caring cougar
Every month at Carrigan Intermediate School, a "Caring Cougar" is selected from each classroom and recognized at a ceremony, where an administrator reads a description of each student's achievements or good deeds and presents him/her with a certificate. This year, honorees are also receiving bumper stickers, and a group of "Ultimate Caring Cougars" will be chosen at the end of the year and invited to a special ceremony. The school will also soon be holding a T-shirt design contest, with the winning design going on shirts for Caring Cougars.
