“We want to congratulate both Alto Park Elementary and Coosa High on their recent recognition,” stated superintendent Dr. Glenn White. “This is a true testament to the dedication and hard work of the administrators, teachers, students, parents and all stakeholders in the community. Great things are happening at APES and CHS and all around FCS, and we are so proud of their accomplishments. Congratulations, again, to Alto Park and Coosa High. Keep doing great things!”
