    Cougar Mountain Families~
     
    Thank you for a wonderful open house and first full week back to school!  If you didn't get an opportunity to complete our brief DREAM SCHOOL SURVEY at open house please do so by clicking the link.  We also had a powerful experience with Erin Jones during our assembly on Thursday where she emphasized that no matter what challenges you've experienced, you can be successful and make your dreams come true!  Check out our social media accounts for pictures of the event! 
     
    IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
    • For student safety, all parent/guardians must have their ID on them and obtain a visitor badge if going beyond the office area.  Parent/guardians may only enter the building through the main front door.  If you are visiting our office prior to 7:20 in the morning you will enter using the far right door as there are adults supervising the area at that time.  If you are visiting after 7:20 you must ring the call button, show your ID and inform the office staff of the purpose for your visit.  Our office is typically open from 6:45-2:30 PM.  If you need to speak with a staff member or locate a student at the school between 2:30pm and 4:00pm please email preid@bethelsd.org (Assistant Principal) or bacorpuz@bethelsd.org (Principal) and we will work to communicate with the available staff members on campus.
     
    • Due to a Skyward elective scheduling error, there are about 85 students that have some sort of scheduling change that will take effect on Monday, 9/16. It is a good idea to login to Skyward/Family Access to see if your student has a schedule change, we will also be passing out new schedules for students on Monday morning. 
     
    • Our activity bus typically runs Monday-Thursday and leaves campus promptly at 4:15pm.  During the first two weeks of each sport season it also runs on Fridays.  For the fall sports season, the last Friday the activity bus will run is Friday, September 20.

    Track Meet: 9/18 @ 3:30 @ GKHS

Principal's Message

  • WELCOME TO THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR CMMS FAMILIES!

     

    Cougar Mountain Families,

    My name is Brittany Corpuz and I am your new Principal. I’ve been the Assistant Principal of Cougar Mountain for the past three years. Prior to that I taught 1st grade at Graham Elementary, and spent the first nine years of my career as an Instructional Coach and Teacher at a Native Tribal school. I truly love every aspect of being an educator!  It is my goal, each and every day, to create capable, connected and contributing members of our community! I have two children of my own, Kai’leia is 11 and will be in 6th grade next year, and Keh’ano is 8 and will be in 3rd grade next year. My husband is Brian Corpuz and he is a 5th grade teacher at Spanaway Elementary. We are truly committed on both a personal and professional level to ensure the success of our students here in Bethel. Cougar Pride!

    Sincerely,

    Brittany Corpuz

    Principal
