Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 1-5. At Coosa, we believe that all faculty and staff members are teachers - regardless of their position. During this week, we honor all employees for their dedication to the field of education. If you are interested in surprising a faculty or staff member with a small treat, please do so.

Cell Phones and Smart Watches

Students are not allowed to make phone calls from personal cell phones or smart watches at school. If a student is not adhering to these guidelines, the watch or phone will be turned in to the office for parent pick up. The item will not be allowed back to school. If your student wears a smart watch to school during state testing in May, they will be required to remove the watch prior to testing. Please contact an administrator with any questions.

Lemon Trees Have Been Added

Earlier in the week, the NEHS along with our friends from the Sea Island Gardening Club (one of our wonderful business partners) planted two lemon trees next to our fig tree and blueberry bushes. Students learned how to space the tree properly, dig a hole twice as wide and deep, and the proper steps in caring for the tree. We can't wait for our lemon trees to bear fruit!
