Cocoa High School Monthly News
Note from Principal Stewart
Hello Cocoa Tigers!
Welcome back to school and Happy New Year! I look forward to a successful end to first semester, which ends on Wednesday, January 11th, and a great start to second semester, which begins on Thursday, January 12th. This year is moving quickly and so every day counts towards meeting graduation and promotion requirements.
Please join our celebration of our football team's STATE CHAMPIONSHIP title this Saturday, January 7th from 11-12 pm at Cocoa Village's Riverfront Park. Come out and hear our marching band and cheerleaders, and meet the players and coaches who made our state championship dreams come true! We look forward to seeing you there!
January Family Events:
Please be sure to join us for some great family evening events this month:
On Thursday, January 19th we will hold a “Financial Fun Family Night” event from 6-8 pm in the Auditorium. The whole family can learn about concepts and skills relating to money while enjoying pizza. Several financial institutions and FPL will be available to provide guidance and answers to frequently asked questions.
Our community Literacy Night Event will be held on Friday, January 27th from 5:30 to 7 pm. This is a whole family fun event focused on literacy activities and a love of reading! We are partnering with our feeder elementary schools Saturn, Fairglen, Endeavour, and Cambridge for this celebration.
The other event is our Curriculum Night on Tuesday, January 31st 6-8 pm in the high school auditorium. During this event families will learn about the graduation and promotion requirements for our students in grades 7-11. This is also an event that our rising 7th graders (current 6th graders) should attend to learn more about Cocoa High.
Thank you and TIGER PRIDE!

Cocoa High School Dress Code Reminder
Parents/guardians, we could use your help in reminding your child(ren) of the dress code policy at CHS.
Pride is taken in the appearance of Cocoa High School students. School is the student's place of business where appropriate dress and hygiene are important. Students must dress in good taste out of respect for each other and their school. Students must dress in a manner that would not constitute a disruption, safety hazard, or impropriety. The responsibility for the dress and appearance of each student properly rests with the student and his/her guardian(s). The dress code is subject to the discretion of the administration.
- Garments must be of a length and fit that are suitable to the build and stature of the student and must not expose undergarments or be otherwise immodest.
- Clothing, jewelry, and accessories shall not convey messages that are crude, vulgar/profane, violent/death-oriented (Gothic), gang related, sexually suggestive, and/or promoting weapons, alcohol, drugs, or tobacco.
- Pierced jewelry shall be limited to the ear. Dog collars, tongue rings, wallet chains, large hair picks, chains that connect one part of the body to another, or other jewelry/accessories that pose a safety concern for the student or other shall be prohibited. Clear plastic spacers or retainers may be worn in facial piercings. Band-aids cannot cover a piercing.
- Hats, curlers, scarves, bandanas, and sweat bands are not to be worn in buildings or outside in hallways. Extreme hair styles or hair colors are prohibited.
