Principal Monday Message

Hello Coopertown Families. Today is June 1st, this is Ms. Mastrocola and this is your Monday Message.

Coopertown is our community and our home.  It is where many of us feel safe and protected.  We are not together right now in the building, but we are still together in spirit and in thoughts.  There may be many heavy hearts with regard to the state of our country, cities, and communities right now.  One thing we can provide each other within our own homes and neighborhoods is kindness.  Despite any differences we might have kindness prevails.  We know how important it is to show our classmates kindness.  Coopertown students, I am asking each of you to show this kindness at home right now as well- with your family,  your siblings, your next door neighbor.  It is a good time to show each other how much we love one another and appreciate each other.  I appreciate all of you and the support I know we will show each member of our Coopertown community today and always.

Parents, Mrs. Woodworth and the guidance counselors across the district are gathering resources to share with parents on talking to your children about the recent events in our country.  Look for information from Mrs. Woodworth on her website.


Our 4th and 5th grade Reading Olympics event happened last Thursday night virtually.  Mrs. Fastuca organized an amazing event with the help of Mrs. Livi, Mrs. Markland, Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. O’Brien.  The teachers hosted the question and answer sessions where the teams were asked 60 questions about a list of books they had read.  The students were absolutely amazing!  We all had a blast!  Thank you also to Kate Thompson and Colleen Strezlec, our PTO presidents,  who continue to support everything we do- and by setting up the Zoom Ceremony.  I hope all students at Coopertown try the Reading Olympics at least once in either 4th or 5th grade. 


5th Grade Parents-  this Friday is our Moving Up Ceremony at 11:00 AM and our 5th Grade Parade at Cooperotwn at 2:00 PM. The Zoom information to join the Ceremony and the directions for the parade will be sent to you in an email tomorrow morning.  Please review the details and email your homeroom teachers with any questions. 


Summer birthdays will be celebrated a little differently this year.  I will continue to make weekly videos throughout the summer and send them to you every Friday afternoon.  This way we can stay connected throughout the summer.  I am a summer birthday myself and I think this is the best way to celebrate our June, July and August birthday kids!


Have a wonderful evening!
