School Supplies: The following items are suggested school supplies for this year: Sturdy backpack, 2” binder, binder paper, pens, pencils (No. 2), highlighters, glue sticks, and a ruler. Individual instructors may suggest additional materials.
The Cooley Student Handbook: This important publication is included In the Cooley Planner. “The Handbook Test” will be given to every student the first week of school, and this test is to be completed – Open Handbook! – and returned to Second Period by Friday, August 26th. We encourage students and parents to complete the test together. Other activities are planned to help students understand school expectations as well.
Just Read! Many times each week, parents ask, “What can I do to help my son/daughter do better in school?” There is no greater support that you can give your child, besides love, of course, than encouraging them to read, read, read. Reading just 20 minutes each night will greatly increase your student’s abilities in both academic classes throughout the year and on the STAR (Standardized Testing and Reporting) test that each student will take this May.
