Principal's Message

Dear Cougar Families,

Quarter 3 has come to an end and we are all ready for spring break! I hope everyone has a wonderful break and enjoys time with family and friends! As we enter the final quarter of the school year, I need to make you aware of some administrative changes at Cougar Elementary School. Beginning on Tuesday, April 11th, l will be the Acting Principal of Cougar Elementary School. I’ve served as the Assistant Principal of CES since August of 2021 and served Manassas Park City Schools as the interim EL Specialist during the 2020-2021 school year.  I have been an educator at Cougar Elementary since 2003 and accepted many leadership roles. I am very familiar with the school, staff, and the community and feel confident in supporting the CES community for the remainder of the school year in the interim role. Jessica Roach, Supervisor of Preschool Programs, will serve as the Acting Assistant Principal until the end of the school year. Mrs. Roach has been a strong leader of our preschool programs since August of 2021, and I am excited to work with her in her new role. Additionally, Eric Neff, Executive Director of Student Services and Operations, will join us as a third building administrator. Mr. Neff has decades of experience in Manassas Park City Schools in both teaching and school administration. He brings a wealth of knowledge to the school and looks forward to supporting our Cougar students and families for the remainder of the year.

I am confident we will continue to meet the needs of our students every day and that we will have a successful end to a great school year. I am excited to work with Mrs. Roach and Mr. Neff to continue all of our end of the school year traditions.

Manassas Park City Schools will begin the search for a new Cougar principal for the 2023-2024 school year in the coming weeks.


Mrs. Craighill
