Cooper Elementary is a friendly neighborhood school that is committed to establishing a safe, respectful, and responsible learning environment. Every day, you can see students walking and riding their bikes and scooters to and from school. Cooper is a traditional elementary school that has a strong record of student success with solid academic performance on state standardized tests.
The staff at Cooper Elementary School is very dedicated and many have worked at Cooper for more than five years. Over 75% of teachers have earned a Master’s Degree or higher and many teachers continue their professional growth by taking classes on the newest trends in education.
Cooper Elementary School hosts many special events. A student and parent favorite is Cooper’s annual Costume Walk. The Costume Walk allows for many great photo opportunities. The staff members organize a family Thanksgiving every November where they serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal to students and their families. They also host a beloved event called Bedtime Books, where the students come back to school one evening in pajamas to hear the staff members read bedtime stories and enjoy milk and cookies. A fun Talent Show performed by students concludes each school year.
Cooper classrooms have SmartBoards, computers, document cameras, and access to iPads and iPad Minis to assist our students in the mastery of Wisconsin State Standards. Students also benefit from interaction with other students outside their classrooms through the school’s Reading Buddies initiative that pairs younger and older students together to read.
Students at Cooper Elementary School can take part in co-curricular activities such as Student Council, Above the Influence, Running club and Robotics club. Parents can get involved through the school’s Parent-Teacher Organization, which organizes family fun nights and several fundraisers to benefit the students throughout the school year. Cooper students are also able to enjoy breakfast in their classrooms each day starting at 8:00 which is free to everyone!
