ALERT: Sign up now for closing text alerts

(WZZM) - If you rely on text alerts to find out if your child's school is delayed or closed we have some important information to pass along to you.

As students graduate or move on to a new school, the text alerts become outdated, so we are starting fresh and need everyone to sign up again.

Click on this school closing link , enter your area code and phone number and then select the schools you want to receive alerts from.

Even if you have signed up for text alerts in the past, you need to register again.  We encourage you to do it now before winter weather moves in.

Coopersville City Manager’s Blog - Various Project Updates

Randall Street Reconstruction
The project is on schedule at this time. What has been done to date includes the removal of the existing pavement, the water main anode packs are installed, the storm sewer pipe is installed, the excavation for the new road bed is complete, and the sand sub-base is in place. This week some of the new concrete curb and gutter will begin and the last of the sand sub-base will be compacted. Next week work will begin on the gravel base, and some concrete work will begin on the road itself.
 
Randall Street Bridge
We have received several bids on replacing or repairing the sewer main suspended along the Randall Street Bridge. The city and OMM (city’s engineering consultant) will review these in the next week and submit a proposal to council at our next meeting on September 26, 2011.

Coopersville High School Collects Spare Change for Cancer Research

Coopersville High School Collects Spare Change for Cancer Research

Students throughout Michigan put in much more than their two cents this year to raise money for Pasta for Pennies presented by Olive Garden and benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  In fact, more than 205,000 students at 315 elementary, middle and high schools in Michigan collectively raised $450,000 to support cancer research.  Thanks to their successful efforts, combined with funds contributed by students nationwide, the funds raised for LLS through Pasta for Pennies over the past 17 years now total more than $61 million.

Students in first through 12th grade participated in this year’s program by filling collection jars and boxes in their classrooms with spare change over a three-week period during the school year.  The top fundraising class at each participating school received a pasta party from their local Olive Garden restaurant.
