The Cooper School Library welcomes students and staff to utilize our ever-growing and changing collection of reading and learning materials. All classrooms are scheduled for weekly visits to allow time for students to choose books for independent reading. During research units, students have access to a wide variety of books and online resources to assist in their discovery of new knowledge.
Mrs. Steady is the full-time library assistant and technology support person. Mrs. Minster is the librarian. They work together to encourage and support life-long reading habits, help students and staff locate materials in the library and online resources. Mrs. Minster, travels to three other libraries but can be reached by email anytime. She is at Cooper school every other week.
Student use of the internet at school is governed by the Acceptable Internet Use and Safety Policy 7450. This policy can be found within the Sheboygan Area School District policies.
Parents must give permission for their child to use the internet as a learning resource while at school. Permission is given by completing form 7540 - Elementary School Student Agreement and Permission Form for Internet Access.
