    Welcome Cougar Scholars and Families! I am Dr. Nicole Nearor and I’m thrilled to start my 2nd year as your proud Principal. This will be the start of my 27th year as an educator! I am full of joy to meet all our Cougar scholars on the first day of school!

    This year we will continue with our vision to Believe. Build. Bloom. as we continue to ensure The Cougar Standard of Excellence. Excellence will be our Cougar Habit! We need our Cougar alumni, families, and community to be a part of Cougar Nation through this journey. Please join us as a member of our School Advisory Forum (SAF), School Advisory Committee (SAC), and community volunteer. Our SAF and SAC meetings are the first Thursday of every month at 3:00 PM. The first SAF and SAC meeting is Thursday, September 7, 2023.

    There is some exciting news for Cougar Nation! During the summer, the SMART project began construction of the upgrades to our auditorium, media center, now known as the Cougar Innovative Learning Commons, and four classrooms. Our Cougar Innovative Learning Commons is complete along with the four classrooms. We have welcomed five, highly experienced International Exchange Teachers to our Cougar Family. And finally, we have two new Assistant Principals, Mrs. Miderland Delance, and Mr. Daniel Lechtman. Our new Cougar Administrative Team is the absolute best!

    Our number one priority will always be the safety and security of our Cougar scholars and staff. All Cougar scholars are required to wear a Coconut Creek High school ID at all times on their person. All Cougar staff are required to visibly wear a Coconut Creek High or BCPS ID at all times. All visitors and vendors are required to report to the Single-Point Entry (SPE) gate and SPE entrance to gain access to the school and visibly wear the SPE badge or vendor badge at all times.

    Thank you for entrusting us with your scholars! Academically, there is a lot of work to be done. Our goal is to make consistent, daily progress throughout the process to "Restore the Roar!"
