Cooper Jaguars

Our mission is to teach all children to love learning, embrace challenges and strive to achieve their personal best. Our Cooper Community will demonstrate respect, ownership, acts of kindness and responsibility to encourage active citizenship.

All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.

J.F. Cooper Introduces Waste-Less Wednesdays!
J.F. Cooper Introduces Waste-Less Wednesdays!

Dear Parents/Guardians, Our Green Team is excited to introduce Waste-Less Wednesdays! We are kindly urging you to send your child(ren) to school with reusable containers that produce ZERO waste. A great way to begin this journey would be to make the promise to help your environment by using reusable water bottles in school. Lunch and snack items that fit nicely into reusable containers:

  • Sliced fruit
  • Cut up Vegetables
  • Sandwiches
  • Soup
  • Salad
  • All of your favorite snacks can fit nicely into a reusable container

Truly, the options are endless! So instead of going to the store and buying a case of water bottles and little sandwich baggies, make a one time purchase and start reusing! Not only will your participation in our Waste-Less Wednesdays program benefit our school, our local community, and beautiful planet, but it will also save you money in the long run! Please help us by sending in your child(ren) to school with as little waste as possible!

Thank You,

The Green Team and our Planet
