Volunteer Opportunities

We would like to welcome our NEW Volunteer Coordinator, Teal McWhirter! Teal will be reaching out to our community soon!

Cougar Run has many volunteer opportunities. We appreciate the time and talents that our community contributes to our school, staff and students.

Volunteers- Be sure to fill out the Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement when you go through the process of Express Check-In. Messages are sent to our community when events in need of volunteers arise. There will also be opportunities at various events and in the classrooms to sign up. Click here to download the form and fill it out. We want all adults that are regularly in the building to wear an ID badge made yearly by our photo company.

High School students should contact Teal McWhirter via email to find out about community service hour opportunities. Cougar Run also contacts HRHS when such opportunities arise.

We have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving! We're excited to host our yearly tradition Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday November 20, 2019. Due to the increase in visitors, we are hoping some volunteers will help assist with this event in the cafeteria and hallway where our guests will be eating lunch. Thanksgiving Feast SignUP


Are you interested in a volunteer opportunity that is regularly scheduled, but only a short amount of time per commitment? Assisting our students to cross the street safely is a top priority. Times before and after school are available. This commitment is on school days at 8:20-9:45 every morning and 3:30-3:45 every afternoon. Training will be provided.
