Meet Coach Abby Pando  & Coach Josh MCKINNEY


I am very excited to be the P.E. teacher at Cox Elementary! I am a graduate of Angelo State University where I competed in Track and Field. Go RAMS!  I am currently in my 19th year of teaching and coaching, with 18 years in LISD!  :)

My husband is a detective for the Cedar Park Police Dept. and we have been blessed with two beautiful boys, JAKE and LUKE. They sure keep us on our toes! :) We also have a very hyper and fun loving Boston Terrier, her name is Ginger!

I Know we will have a fun and exciting year in P.E.!

Coach Pando 

I'm excited to be starting my first year here at Cox Elementary.  I graduated from Bellevue University in Omaha, NE where I competed in basketball.  I am from Des Moines, Iowa and moved here to Austin a little over a year ago.  My wife, Jessica is a native of Austin and is an attorney at Lorenz & Lorenz.  I look forward to meeting every student and helping them develop healthy habits.

P.E. Information:

In P.E., we will incorporate different sports units each month as well as fun and interactive games for our students. We will also be doing Health days with a focus on bones, muscles, nutrition, heart health and hygiene.  

 Run Club is offered to any 2nd-5th graders interested in joining.  We will be running on the Comet track every THURSDAY(depending on grade level).  This will take place from 3:00-3:30.

 "Running for Fun" will be the emphasis for all students as it is a lifelong sport!  You can find additional information on the run club form.  It will also be sent out at the end of August so that your student may return to me to be able to participate. 

This year our community fundraiser will be determined soon!

Stay tuned for more
