Principal Message

Hello Cooper Family and Friends,

HAPPY New Year!

It is with GREAT excitement that we are moving on to the second half of the school year together and in person! The year 2020 is in the past! Let's set our sights on to new friendships, new adventures, and new learning!


The first semester is one that will go down in the history books! Thank you parents and guardians for your diligence and support of our Cooper COVID-19 safety practices and the many adjustments you have done in your homes. With all your support, we have been able to stay in-person teaching the majority of the time. Let's continue this focus for a safe and healthy second semester!


I also would like to welcome the new families who are joining Cooper School this semester. Please reach out to me or your child's teacher if you have any questions or needs. We have an amazing staff!

Mrs. Jackey Syens

2nd Quarter Report Cards

Reports cards will be finalized on January 6th and sent home with students on January 8th. Grades will be available to be seen in Skyward on this date too. If you have any questions or need help accessing the electronic report card, please call or email your child's teacher or the school office.

Snowy & Cold Weather Winter Gear

The snow FINALLY fell which means the kids will be excited to play in the snow at recess! We want all our students warm and safe in the cold so I ask that you please send your child to school with snowpants, boots, a winter coat, hat and gloves. You may want to also send extra socks and a pair of pants in a Ziplock bag to keep at school. This way your child can easily change into dry clothing.


If your family is experiencing hardship and in need of winter gear, please reach out to me, your child's teacher, or our School Counselor, Mrs. Jenny Holle as we are happy to help and get you the items needed.

1st Semester Memories

Free Breakfast & Lunch For The Remainder of 2020-2021 School Year

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced their free meal programs will continue until June 30, 2021.

We encourage all students to take breakfast each morning as this can be used for their morning or afternoon snack. In addition, ALL students can receive FREE lunch!

Aramark is the district's food service provider. Students can choose from four delicious entrees each and every day in addition to many choices of fresh fruits and vegetables.

What a great opportunity for your child to try new and different foods and you not having the hassle of making lunch!
