Celebrating Women's History Month

As we conclude our celebration of Women's History Month I would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank all of the Amazing Women of Cooper School who inspire our Jaguars each and every day! Each of you plays such an important role in shaping young minds and helping our students to grow and learn. Thank you all for dedicating your talent, your time and your hearts to our students. YOU make a difference, and you are AMAZING role models!


Thank you to ALL who helped make this program a true SUCCESS this year! We could not have pulled this off without your support! Please see the attached message from Mrs. Yanell Joseph and the High School Mentors.

Time to Unwind

Whether you are traveling this week, or simply plan to take a break from it all, I wish each of you a wonderful Spring Break! Remember the importance of taking a break and disconnecting from work. At times this can be challenging, but is so beneficial for your overall health and ultimately helps you to be more effective when you return. Take a moment to read this brief article from, by Elizabeth Scott, which offers rationale and suggestions on How to Take a Break From Work (and why you need it).
