Welcome Home Dad!!!

COOPERSVILLE, MI - Most youngsters love giving their dad a gift for Father's Day, but in the Molewyk family the tables were turned and dad Jeremy gave his kiddos the best gift of all . . . himself!  And in return Jeremy received the best Father's Day gift as well, the gift of all -his family! Jeremy, a Black Hawk Repair Technician with the National Guard 1-147th Assault Battalion returned home Friday after a 12-month tour in Tallil Iraq. Jeremy was a 1996 Unity Christian graduate.

2011 Coopersville High School Graduation

2011 Coopersville High School Graduation

COOPERSVILLE, MI - The 2011 Graduation Ceremony took place this week at Coopersville High School. Students marched in to Pomp and Circumstance, listened to speeches by fellow classmates, heard beautiful music from the High School choirs and band. Students were reminded of the challenging job market, and the tougher academic requirements to acheive success in that market, while parents, grandparents, family and friends looked on with glowing pride. Following graduation, graduates were treated to an all-night-long celebration facilitated by a parents committee. With all the tumultous talk of shrinking budgets for schools, graduation is a great way of focusing on the important goals of education. Congratulations to all of these students that persevered to achieve this accomplishment. Best wishes in all that you do!

Small Town America - It's What They are Fighting For

COOPERSVILLE, MI - Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness is right in the heart of small town America. The friendly neighbors, and good living with hospitality and charm ~ that's what our troops are fighting for. The freedons we enjoy everyday and celebrate on Memorial Day don't come without a price. Coopersville remembers these fallan comrades as it celebrates the holiday with a Boy Scout pancake breakfast, a parade, and a trip to Veterans Park for the laying of a memorial wreath, followed by a speech by Mayor Bush. No wonder people are beatin' the door down to get into the United States of America, It is still the best place on earth!

He Taught Me to Be a Mom

To make each student feel special, students in Mrs. Rosemary Grimes' classroom are highlighted as "Student of the Week" sometime during the course of the school year. Students are asked to bring in pictures of themselves and tell "their" story. Parents are asked to write a note to their child as well. Below is the note written to Edgar Perez-Garcia by his mom Olga. It brings to light the reason we celebrate Mother's Day and the very special bond between mother and Child.
