Cooper Students Enjoy Favorite School Tradition – Bedtime Books
In March, Cooper Elementary School staff hosted their 13th annual Bedtime Books event - an evening of fun and family literacy. Pajama-clad students in kindergarten through third grade, parents, grandparents, and family friends attended the event.
Cooper principal, Larry Brahan, welcomed guests as they enjoyed milk and cookies followed by a story read by the evening’s guest speaker, Ruth Benedum, a retired Sheboygan Area School District and former Cooper teacher. Many children carried sleeping bags, blankets, and stuffed animals as they rotated among classrooms and listened to bedtime stories read by Cooper staff members.
The fourth and fifth grade students at Cooper School participated in an event affectionately named Bedtime Books 4.5. These students came to school and rotated between four different READING-THEMED physical activities in the gym. These activities were led by current Lakeland College Students. Each of the four activity lasted 15 minutes. Mr. Kevin Heber, Cooper School's Physical Education Teacher stated, "It's nice to see the positive energy from these future teachers. The Lakeland students had a blast!" Before Cooper's 4th & 5th grade students left they enjoyed cookies and milk in the cafeteria provided by the Cooper School PTO.
