That money can go a long way to help the animals that we love.

The Cooper School had a lovely time at our annual event, Pass it On. Brave poets put on their fancy clothes, gathered their gumption and shared their beautiful poems to a large and loving audience. Students and teachers were thrilled to hear their friends and siblings share their hard work. We are so proud of all of the hard work that Kindergarten poets put into their poetry writing

On Friday, Kindergarteners were tickled pink to share all their beautiful work and knowledge with their parents and families. Kindergarteners worked hard on creating art,
