CHS Re-Opening Plan

Welcome

We believe:

  • The education of students is a responsibility shared by students, faculty and staff, parents, and the community.
  • All students must have opportunities to learn and to be successful.
  • Maximum student learning takes place in a positive environment that includes consistency and structure.
  • When engaged in rigorous, authentic learning activities that target a variety of learning styles, all students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to attain personal and professional success.

Healthy Choices
During Summer Learning 4-H sessions Ms. Gianna taught students about making healthy choices. Students drew food that would make a healthy plate and illustrated other healthy choices such as going outside and playing. Students then played a game to reinforce the healthy choices they learned about in their 4-H session.
Animals
In another Summer Learning 4-H session with Mrs. Reichert students investigated pictures of wild animal tracks and scat replicas (animal fecal droppings)  to identify which animals they were left by.
High school performers and athletes have been preparing for the upcoming school year. Students have been attending band camp under the direction of Mr. Ingram and color guard camp under the direction of  Ms. Redmond. Students have also been attending athletic workouts and practices directed by coaches Bailey, Bell, Elliott, Thomas, Weeks, White, and Wilson.

Kay Jennings, Central graduate and Executive Director of Talladega Clay Randolph Child Care Corporation (TCR) presented the Coosa County school board members with an update on the proposal of opening an additional Head Start and Early Head Start program in Coosa County.  The Head Start program located in Goodwater will continue operations while the new, additional program would be  located in the former Central High School building adjacent to the current Central Elementary and Central High Schools.  Mrs. Jennings was joined by Kelly Mumper, Cheaha Regional Head Start Director, who helped secure a $343,456.00 grant to renovate a portion of the former Central High School building into a state of the art Head Start program. We are thankful at the prospect of having a state of the art early childhood education program adjacent to Central Elementary and High Schools and what this will mean to Coosa County families and students entering kindergarten. Additionally, this presents a unique opportunity for fulfilling the vision of Central High School students gaining work experience in real world settings. 
TCR Presentation

A second presentation at the Board of Education meeting last Thursday was from Reagan Cardwell, representing the Student Government Association (SGA) of Central High School.  Reagan presented the board members with Coosa County Schools Board Member polo shirts in appreciation for helping SGA spread all the good news about what our students and staff are doing at Coosa County Schools. School board members are pictured in their new shirts alongside the district they represent.

 

 

 

 

The first session of Coosa County Schools Summer Learning program ended with a visit from some pretty exciting guests. Coosa County Schools partnered with the Alabama Nature Center (ANC) to teach our students about Alabama's ecosystems. ANC surprised our students by bringing their gopher tortoise, Big Mama, as well as pine snake for the students to pet. Parents can still register their child for the second session of the Coosa County Schools Summer Learning program, July 12-23, by going to www.coosaschools.k12.al.us

 

 

 

 

 

 

Central High School students had the opportunity to volunteer during the Summer Learning camps in order to earn their required Cougar Courtesy Hours (25 hours a year for 9th-12th graders and 5 hours a year for 7th-8th graders).

The Cougar Cubs STEM camp students are designing and constructing their prototype for the "Edd Drop." The Egg Drop project introduces students to physics concepts as they  use various materials and problem solve to build a device which needs to act somewhat like a parachute in that the descent needs to be slowed in order to resist the force of gravity and ultimately protect the raw egg from the fall.

"After 24 years, Janet Carr has decided to retire from the Coosa County School System as an instructional aide.  Her tenure in Coosa County Schools began at Goodwater Elementary School in 1997 after receiving a phone call from Dr. William Campbell.  "He needed an aide for a student who had multiple needs.  That year I learned patience and unconditional love, " states Carr.  All of her experience has been in special education as an instructional aide working directly with students with the exception of one year when she worked in a resource room for teachers making copies and checking out activity resources for teachers to use in their classrooms.  She has worked at Central Elementary, Middle and High School throughout the years.  Mrs. Carr has enjoyed her time working with many very special students that have been in the school system and hopes she has had a positive impact on them.  She has already signed up to substitute for the upcoming school year."

Summer Learning Kicks-Off at Central Coosa

Members of the Master Builders robotics team had a great time as they participated in a week-long camp last week.  The camp was taught by Mr. Nick Nicholson. Campers learned new skills such as using a gyroscope to program their robots.  Teams then competed to earn points by finishing missions and racing against each other. Kyle Ballard and Wyatt Kimbell were the first place winners and Kaleb Ballard and Matthew Eubanks were the runners-up. The robotics team is sponsored by Meg Aman and Angela Hughes. 

Students started loading the buses Monday morning at the community schools to kick-off the summer learning programs at Central Coosa. Information for the Summer Learning programs, transportation, and registration are on the attached flyer.

CES and CHS held luncheons to honor our two June retirees, Mrs. Luanne Adams and Mrs. Janet Carr.  It was an afternoon of laughter and tears as we shared memories of their careers.  Although we are sad to lose these two caring educators, we wish them well as they begin the next season in their lives.
Mrs. Adams Coosa County Schools journey began in 1998 when she was hired to work as a Special Education Aide at West Coosa Elementary in Weogufka where she was employed for four years. Mrs. Adams then transferred to Central High School in Hanover for one year. When the new elementary and middle School were completed for operation she transferred down the hill to the elementary school. The first year she worked as Special Education Bus Aide and Classroom Aide. The next year she began a journey with a student entering kindergarten and remained with him through each grade assisting him in regular education classrooms until he graduated in 2017. Mrs. Adams says, "My personal education was greatly enhanced through those high school years; I felt like I was in school again!" Mrs. Adams then returned to the middle school where she continued with the same group of girls into high school until she retired on June 1, 2021. Mrs. Adams says, "Many rewards came from working with these students. The love you have for each other and seeing them learn and progress in their lives is a wonderful experience! I thank God for my 23 years spent in the Coosa County School system. I will always hold all of the students and co-workers (FAMILY) close in my heart for the rest of my life. I love you all!"
 
The Central High School cheerleading squad, along with their sponsor, Mrs. Bailey, have been attending UCA Cheer Camp at Auburn University this week. The camp provides the opportunity for the squad to showcase and learn new skills and routines as well as build friendships and memories.  In addition, the girls have an opportunity to explore college life by visiting and living on campus for a week. The squad, McKay Kelley, Meori Smith, Katie Meeks, Alissa Cosby, Kelsey McLaughlin, Brynli Mitchell, Tyneshia Strong, Danni Morgan, and Makenzie Paris pose for a picture after earning a Superior ribbon for Camp Cheer Evaluations.  Mrs. Bailey says, " We are having a blast, but we are definitely all tired and sore from all the hard work."
