Teens for Jeans Drive - Cobb MS will join Wakeland HS once again for the Teens for Jeans campaign. This drive is aimed at gathering jeans that are then donated to homeless teenagers, as a pair of jeans is one of the most requested items from homeless youth. We will have a grade level competition with the winning grade earning the use of their personal devices during lunch for one day, Friday March 3rd. (find out more).

Current 6th Grade parents – Please remember to send in an updated immunization record for your student. We appreciate those of you who have already sent one in. Nurse Hodgkiss has been teaching CPR with our 8th graders, so all records turned in so far will be entered next week. Please email if you have questions.

7th Grade Field Trip Info - Find out all the details about your 7th grader's field trip to the Dallas Zoo in May! Some deadlines are coming up!

FISD Dual Credit Parent Information Meeting - March 2nd at the Collin College Preston Ridge Campus. Read more about it here.

8th Grade Field Trip - Payment is due by March 3rd through your student's MyPaymentsPlus account. If you wish to be a chaperone, please select that option when you pay for your student. A chaperone fee will then be added to your student's account and you may pay it online as well. If you have questions about payment please contact Brenda Biller at

Join the Club - One of the best parts of middle school is getting involved with a group of your peers to do something you enjoy outside the classroom. Cobb has a diverse list of clubs and organizations to fit every student's interests, so encourage your child to try one out!
