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.

An Important Message from Dr. Joseph Meloche, Superintendent of Schools
An Important Message from Dr. Joseph Meloche, Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Community Members,

I am having surgery on Monday, January 14th and will be out of the district for at least two months.

I have been going through a series of tests since September and I must have the Mitral Valve and the Aortic Valve in my heart replaced. During an open heart procedure two mechanical valves will replace the current valves.

The prognosis is positive and I am with a wonderful team of doctors and an excellent surgeon.

I will be completely out of touch with the district for a couple of weeks. During my absence, I have no doubt that the great work that goes on in each of the buildings will continue on a daily basis.

In my absence, CHPS community members should follow the normal chain of command regarding any questions or concerns. This means starting at the building level with your child's teacher, contacting your building principal if the concern is not resolved, and, if the concern still remains unresolved, contacting Assistant Superintendent Dr. Justin Smith at justsmith@chclc.org or (856) 429-5600 extension 4301.

All district business will continue as usual. Board of Education meetings and Board Committee meetings also will take place as scheduled.

I appreciate your positive thoughts, prayers and acts of kindness toward one another in my absence. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Sincerely,

Joseph Meloche

Superintendent, Cherry Hill Public Schools
