Conley Elementary students now have a mascot to call their own.

The Chandler school has always used the nickname “coyote” but never had a mascot to go with it.

But thanks to Chandler-Gilbert Community College, the void was filed.

The college “retired” its mascot, Cody the Coyote, and handed the costume over to Conley.

In its place at the college, students can now rally around Cody the Coyote 2.0 – who was recently unveiled during Chandler-Gilbert Community’s Welcome Week.

Conley students were introduced to their new mascot at an assembly honoring those with perfect attendance and most improved attendance. 

“Conley Elementary plans to use the mascot to encourage kindness, positive attitudes and excellence in academic performance,” a school spokesman said.

Chandler-Gilbert Associate Vice President of Community Relations Jenna Kahl spearheaded the effort to donate the mascot outfit.

“We are thrilled to gift our former Cody the Coyote mascot to such a deserving school,” said Jenna. “As a community college, we take great pride in giving back to the cities and towns we serve. Collaborations like these help us forge strong relationships with local school districts and community partners. We hope Conley Elementary students enjoy their new mascot for years to come.”

Conley Elementary Dean of Students Genisha Wright led the assembly, which was attended by all students and teachers, as well as Chandler Unified School District Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Frank Narducci.

“It is such an honor to receive the gift of Cody the Coyote from Chandler-Gilbert Community College,” said Genisha. “Cody the Coyote has such an important new role at our school, which is to promote positive behaviors and a welcoming environment at our campus, support 2nd step initiatives, attendance, play works, school events and fundraisers. Our students deserve a safe and fun learning environment and I know our new coyote mascot will serve that purpose as he motivates our students to be their best.”

Cody the Coyote 2.0 can be seen at future community and Chandler-Gilbert athletic and student life events.
