Principals Message

Congratulations to our many competitive students this weekend! 7th grade girls basketball won the regional tournament. Several of our Cooper swimmers and divers placed at regionals or had best times, and our archery team came in 4th at regionals. Next weekend our MathCounts team competes at regionals, our dance team holds a showcase at school, and I'm feeling like I'm missing a few other folks that we'll catch up with next week.

At the end of this month we have optional student led conferences that we can host at school or we will teach your kids how to facilitate at home. This will be a great chance to hear them talk about their progress this year.

A reminder that we are off school on Monday, February 17th.
