Farewell Mr. Couture

Farewell Mr. Couture

Emma Kendrick, Reporter

As most students know, Cody Middle School’s Assistant Principal Patrick Couture is leaving on April 7th. Couture said, “I would say just seeing the students grow from coming at sixth (kind of still as an elementary student) and walking out the doors at the end of eighth as a young adult, ready for high school.” He worked at CMS for six years and helped improve our school a lot.  When asked about his favorite memories, he responded, “The dress-up days and Halloween extravaganzas. Being pummeled by 400 students with water balloons is definitely a memory, not sure if it’s my favorite though.” Will Couture ever return to an education job? “At this point, this will be 18 years (13 as a middle school VP) so I would like to try something new. Who knows, I may get back, but we always encourage kids to try new things so I also want to do that.” He was great for CMS and will be missed by all the students and staff here.
