Student cooking competition returns
This year's annual Kids in the Kitchen/Junior Chef Competition event will be held Friday, May 19! District 4th - 6th grade students are invited to submit recipes for their favorite after-school snacks. The recipes, which must be submitted by Friday, March 17, do not have to be original. Student finalists will be selected from the submitted recipes and will be invited to prepare their culinary masterpieces at a Friday, May 19, event. A panel of judges will select the grand prize winners. Past award categories have included health-conscious foods; simple, kid-friendly preparation; fun food; and judge’s choice.

Cougar Spirit Day
Every Thursday is School Spirit Day at Cathcart! While hard to define, school spirit involves a strong emotional connection with school. School spirit can improve a student’s commitment to education and creates a positive learning environment for both students and teachers. School spirit develops and fosters relationships among people. School spirit unifies the student body and makes fun memories for students, teachers, and families. Students, staff members and parents are encouraged to wear our school colors – green and white – to school every Thursday.
APEX Fun Run
The APEX program helps schools raise funds while promoting fitness and teaching students fun and engaging lessons about leadership. Lessons stress character traits such as integrity, honesty and being uplifting. Watch for more information about how you and your child can be involved in February.
Important Morning Reminder
