Attendance Counts!

School attendance on time every day prepares your child for success in school and in life. It is so important that we are going to celebrate and reward good attendance for the rest of the school year. Unless your child is too sick to attend school, please make sure your child is at school on time every day!


Mr. McMillan and Mrs. Moorton, Cooper's Art Teachers, are in need of 5 parents to help hang up art work for the upcoming art fair on 5/14. Please email Mr. McMillan if you are interested in helping. Thank You!

The Spring Scholastic Book Fair is just around the corner!!

The Spring Book Fair will run from 8:30am - 3:30pm,
Monday, May 14 - Friday, May 18th,
Plus, the evening of Monday, May 14th from 6:00-7:30pm.
*The Late Night Sales will run in conjunction with our Art Show and Ice Cream Social. *

Students will be able to shop the fair during their scheduled Library Media Center (LMC) period during the week, and during their lunch and/or recess time as well.

The Scholastic Book Fair supports the Cooper Library Media Center, so when you shop at the Fair, you are directly supporting every child here at Cooper. The money raised at the Fair enables me to buy books, technology, supplies, and even furniture for our LMC, so your support makes a huge difference to our community!

Here are a few things to know or remember about the Book Fair:

  • I desperately need volunteers! If you’re able to volunteer, please sign up at my SignUpGenius page:
    **Make sure you’ve filled out an ICHAT form and have received clearance! In case you still need to fill out the ICHAT form, it can be found at:

  • Sales tax needs to be charged, so remember to calculate that 6% into any payments you send to school with your child;

  • If you send in a check with your student, please make it payable to:

  • The online fair will be running from Wednesday, May 9 - Wednesday, May 23. This fair has about FIVE TIMES as many things that our school fair will have!! Any items purchased through the online fair will be delivered to Cooper either during the middle of our fair, or after the online fair has wrapped up. Here’s the link:

Thank you in advance for your continued support; I can't wait to offer new materials to our readers! And just as a “heads up: ” our Fall 2018 fair will be the first full week of school in September, so expect another note soon!

Again, thank you so much!
