Coopertown Fifth Graders learned about the colonial system of barter by trading some treasures of their own. The students were able to trade their goods using the same keen negotiating skills and persuasive techniques that would have been used when bartering was a way of life. They learned the difficulties of making a fair trade and had fun in the process.
This year Coopertown and our PTO are partnering with Community Family Support Services to help over 300 local families in need of assistance during the holiday season. The goal is to help provide these families with a home cooked dinner for Thanksgiving.
First graders built First Street Plymouth in their classrooms. They were given a plot of land and signed a deed to build a house and develop the land. Each student built a house, garden, and fire on their land. Next, students will learn about the jobs of Pilgrim boys and girls.

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.
