The Cooper School Daily

Week of May 22nd

We can hardly believe that summer vacation is just one week away! This week we wrapped up our Author Study and celebrated an amazing year with a fun-filled Spirit Week. Read on to hear all about the exciting events this week in First Grade.

Author Expert Presentation

On Monday, we welcomed TCS families to campus for our author expert presentation. Students dressed as either characters from their author’s books or the authors themselves to share the stories they wrote and their posters! We loved celebrating all our students have learned and accomplished through this amazing research project. 

Author Visit

On Tuesday, our students were visited by local author and illustrator Jonathan Miller! Jonathan Miller is known for his elaborate collage work which he utilizes to illustrate his The Adventures of Sammy the Wonder Dachshund books. If you would like to learn more about Jonathan Miller and his creative work you can access his website here.

Spirit Week

We loved celebrating TCS Spirit Week with a whole week of dress down days! On Monday, students went all out with their favorite colors for Color Day. On Tuesday, students represented their favorite sports teams, animals, performing artists and more for Fan Day! On Wednesday, students dressed in their wackiest outfits for Wacky Tacky Wednesday and on Thursday students rocked their silliest hats for Hat Day. We loved celebrating our First Graders and all of the amazing memories we have made this year through this fun-filled Spirit Week!
