Coppin Dragon families

We are excited for the upcoming Family Bingo Night on 9/27. Our PTC is in need of family themed raffle basket items for each classroom.

Here's how one can help:

- A parent volunteer is needed for each class to compile and build a family themed raffle basket. Ensure a detailed list is attached to basket with an estimated amount the basket items are worth.

- Parents need to send donation items to class by 9/20 so the room parent can turn in completed baskets to PTC by 9/23.

- 9/23 baskets to be turned into the office with attention to Lindsey Graves.


All donations are tax deductible and feel free to contact Lindsey Graves for any questions at LindseyDGraves@gmail.com.

Parking & Drop Off

Please note that parking is at a premium, particularly now that we have so many new families who joined us this fall. If you are arriving early and waiting with your child in your car, please consider parking along the street to ensure our staff can find parking when they arrive.


It is essential that you pull all the way forward in the drop off lane so that we can get all of our cars/kiddos into the drop off zone and then out of their car in a safe and efficient manner. When there are no buses in the drop off area, please pull all the way forward. You may drop off in the bus area after the buses leave. This will create more room for everyone to move through safely.


Entering Campus

If you are walking your child onto campus and plan to go past the big, black gate, you must sign in at the front office and obtain a visitor badge to be on campus. Remember to sign out when you leave as well. This helps us to account for everyone that is on campus.

Food Service News

We've gotten lots of feedback from students and families regarding some changes in food services. Here is some info from our Food Service Director Christina Lawson:



A. WPUSD has started offering chocolate milk on Fridays only. Our Food Service department is really focused on bringing in lots of fruits and vegetables this year and reducing down the occurrence of items with added sugar.

B. Want to help shape the future of WPUSD food service offerings? We are looking for teachers, parents, community members that are interested in being on some panels/focus groups regarding food service selections and branding over the next year. Please reach out to Christina Lawson at clawson@wpusd.org if interested.


C. We are lucky to be able to feature lots of CA grown produce that is seasonal and fresh. All our offerings are all CA Grown at the moment including our carrots, lettuce, plums, peaches, oranges, zucchini, strawberries to name a few!
