Cougar Points

Cougar points is a new program from the College & Career Center that encourages students to engage in SLVHS' College & Career events and programs.
 
How Cougar Points are Earned
 
Throughout the year, events and programs will be promoted where points can be earned. These will be promoted through email, the daily bulletin and on posters around campus.
