CKE Monday Notes

"If It's to Be, It's Up to Me"

Welcome Back Coker Family!

Good afternoon folks! We hope that everyone had an awesome Christmas break. As we embark on a new year and the second half of the school year, I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. We are seeing some GRRREAT things going on at Coker and we know that we will continue to make gains and help our students shine! Please remember that our focus should always be our students and their academic welfare. In order to help them grow in the classroom we want to encourage you and challenge you to try new things. As we work daily to prepare our students for the new state assessment and the next grade level, we must remember that by always doing the same thing that we've always done will not get us where we need to be. And the effects on student growth and your efforts in the classroom could lag behind at the end of the school year. I have said it before and I will say it again, we have the best faculty and staff in the county so I have no doubt that our Cubs will outshine all other students in the district! And I don't know about you but I want parents to desire for their child to attend Coker Elementary School. Remember, as always, Coker Cubs are GRRREAT!
