PTA Updates:

Our Cooper PTA has been working hard behind the scenes to develop ways to keep our students and families connected. All activities have been modified to be consistent with current district and state guidelines and requirements. Please consider joining us for the first full membership meeting on September 22, 2020 at 6:30pm. A link to the virtual PTA meeting will be shared with the community prior to the meeting.

Announcements:

First Full Week of School- Today begins our first full week of the 2020-2021 school year. In our initial days we were able to navigate some technical difficulties and support families with gaining full access to virtual classes. We are so proud of our students' resilience as they begin their learning virtually, and we look forward to a successful week ahead.


Back to School Night- Our annual Back to School Night Event will take place in a virtual format this year. A separate message will be shared with families on Wednesday morning in preparation for the Back to School Night event. This message will include information on how to access the virtual classroom to hear from your child's teacher. It will also include a recording of our school-wide general assembly that you can view at a time which is convenient for you. The Back to School Night schedule is as follows:


Wednesday September 16, 2020

  • School-wide General Assembly: Pre-Recorded Video
  • 6:30pm -7:00pm: Classroom Session 1: All classroom teachers will conduct a live-streamed presentation followed by a Q & A session for families
  • 7:10pm-7:40pm: Encore Teachers and Student Support Teachers will be available for virtual visits
  • 7:45pm- 8:15pm: Classroom Session 2: All teachers will conduct a second live-streamed presentation followed by a Q & A session for families
