7th Grade Parents - If you haven't already, please login into your student's mypaymentsplus account and pay for him/her to go on our 7th Grade Field Trip to the Dallas Zoo on May 19th. Read all about it here. Thank you for your help and support!


Boys' Soccer Tryouts -

8th grade boys soccer tryouts begin Monday and continue through Wednesday. 7th grade boys soccer tryouts begin Wednesday and continue through Friday. Drop off time for both grades is 7:10 a.m. Tryouts begin at 7:25.


Raising Cane's Spirit Day - Raising Funds with RAISING CANE’S! Please join us for an ALL DAY Spirit Day on TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 2017 at the El Dorado/Tollway location. 15% of the funds raised will go to Cobb PTA! Please tell them you are with Cobb Middle School.


Parents of CURRENT 6TH GRADERS ONLY - If your student is not a current 6th grader at Cobb (in the 6th grade for the 2016-2017 school year), you do not need to read this message. Current 6th grade parents – our shot records have slowed somewhat, so please remember to get the most updated record in for your student as soon as possible. We need 12 more students to turn in a completed record to hit the 50% mark. Can you help us get this task finished?


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!
