Cooper Mountain Memo

Latest Updates

October 19, 2020

Dear Parents and Community of Cooper Mountain,

It was so wonderful to see so many families out for our parade last week. Seeing students and families in person gives us energy to keep moving forward in the world of CDL. I hope everyone got to see Cooper and Timber Joey as well!

As we enter week six of student learning, we would like to send you a huge thank you. We know we could not be doing this work without your support. If you have any questions/needs, please reach out so we can help!

As always, continue to reach out with any questions or concerns. Have a wonderful week.

With gratitude,


Ali Montelongo

Parent Survey on Fifth Grade Funding Allotment

2020 has posed many new challenges that the Cooper Mountain Elementary community continues to overcome. A key challenge in front of us is the 5th grade’s limited ability to fundraise this year to cover yearbook and end of year party/gift costs. The Student Store and the annual pizza & bowling party have been the 5th Grades main source of fundraising. With the current state of affairs both of these sources of income have been eliminated. Please see the link below to see a proposal from the PTO and for your opportunity to vote on this proposal. Thank you.

Dining For $ is This Tuesday!!

It will be at CHIPOTLE located at 14795 SW Murray Scholls Dr Ste 112 on Tuesday, October 20th. Please join us for this great fundraiser for our school. Chipotle will generously donate 33% to our school. Be sure to bring in the flyer, show it on your Smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting Cooper Mountain Elementary. Online orders count too!
