World Heritage Night – All are invited!

Cooper Middle School’s World Heritage Night is coming soon – March 28, 2019 – and it promises to be the best one yet. We will be sharing food from different countries, watching presentations from our language students, and topping off the night with international performances.

It’s a big event and will need a lot of volunteer help from our parent community to make it work. There’s a lot to do, so your participation is vital to making the evening spectacular.  Here’s where we need you:
