Last Day Blues ~ Saying goodbye to a mentor, a friend, and a leader.

Last Day Blues ~ Saying goodbye to a mentor, a friend, and a leader.

COOPERSVILLE, MI - Normally on the last day of school, students and teachers are all smiles as they get a break from all the hard schoolwork, but at East and West Elementaries in Coopersville there was a feeling of sadness as their principal of 11 years was saying goodbye for the final time. Mr. Salo is retiring after 37 years in education.

Staff and students gathered to dedicate a rock in his honor. This huge rock has a plaque with a tribute on it so he will always be remembered as the wonderful leader that he was. Students cheered and held signs telling their principal that he is the best! Many people come and go, however few will leave such a positive lasting impact on students, staff, and families the way that Mr. Salo has. He will be greatly missed by all. Students will be in good hands though as their assistant principal Mrs. Marie DeGroot will be their new principal for East and West  Elementaries in the fall of 2011.

What are the odds?

What are the odds?

COOPERSVILLE, MI What are the odds that in one class, and in one day, and in one half-hour period, four students in Mrs. Kelly Russo's first grade class would lose a front tooth! The excitement just kept building as each student exclaimed "I lost my tooth!"  It never gets old when  students lose their teeth. It is a right of passage.

Wiggly Chicks

Wiggly Chicks

COOPERSVILLE, MI - First graders learn all about baby chicks and how they are born. During a 21 day cycle each student has the opportunity to rotate the eggs three times a day while the eggs are in the incubator. Students then observed the chicks crack the shell open with their "egg-tooth" and slowly emerge. The children waited in anticipation for the arrival of the baby chicks! When the chicks were finally born the students learned how to care for them and the best part was holding them before they were given away to a local family to be raised. It was a fabulous learning experience, which correlated with their science lesson on the "Life-cycle".
