Staff Spotlight

We are so happy to have Ms. Doherty at Lubbock-Cooper North Elementary! She is our Communities in Schools Coordinator. Her job is to help students any way she can. One way is through the Pirate Pantry. The Pirate Pantry consists of clothes, food, and other supplies that our students may need. Ms. Doherty also mentors numerous students. She absolutely loves our students and is willing to do anything she can to help.

Pirate Pantry

The Pirate Pantry is in need of restocking. We will have bins available in the foyer of the school for donations. We need snack foods like Cheez-Its, fruit snacks, small cans of fruit, and any other item that is easy to eat. We can also use easy-to-make foods like mac and cheese, Cup of Noodles, and soup. Thank you for your continued support of the Pirate Pantry!
