Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families

This week we welcomed some of our 6th grade students to the building for our Jump Start program. It was great to see and hear students in the building and we cannot wait to have all of our students in the building. More and more of our staff are coming back to the building and we are welcoming all of our staff back on Monday. We are looking forward to seeing our staff, our families, and our students soon!

In this week’s communication, we are sharing upcoming dates and information to include details about our orchestra program. Please review the information below and call our office with any questions.
