What's Happening at Coopertown

  • Reading Incentive at Coopertown

    This year we celebrate reading at Coopertown with a school wide reading incentive. This year the theme is READING IS AWESOME!! Our readers will earn a Lego for each 15 minutes they read a night. Each class will construct a masterpiece with the Lego’s collected from the readers. We kicked off the beginning of the incentive on May 21 with a skit and dance to “Everything Is Awesome”. The Coopertown staff was led by Kim Bohrer as they danced in sync to the Lego song. Students read every night recording their progress on a reading log. The incentive will end on May 28th. Hopefully, the reading “habit” will continue throughout the year.

  • Coopertown Elementary School's Playground to Plate

    Students are excited about growing vegetables at Coopertown Elementary School! This learning opportunity was made possible thanks to a grant from the Haverford Township School District Education Foundation. In June 2014, Coopertown School’s counselor, Marisa Woodworth was awarded this $1,000.00 mini-grant that allowed the school to bring an indoor, vertical gardening system into the lobby in March. The garden provides an opportunity for students to become aware of a unique method of food production and the benefits of healthy eating. By operating on a timed grow light and water pump system, this hydroponic garden is able to produce a bounty of fresh, high-quality produce that is growing right before the students’ eyes! Currently kale, basil, sage, dill, chives, scallions, arugula, cilantro, spinach and variety of lettuces of other lettuces are growing at the school. This project has increased students’ interest in eating healthy food and vegetables. As students watch this delicious produce grow right inside their school, they now have a greater awareness of the elements of a healthy diet. The garden will continue to be incorporated into the learning environment by helping students identify the need for healthy food choices, the importance of eating “living food” to stay healthy and grow strong, and the global necessity to reduce the carbon footprint.

  • College Shirt Day

    Coopertown Elementary School is taking a personal approach to inspire students to become excited about a future that can include college and to help meet the standard of supporting every student to realize his or her maximum potential. Goal setting was recently discussed in Guidance class. Students learned how goal setting can be applied to academics, college, career planning and other life decisions. On Friday, May 29, staff members and students are encouraged to wear college T-shirts. On this day, staff members’ experiences in school, job training and college will be highlighted during classroom discussions. The process of deciding on something one wants, planning how to get it and working toward that objective is a valuable life skill. We are committed to strengthening students’ analytical, problem solving, communication, interpersonal and technological skills to help them meet goals and to prepare them for competition in the future workforce.

  • Healthy Tips to Remember

    How to Stay Healthy: Eat a balanced diet, don't skip breakfast. We all need fuel from our food to keep our immune systems charged up! Drink plenty of water! Get at least 10 hours of sleep every night! Yes, 10 hours! Our growing students need this rest to do their best in school every day. Exercise at least one hour every day! Get out there...get some fresh air! Wash Your Hands! Wash hands before you eat, after using the bathroom, after sneezing, coughing and blowing your nose. When to Stay Home: If you have a Temperature of 100 degrees or above, Vomiting and or Diarrhea. Stay home for 24 hours after the last sympton occurs....without the aide of medication. This gives us time for our bodies to recover and it also prevents the spread of illness.
