Student Lighthouse Leading the Way!

Wow!  Cooper students were inspired first thing this morning by some amazing speeches!  We had 52 students prepare and give students for the Student Lighthouse Team!  Not only were the speeches amazing but the audiences were wonderful as well.  We reviewed how we need to Seek First to Understand when watching others speak.  It takes a lot of bravery to stand up in front of peers and Find Your Voice.

Votes were cast this morning and the counting commenced!  Stay tuned for the announcement of our new Student Lighthouse Leaders!

Welcome Back!

Wow!  We have had a wonderful first two weeks of school!  This has been an extremely smooth start to the year.  That is due to the wonderful children you are sharing with us and the amazing Cooper staff who spent many hours preparing to welcome our Cooper leaders!

We have been working on building community over the last few weeks.  Classrooms have focused on community meetings and classroom and building expectations.  Mrs. Aherne and Mrs. Collyer have been doing classroom walk-throughs and spending time at lunch and recess getting to know all of our students.  We have spent LEAD time on Fridays holding special assemblies to review school rules, discussing leadership opportunities, and pumping our students up for an awesome year!

We truly believe in our mission of
"Everyone Learning,
Everyone Leading, 
All of us-students, staff, and parents-are learners and leaders at Cooper.  We are excited to begin this journey with you!
