T.S. Cooley Elementary Weekly News

August 22, 2022


Our annual fall fundraiser kicks off today. Students will be going home with packets. This is our major fundraiser for this school year to assist with our general operating budget and PTO sponsored activities that help in all areas of our school.

We are once again offering a donation option to earn school incentives for those that do not wish to participate in catalog sales. Details about our school incentives are included in the packets. Please take note of the donation details for families with multiple students enrolled in our school.

Our school-wide goal has been set to sell 1,400 items. If this goal is met, our students will enjoy an awesome carnival celebration. Please know that your generosity and dedication to our school are appreciated.

Emily Alcock, Principal
T.S. Cooley Elementary Magnet School

We are happy to host Parent Night meetings on campus this year. Classrooms will be open from 5:30 - 6:00 for those that want to see their child's classroom. Everyone will gather in the cafeteria at 6:00 for a few announcements from Mrs. Alcock. Homeroom teachers will then share information specific to their grade level.

The information shared at Parent Night is geared for parents. Students that are attending should bring a book or activity to keep them occupied during the meeting.


We will be hosting Grandparent Day celebrations for each grade level. Programs will begin at 8:30 and will include a small presentation on stage followed by breakfast with our guests. A photo station will be available for $5 per picture.
