Sunday, June 13, 2021  —  Over 270 awesome Coe Cougars, families, teachers and staff jogged/walked/ran the “Hurray to Murray” 5k around Queen Anne’s crown throughout five waves.  They were joined by retiring Principal Turner and incoming Principal Backstrom, all in the spirit of fun and to honor Mr. Murray retirement after 25 years at Coe!
