Happy First Day of School Cooper Families!

We had a wonderful first day of school as our Cooper Leaders met their teachers, reunited with old friends, made new friends, explored the “new” Cooper, and learned their expectations as a student in a Leader in Me school.

On behalf of the Cooper staff, thank you so much for all of your flexibility, patience, and understanding as we underwent a major building renovation this summer. Cooper is the oldest building in the district and required extensive renovation. The first day Cooper staff were allowed in the building was the evening of Wednesday, August 27. Cooper teachers only had one workday to set up their classrooms. When they came in last Thursday, there were a number of electricians, painters, movers, and custodial staff still working in the building. Teachers tried to set up classrooms around hanging wires and freshly painted walls. Many of the teachers came in over the holiday weekend to complete their final preparations. We have the best staff in the district and commend all of the hard work our wonderful Cooper teachers have put in for the arrival of our students.

Bond workers will continue to finish up work throughout the month of September. Due to the continued work, Cooper’s Open House and Curriculum Nights will be held in October. We will welcome fifth grade families on Monday, October 13th and sixth grade families on Monday, October 20th. We always welcome parent questions and visitors, however, it is best to set up visits with teachers prior to your arrival. Please stop in at the office to sign in and receive a visitor pass. Mr. Taylor and Mrs. Aherne are available for questions, tours, etc. and can be reached by phone or email.

We look forward to a great year of Learning & Leading together!
