News from the Cougar Café

The Cougar Cafe staff has been hard at work making exciting changes to the dining experience at CA.  As we stated before, we now have a Sub & Salad Shop that is open to all students ages PK-12.  You do not have to pre-order for this bar, simply arrive in the Cafe and let them know you would like a sub/salad.  Many of you have asked about placing money on your child’s lunch account to use at the Sub Shop or Snack Bar.  We are happy to announce that we are now offering this option!  You can send money to school in an envelope with your child’s name on it and Lunch Account written on the front.  This money can be used for hot lunch, the snack bar (ages 4th grade and up) or the Sub/Salad Shop.


New Lunch Form

There is a new lunch form posted for a two-week period of time. This will assist the Cougar Cafe with ordering lunches more timely.
It is VERY important that you fill out the lunch form if you plan on eating hot lunch! This form will only be available until Friday afternoon of this week, so please order now.

If you have any questions please contact Nadine Dixon at  Thank you!!
