Yearbook Committee Forming Now!

Yearbook Committee Forming Now!

Change is coming to the Cochise Yearbook – 
We’re looking for several people to help take over the yearbook. Our current yearbook coordinator has a 5th grader and will be off to Cocopah next year.
Help us design and build the next generation of Cochise Yearbooks!
Key skills/interests include: photography, scrapbooking, working with software, photo editing, strong organizational skills and graphics design are beneficial. But the best part is being around all the special kiddos here at Cochise!   
Please contact Craig Smith at (602) 751-7665 cell/text or

2017 Holiday Angel Program

AMAZON order give back to COCHISE


As APT President, I wanted to reach out to you during this holiday season to let you know about an incredible opportunity we all have to help raise money for Cochise without contributing an extra penny!!  I’ve been doing this for a while now and it’s FOR REAL!!!

Just by signing up and ordering through AmazonSmile,  I contributed $8.81 to Cochise without doing anything differently than I would normally do.  I know that may not seem like much but imagine if we all did it.   We could pay a Teacher Aide’s salary just because we like to shop…especially, during this holiday season.

So far this year, we have earned $79.76 for Cochise simply by ordering through AmazonSmile instead of Amazon.  How incredible is that!  There is still no shipping costs (for Prime members), the prices aren’t secretly higher, and there is nothing sneaky about it.  It’s so easy and it’s truly no different than if you were ordering through your regular Amazon account.  Please, please sign up to support Cochise through AmazonSmile. Click on this link and help pay for some truly amazing aides and other incredible benefits for our kids!


Thanks so much!

We would love to have parent helpers in our vegetable and butterfly gardens Tuesday mornings starting at 8:50. Come for ten minutes, come for an hour! Bring your hand pruners and gloves if you have them. If you don’t have anything, that is okay too.

We are also seeking artist-minded individuals to help create permanent signage. Please email Emily Bartle ( if this is something you might like to do but cannot make Tuesdays to chat.
