By keeping the lines of communication open between Cooper families and staff members, students are able to rely on a strong support network. Parents are encouraged to visit their child’s classroom and volunteer to assist teachers with school activities. By attending events at Cooper, parents take an active role in their child’s education and show their support in helping their child achieve academically, socially and emotionally.
The Cooper PTO brings together parents, staff and community members to support learning and high achievement for all Cooper students. The PTO organizes social and learning activities for students and families and coordinates fundraising projects to support classroom and school activities. All parents are invited to join the PTO and take part in making decisions regarding their child’s education at Cooper. By planning special events and projects, the PTO plays a strong role in building a strong sense of community within Cooper. For more information, or to join the PTO, please contact Cooper’s school office at (414) 304-6300.
School Governance Council
The School Governance Council works with the principal as an advisory body to discuss and improve school policies, curriculum, educational plan goals and the budget. Members of the council include parents, staff members and community representatives. Council participation is voluntary through a school-based election process, which occurs during the month of May. For more information, or to get involved in the School Governance Council, please contact Cooper’s school office at (414) 304-6300.
Tuesday Folders/School-Home Communication
Tuesday Folders, sent home weekly, are used for school-related communication. Parents are reminded to check these folders for important information regarding upcoming events and school policies. Families with more than one child at Cooper can expect schoolwide information to come home in the Tuesday folder of the youngest student.
