Mission Statement

  • 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."

    IMPORTANT REMINDER TO ALL PARENTS: Please be sure to have your children take the District's daily self assessment each morning before they leave for school. If they are experiencing two or more of the symptoms on Column “A” or one of the symptoms on Column “B”, or if they are awaiting COVID-19 test results, they must not report to school. This applies to all students, vaccinated or not. If you have additional questions regarding this matter, please contact your school nurse.

    A checklist that can be translated into more than 90 languages via our "Select Language" option at the top left corner of this website also is available. The updated checklist includes the latest guidance from the NJ Department of Health and is ideal for printing and hanging on your refrigerator, bulletin board, bathroom mirror or other prominent area at home.
