Welcome Back!

I am so excited to be back and I can't wait to get to know my students! This website was created to help us stay connected and updated. Every week there will be new information added. Each student is required to write their assignments in their planner and this website should be used as a back up. The Mickey Cox Weekly Roundup (http://cox.cusd.com/news.htm ) is given out in class every week. It has upcoming events, important news, and sports information. The best way to contact me is by email, but you can also call the school and I will return your phone call as soon as possible. You are more than welcome to stop by before or after school, but if you would like to talk about your child's progress then please set up a conference with me. I will be coaching all year long and my afternoons will be very busy. Most importantly, I want you to know that your child's education is my #1 priority. I take my job very seriously and I put my whole heart in to teaching. If we work as a team, I believe you child will be successful.
