Marco's Pizza Night

Once again Copopa is entering into the Marco's Pizza Night School Challenge! By entering we have the chance to win prizes ranging from a class pizza party up to $5000 for the school and a school wide pizza party.


There are a couple of ways to help us out!

1.Order online ANY day or time during the school year and we can earn Pizza Points.

2.Walk in or Call in orders on the designated Marco's Pizza Nights will also earn us points!


Marco's Pizza offers these School Nights and they give back a percentage of sales generated from those nights that are called in on the phone or placed in the store. They give EVEN MORE for orders placed ONLINE! All orders online will be counted in the year long Online Challenge. They also award a free pizza party each month to the classroom with the most orders!


This works for either the Strongsville or Berea location! Be sure to enter our school name when placing your order! Our designated day is Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020. But remember that we can earn points ANY day of the year if you order online and enter our school name!

3rd graders who went above and beyond by trying the Optional Enrichment Project of making a display that represented multiplication and division. Way to go Raiders!!

Breakfast with a Buddy

We are once again hosting Breakfast With A Buddy for Copopa Elementary School and Columbia Middle School. This is a time when a grown up "buddy" (parent, grandparent, neighbor, aunt, uncle, etc.) can come to school to have breakfast with a student, and, if they would like, take a small tour of the school. This gives all students a chance to "show off" their school to loved ones, and allows all children to enjoy time with a grown up in their lives. We would love for you to join us, an invitation will be coming home soon, please don't forget to RSVP! We look forward to seeing you!

Steam Club News

We are in our third year of offering an after-school STEAM Club to third and fourth graders. Our first session had 20 students and we had a great time with projects such as creating animation on Scratch Jr, tinkering with LittleBits and Cubelets and building newspaper towers that a student could sit under.

Our second session is under way with 20 students and we started out out building a zip line that could carry a Beany Baby to safety. The students love the challenge of designing and creating.
