Did you know??? As of the end of March, we had 347 more

Applecore bookmarks turned in than we won with last year! Keep
getting those last minute bookmarks in Cox Cubs! Friday is it!


I gave a challenge to my 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders that if they made it to a 5 Star Rating, then I would dye all of my hair “Cox
Cub Royal Blue” (they know that hair dye is a big “no, no” for me and thought I would look hilarious). With how hard they
were all trying on their tests, I really think they want to see me with bright blue hair in August!

Parent News: Our monthly SOT meeting will be this Tuesday at 5 pm in the Library and our PTA meeting will be
following at 6 pm in the Library. Students can earn 5 pts. extra credit for having their parents attend the PTA meeting (extra
credit will be put towards their lowest current grade score). Greenspun Junior High School is having their Parent
Orientation Night on April 24th at 6 pm in the Gym, following the presentation will be individual classroom presentations
on programs at GJHS.

DMC Garden Night Coming: Our garden is growing like crazy! We’ve already harvested some of our vegetables and the
students got to sample during lunch recess (vegetables were cleaned of course), chefs are coming next month to cook with our
third graders, and we are hosting a picnic night at Cox on May 1st from 5:30-7:00 pm. This will be a time for you and your
family to bring blankets and dinner, eat outside on our field, view our garden, and we’ll be sampling some of the harvest. It
doesn’t cost, there’s nothing going to be sold, we’re just outside enjoying the garden and picnic dinners with our families!

Congratulations to our Cox Cubs (2nd posting):
