impact on the overall scope of our parent organization, as the purpose of enriching the experience of the Cougar Run Community by providing supportive resources (funds, materials, services) remains the same. With this new affiliation, many of the administrative operations will become simpler and more streamlined, thus making the various officer positions more manageable and appealing to those who may volunteer to serve.

As an affiliate of Colorado PTA, each member of a local chapter is required to pay annual dues of $6.75. This amount is set by the Colorado and National Organizations (No local fee is collected.) and is not meant be burdensome. Please contact our Cougar Run PTA if you would like to join, but need assistance paying this fee.
We hold three major fundraisers to support the Cougar Run staff & students, the classroom curriculum, various enrichment activities, technology and the Learning Commons.
We continue to provide regular opportunities to strengthen our community through various social and educational activities throughout the year.
