Students gathered descriptive details and similes about “mother’s hands”, which they used to write a descriptive paragraph. The students “hand” printed their flowers, and painted on a bow. The finished work was given as a holiday gift to their moms. Please klick on title to view slide show
5th grade students read And Then What Happened Paul Revere? by Jean Fritz in their language arts class. They found evidence of the author’s purpose from the text and used it to create their own depiction of Paul Revere. Using an augmented reality app, Chromville, students were able to make Paul Revere jump off the page. Some of them even figured out how to take ‘selfies’ with their 3D creations.

Back in October, Coopertown Elementary School was approached by Children and Youth Services of Delaware County to support in the Adopt A Family Program. Coopertown Elementary School and several individual homerooms immediately committed to participating. Coopertown's School Counselor, Marisa Woodworth, responded to the CYS Holiday Program Coordinator, Donna Hollis. The two collaborated and agreed on helping 15 families in need. Each family generated a holiday wish list and provided it to the school via a CYS case manager. Coopertown staff, parents and students have been feverishly shopping to check hot items off the wish lists. Close to 100 beautifully wrapped presents have already been donated! A representative from the organization will collect the donated items on Friday, December 19. As a school community, we are proud to bring joy to children in need during this time of year.
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.
