Student of the Month Spotlight
Coach Elliott brings a little bit of joy to Cold Springs. He will soon be retiring, and we will miss him. He has been a great mentor, teacher, coach, and friend to many.
The counseling program has really been pushing to improve our Free Application for Student Aid completions. At this time, 50.7% of Cold Springs seniors has completed their FAFSA applications. This is the highest in the county school system. Our goal is to have 75% of our seniors complete their FAFSA. Cold Springs will be receiving the "Best Hustle" award by Alabama Possible, a statewide nonprofit that breaks down barriers to prosperity. This is given to schools that have increased their FAFSA completions by at least 10% from the previous school year. It's very important that students along with parents complete their FAFSA applications as early as possible in order to maximize their potential college financial aid. If any senior has not completed his or her FAFSA, please get this completed ASAP. If assistance is needed, call Mrs. Burgess.
College Campaign Week was a great success. During this week many colleges waived their application fee. This is the week that our counseling program encourages seniors to apply for colleges and promotes what different college institutions have to offer. Our faculty decorated classroom doors according to the college they attended or their favorite college. Included in the decorations were facts and information pertaining to that college. Although all the doors looked amazing, Mrs. Lori Oden's door decorations won first prize!

A note from our Assistant Principal
Can you believe we are almost at Christmas break? What a great first semester it has been!
As Mr. Dickerson alluded to in the last newsletter, we depend on our partnerships with parents to make sure our students come to school ready to learn and ready to do their very best. Every minute counts! Because our students have set a high bar of achievement, we all have to continue to work hard to maintain the “A” that we achieved on our state report card this past year. It is important for our students to be at school every day, on time, and prepared, so that we can continue to achieve at high levels.
Our mission and our vision are now painted in the hallway to remind us each day why we are here: To inspire students, challenge learners, and prepare leaders so that Every graduate is prepared for college, career, and life as a productive citizen. While that goal looks different for each graduate depending on their dreams and aspirations, there is one common thread--each student must graduate with a high school diploma and a skill to be ready for the world that lies ahead.
We are blessed with great students, great teachers, great parents, and a great school. Thank you for the part you play in continuing to make our school great!
