Cox Elementary Reading Kick-Off

As a way to get students excited about reading, Cox Elementary School held a reading kickoff led by third grade teachers and students.  Students were given a piece of tape for each book read.  They accumulated this tape over a month-long time period, leading up to the Reading Kickoff, and used the tape to “attach” Mr. Sumlin (third grade para) to the wall!   Members of the Packer football and cheerleading teams joined in the fun!

Colquitt County School System’s Telephones and Technology to Upgrade


Starting June 30, 2015, Colquitt County Schools will begin using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) for all incoming and outgoing calls.  Upgrading to this system will enable the district to save money over time.  Colquitt County School System administrators are using this opportunity to cut unnecessary phone numbers and streamline calls.  After June 30th, the general public will be greeted with an automated message that will allow them to either speak to a receptionist by dialing 0 who can transfer calls to staff members in the building.  Since many of the previous phone numbers will be eliminated, the public is encouraged to dial the main line of each location as indicated below.  Incoming calls after hours or during holidays will have the option of leaving a voicemail for the site receptionist.  Click here for full press release.
