RSVP for Course/Program Informational Meeting
One of our priorities is to make sure that our students are aware of the options they have within their education. Do you know what academic options are available for your middle & high school aged children? Please come and listen to KPBSD’s Career and Technical Education Coordinator, Annaleah Karron. She will travel to Hope School and share information about JumpStart, Middle College, Educators Rising, other university partnerships, and possible career pathways courses that we may not be aware of. We urge you to attend and aren’t above bribing you with food. COOPER LANDING & MOOSE PASS STUDENTS & PARENTS ARE WELCOME ALSO. RSVP required, so click here to reserve your space. See you there!

Cooper Landing School Updates
Mark your calendars! We are bringing back the Christmas Performance on Thursday, December 8 followed by a potluck. We are also planning a raffle for that evening to raise money for the students' ski lessons at Alyeska. Parents are soliciting donations/prizes from local businesses and community members. If you or your business are able to donate, we would very much appreciate your support. Items can be dropped off at the school or we can arrange to pick them up. Thank you so much!
We are now taking orders for the annual Christmas Swag fundraiser! Please email email@example.com or call the school at 907-595-1244 to place your order. The swags will be ready just before Thanksgiving.
This Friday, November 11 is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 1:45.
