I'm excited to be starting my 5th year as the Principal at Cooks! Each year has been a wonderful, unique experience, and I can't wait to go through this year's journey with you!
We have a few new staff members joining us this year:
Mrs. Crowley- Food Service
Mrs. Humpfer- 5th Grade Teacher
Mrs. Bock- Kindergarten Aide
Mrs. Hinton- Instructional Aide
Mrs. Campbell- Instructional Aide
Miss Dunlop- 4th Grade Teacher (while Mrs. Warren is on Maternity leave)
Mrs. Riegle- Music Teacher at Cooks & Flint Lake
Mrs. Martinez- Secretary/Treasurer
Mrs. Morrey- Social Worker
Daisy- Therapy Dog
Please help us welcome them when you see them!
Our theme this year is derived from my expectations for all staff: Build relationships with students, have high expectations for all, and to have fun! We want school to be a place where children feel safe and want to learn!
Here's to another great year!!
Please note that all cars entering the car dismissal line should enter the parking lot from the Campbell Street entrance only. Please be courteous to our buses and allow them priority when entering the parking lot. Once you have entered the parking lot, proceed to take your place in one of the double lines that will form at the back side of the parking lot parallel to Campbell Street. Once you have pulled forward to where the double line merges into one line, please take turns pulling your car forward to the front entrance of the school. Your child will be sent to your car and must enter the car on the curb side only. Please do not get out of your car to help your child. We want to keep everyone safe at all times!!
Anytime your child will be a car rider, please notify your child’s teacher and the school office via a note sent to school that morning with your child, or by emailing your child’s teacher AND Mrs. Martinez (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the office before 11:00am. This ensures that your message is being seen since our teachers are busy teaching during the day and don’t always have time to check their emails.
If you need an additional last name card, please notify Mrs. Martinez in the office. Thank you for your cooperation with our afterschool dismissal procedures. Our number one priority is to keep everyone safe!

Purchasing Agendas & Paying Book Rental
If your child is in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade they will need to purchase an agenda. To do this, please send $3 in an envelope with your child's name written on the front to be turned in to the teacher. We will fill the orders in the office. Thank you!
Fees have not been assigned in Skyward, therefore we are unable to accept any payments. We will let you know when those are updated! Thank you for your patience!

Food Guidelines Reminders
Our Wellness Policy gives us leverage to do different things in different buildings based on
need. That being said, here are some guidelines for Wellness and Healthy Eating in our school.
We have quite a few children with potentially SEVERE allergies which we have taken into consideration in the development of this list.
Birthdays are fun to celebrate! If your child chooses to bring a treat, only NON-FOOD items are allowed.
Examples of non-food goodies: Pencils, Books, Erasers, Magnets, Crayons, or a class donation
Birthday Book…Your child can be honored with his/her name inside a book donated to your child’s classroom or the CCEL library!
We allow two parties a year, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. The same policy exists as with birthdays; only NON-FOOD items are to be brought in.
FOOD AS A TEACHING TOOL:
If an occasional teacher wants to do a math/reading project using food it MUST BE APPROVED by the principal and checked by the nurse plenty of time before the project. All food will ONLY BE EATEN IN THE CAFETERIA. Hands MUST be washed before returning to class.
PTO SPONSORED AFTER SCHOOL EVENTS:
If a snack is deemed necessary it must be provided by the parent, who must be present while the food is being eaten. All food will ONLY BE EATEN IN THE CAFETERIA. Hands MUST be washed after eating/handling any food and before going anywhere else in the building.
