Coker Cubs Weekly News

Coker Mission--Every Child, Every Day

We support and foster a positive community of successful, life-long learners and leaders by meeting the needs of every individual while challenging each one to reach full potential.

Vending Machines

Revenue from vending machines situated in all areas of the school shall be controlled by the school principal and processed through the SAF/CAF System. Schools are to contract with a firm whereby the vendor agrees to service the vending machines and collect the money. The school then receives a periodic commission check from the vendor.

Commission received is campus revenue and is placed into a 900 Campus

Activity Fund account.

As required by House Bill 52, NEISD has adopted a policy governing the expenditure of local funds from vending machines that require local funds to be related to educational purpose and provide a commensurate benefit to students.

Copy Machines

Teachers, staff, and volunteers are asked to yield to teachers who are copying during their planning periods. If you must make copies outside of your planning period, you may need to adjust time either before or after school or try another copy location on campus.


With these seasonal changes, we are all likely to become ill at some point throughout the year. If you are sick, please enter your absence into SmartFind as soon as possible. The SmartFind system only calls out during certain hours. Please take time to call substitutes as well. Everyone was given two laminated, pink sheets for ease of access to substitute information earlier this year. The success of the campus depends on staff members.

Grade Level Team Photos

Wear this year's Coker spirit shirt to be photographed as a GL team on Friday, January 29th. Photos will be taken at the beginning of your planning period.

Tax Preparation

Gary Barr from H&R Block will be here on Tuesday, February 2nd. Staff members are welcome to "drop-off" tax info with him to complete. He will be set up in the teacher workroom from 10:30-12:30.

A note from Gary Barr: As part of our services to NEISD we will provide fee discounts for in-office retail tax preparation services, for online tax preparation services, or for H&R Block software purchases. We will also donate $20 per new HRB client who completes a return with us to the NEISD Education Fund.
