The students of Cox Elementary came back to the 2018-19 school year with a big surprise: a brand new playground! To celebrate the new playground, students and their parents, along with stakeholders and members in the community were invited to a Picnic on the Playground event. Guests were treated to hotdogs and other refreshments. Many families enjoyed watching their children play on the new equipment, dance, and other outdoor activities. Great times were had by all in attendance.
Top row (L-R): Teachers Ashley Dean, Marcie Tadlock, Pamela Ferguson and others worked hard assembling hotdogs; Teacher of the Year Carissa McKinney posed with students, Tnyha Young and Ja’Riah Armster; Skylar Key and her brother Eric were the first students to enjoy the new slide. Middle row: The new playground with a swing set and slides was added over the course of the summer. Bottom (L-R): Teacher Heather Grantham enjoyed a nice swing with Skylar Key; Ka’den Huckaby and his little sister enjoyed the picnic refreshments; many students and their families enjoyed the much anticipated playground.
