Cooper Landing School Updates
Swags are ready to be picked up. Hours for pick-up are today until 3:30, Tuesday from noon to 3:30 and Wednesday from 9-3:30. Thank you all for your support!
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!
There will be no school on November 24 and 25 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Dates will be February 7, 14, 21, 28, and March 7 and 21.
On occasion, we may need help transporting students other than your own on field trips, as we do not have a bus. If you are willing to help out, a background check is required. Please go to https://kpbsd.org/departments/assistant-superintendent/instructional-services/hr/volunteer/ to complete the form. Thank you in advance!
Hope School Happenings
Hello Students and Parents,
MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS:
Recently we had a visit from Annaleah Karron. She is an amazingly helpful person with so much knowledge about education and programs such as CTE and Middle College. Middle and High School students can benefit so very much with these programs. We have links for you available here. We strongly encourage you to view the videos for the benefit of your students.
Here is the recording: https://www.loom.com/share/0b9eaff1cbc7477e95870fa3875c6e95
Hope’s PTO/Site Council meetings will be on the first Tuesday of each month from 3:45 – 4:30. Come join us!
If you have an appetite, we have some PIE!
PTO function at the Hope School is the news of the town. We have some amazing pie makers kicking in for the Hope Pie Auction which will be in person at the Hope School tomorrow. We are so excited to have the auction back. I know everyone can smell the sweet smell of the holiday pie season all the way to Kenai and back. Here is the information:
- Tuesday, November 22nd at 6:00 PM
- Hope School Gym will be the chosen location
- Dawn Hammond will be the honorable auctioneer for the evening event
Swag orders are estimated to be deliver prior to Christmas. We hope the shipping works out as planned. Mrs. Jeannine Jabaay would be the PTO person who will most likely be able to give us any updates on changes to the delivery date.
It’s time to think about appropriate weather gear already!
We care about your child’s health and comfort and want to take this opportunity to share a reminder. Children will play outdoors daily unless air quality poor or the temperature is below -10 (wind chill factor included). Please make sure your student has appropriate gear for outdoor play so they may participate fully.
- Snow: heavy coat, snow pants, snow boots, hat and mittens/gloves, etc.
Your Volunteer Status is key this year
We would really like each and every parent to come in and visit with their child this year, participate in field trips and help out. Please sign up to volunteer so you can come participate, help out, join in and make a difference.
Volunteers and Substitute Teachers
Hope School is always happy to have substitute teachers and volunteers. Opportunity is available for both positions currently. Please consider one or both positions https://www.applitrack.com/kpbsd/onlineapp/default.aspx?Category=Volunteer+Screening+Process
