Leadership is Everywhere!

When you first walk through the doors of Cooper, you are greeted with welcoming messages and quotes on the walls that depict leadership and The 7 Habits, including displays that show how the habits are being integrated into the curriculum. You will also see students in various leadership roles: greeters, student lighthouse team members, library leaders, blog leaders, Rock Star Saver leaders, gym leaders, and photographers to name just a few. The last couple of months at Cooper have been filled with additional opportunities for our students to utilize and show off their leadership skills. We have had vocal and instrumental concerts, Seussical, Battle of the Books, various after school clubs, and students practicing for the Variety Show. On March 20th, Cooper students and staff were able to share what we are doing as a school to create a culture of leadership. The Leader in Me Symposium Series selected Cooper to be a part of their tour in which 94 educators from around the state came to see what we are doing to promote leadership and to learn from our students. The students did an amazing job and all of our guests were very complimentary! When given the opportunity, our Cooper kids really do shine and we are so proud of all of them! They are certainly living our school mission: Learning and Leading!

306 students on 47 teams participated in this year's Battle of the Books.
