Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer.
I’m excited about the upcoming year–we’ve got new teachers, new students, a new foreign language quad on campus, and several new PTO projects.
What’s New with the Cooper PTO
Over the summer, we updated our website and created new committees to enhance our parent outreach and online presence. With these new initiatives, we hope to expand our parent resources to include more helpful links, access to our meeting minutes, and even some podcasts you can download and listen to at your convenience. Finally, we plan to begin streaming our monthly PTO meetings on Facebook in order to make it easier for you to listen in even when you can’t attend in person.
Even with all the exciting new changes, however, we haven’t lost sight of our primary mission: we remain committed to our role as an open, collaborative, supportive link between the parent community and the teachers and staff at Cooper by:
- Offering relevant, topical parenting programming throughout the school year;
- Providing financial support to the school to help fund technology upgrades, student enrichment, and staff development.
But without your help, we can’t do these things.
