Welcoming Students and Their Families To Cooper Middle School

Optional Cooper Pathfinder sessions will take place on Monday, August 5th and Tuesday, August 6th. Each session for students and their families will be identical. Please only attend one session. All students must be accompanied by an adult (parent/guardian/carpool), this is not a drop-off event.

Who: All rising 7th-grade students and 8th-grade students new to Cooper for the 2024-2025 school year, along with an adult. 

What: Cooper Pathfinder, an overview intended for both students and their families to ease the transition from elementary to middle school. 

  • Students will become familiar with Cooper and get to know the building better, meet a few of our staff, meet current 8th-grade student ambassadors, begin to build relationships with peers, and learn more about “life at Cooper”.  Please note that due to the arrival of new Chromebooks this year, students will no longer pick up their laptops at the conclusion of Cooper Pathfinder and will instead receive them during school the first week.
  • Parents will have the opportunity to hear from our administration and PTO. They will provide an overview of our school, expected adolescent changes, tips for navigating SIS and Schoology, student self-advocacy, and the use of technology across school and home settings. 

When: Registration links to sign your child up for a Cooper Pathfinder session are posted on Cooper’s website and located HERE. Each session is identical. Space is limited. All students must be accompanied by an adult (parent/guardian/carpool). One adult may bring multiple students as needed.

Where: Cooper Middle School. Not able to attend our in-person Cooper Pathfinder? No problem! In addition to the optional in-person Cooper Pathfinder, all students will have access to virtual learning opportunities during the summer to help them prepare for the transition to middle school. The virtual Cooper Pathfinder program will be posted on Cooper’s website. *Coming Soon!*

How: Each attending child must have a separate registration completed. Once you have successfully registered your child, you will receive an email confirming registration for the program. Please reach out to Sarah Reeser (@email) with any questions.
