Cougar Challenge is a HUGE success!
2018 Record Breaking Year…$62,447.98!!!!

What an amazing day we had for the Cougar Challenge this past month! Thank you to everyone who volunteered, cheered on the kids, sponsored the event, pledged, or encouraged! We also got special visits from the Tampa Bay Rays' mascot, Raymond, and our very own Cimino Cougar. Overall, the kids--and the adults--had a great time!

We made and hugely surpassed our goal of $35,000 this year and raised the most we have ever raised at Cimino beating last year amount by over $3,000!!! This number is before expenses are taken out, but can you believe it?!?! We surely have a great school with very generous families, so thank you! Because of all of you, we will be able to purchase new technology, fulfill teacher grants and continue to host many great PTA programs and events for our school. Also, because we made our number, Coach Macko will be dressing up at the end of the year dance again! Yeah Coach!
