Did you know that your child could have big and little sisters and brothers at Coble?

Coble students are divided in to units called family groups. Each group has at least one member from every class. Then once a month for Friday assembly they break out and do "family" activities. It builds comrade among the different classes while getting to know each other. Some of the activities are like relay games, scavenger hunts as well as art projects. The 7th and 8th graders in each group lead out. It encourages leadership and mentoring skills in the older students. The younger students thrive on the attention from the older students and feel that they have a “big brother or sister” looking out for them. Check out the family tree posters in the school hallways most every year.
