Compilation of Athletics, Clubs, and other Activities

Hello Cooper Community,

In this year of near constant upheaval, we have seen that connections have become more important than ever and the after-school program is no exception. We are currently letting the teachers finish getting re-acclimated to distance learning and getting acquainted with the new Schoology system while putting together a modified after school program for the students this year.

This year, at least for the foreseeable future, all programming will be online. Due to the ongoing COVID-19, crisis some clubs will not be available as they have been in the past and the rest will be heavily modified for online program delivery. The program will start online the week of September 21st. Please note that the activities list will be evolving as the year goes on and we hope to partner with other middle schools and community partners to provide more programming.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate these strange times, and as always, stay safe.

* The activity may have a set list of participants, such as a cast or team roster. 

Art Open Studio:  Come to work in our virtual-art space with other like-minded artists.  Share what you are doing to get feedback or not. This studio space is open to ALL types of visual arts, no art experience necessary and you do NOT have to currently be taking an art class either!  Enjoy the chill creative space with Miss Wright and other students.  Art club open studio is open to other teachers, parents, and administration.

Dance: This club will follow the interests of its members. Mr. Chambers has a Bachelor’s in Dance Education and can foster a meaningful club based on the ideas of his participants. We will run with our creativity!

Debate: Debate provides opportunities for students to collaborate, practice their public speaking skills, and structure arguments. Join us to discuss and debate topics ranging from the best sports to whether or not voting in Presidential elections should be mandatory.  

FCCLA: FCCLA stands for Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).  FCCLA is the national Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) students in the United States. At Cooper, FCCLA runs the school store (The Cooper Cart), sews pillowcases for Ryan's Case for Smiles, and helps with the Student Government activities. 

Homework Help:  Stop in to get help with the assignments that are giving you problems. Teachers will be on hand to assist.

Model UN:  Model UN is a club that replicates the international body, the United Nations. We discuss real-life topics that are affecting the world we live in from environmental concerns to developing technology to how to address a global pandemic. This club is for you if you enjoy current events, international relations, debate, discussion, and collaboration with others!

Scale Model Building: Like building grand things on a miniature scale? So does Mr. Holman! Come check out scale model building and see what this fascinating hobby is all about.

Science Olympiad: Do you love Science?  Do you like to learn about Science and work with teammates in a competitive environment?  Then Science Olympiad is for you.  Science Olympiad is a national competition, with competitions at the regional and state levels, that is designed to promote interest in science.  Teams compete in various events emphasizing problem-solving, knowledge, engineering, and understanding of science concepts.  

This year Science Olympiad will be virtual (at least to begin).  This is a yearlong commitment that requires the ability to attend virtual (and perhaps live later) tournaments all day on select Saturdays in December through March. 

STEAM: Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics… or as Mr. Frengel likes to call it, All of his hobbies. This club will be DIY based junk-drawer activities designed to teach you something in one of these fields.

Trick Shot Club: If you like Dude Perfect and you think that it's not bragging if you can actually do it, then we want you. Come do the impossible… or at least the highly improbable.

Writing Center: Teachers and fellow students will be available to aid you to learn to hone your writing craft and help with assignments
