The John Cooper School community is committed to outreach throughout the year. During the holiday “season of giving” students, faculty and families have participated in several opportunities to assist others.
In November, third grade teachers and students partnered with the Interfaith of The Woodlands Food Pantry to collect canned goods. The drive on campus resulted in 1,331 pounds of food being donated. Members of Interfaith administrative team came to campus to thank our students.
Lower School students also collected 1,857 new and gently used books through a Book Drive for the Books Between Kids program that will enrich the lives of at-risk students in Houston.
Thanks to a Cooper December tradition, 187 children and senior citizens will enjoy a holiday gift through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. The annual effort on campus was spearheaded by the Lower and Middle School Student Councils whose members turned into elves when the time came to load up the Salvation Army trucks.
The John Cooper School is an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational, college preparatory day school. Our mission is to provide a challenging education in a caring environment to a diverse group of select students, enabling them to become critical and creative thinkers, effective communicators, responsible citizens and leaders, and lifetime learners.
