A Fond Farewell to Superintendent O'Neill

A Fond Farewell to Superintendent O'Neill

COOPERSVILLE, MI - Even though retiring superintendent Kevin O'Neill's  last day isn’t until August 31st, staff and students at Coopersville Area Public Schools celebrated Dr. O’Neill’s 13 years of "Gold Medal Achievements" in an Olympic event with the entire staff and student body present. Over 2600 people were able to keep a secret in order to surprise the outgoing superintendent. The festivities began with Olympic style fanfare with Music and Dr. O’Neill leading a five building student delegation with an Olympic torch in hand to the stage. Followed by an all-school photograph courtesy of Geskus Photography. Next the gymnasium roared while Band Director Scott Struyk led every one in the Bronco Fight song.

Each Building presented Dr. O’Neill with a "Gold Medal of Achievement" symbolizing the wonderful legacies he has left for the Coopersville District.

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! 

Field Day Fun!

Field Day Fun!

COOPERSVILLE MI - Bronco Field days are always a favorite with Coopersville Students. Sunshine and fun competitive sports make it a great day for kids and parent volunteers alike. Having all grades on one campus helps facilitate the festivities. Some Middle School students come and volunteer their services for the day. The field events are designed so that everyone can suceed. You need not look any further than the smiles on the youngsters faces to see how much fun they are having. A big thank you to Mrs. Zemaitis for all the planning and all the parent Volunteers for helping to make this day a big success!

Coopersville Schools Welcomes New Technology Director

Coopersville Schools Welcomes New Technology Director

Scott Plough is the new Technology Director for Coopersville Schools. He will be jumping right in with his duties to help oversee some new mini laptop purchases. This will help complete the tech plan of giving every student in grades 6-12 a mini netbook to use by the fall of 2012. The middle school and the high school have wireless technology enabling students to use their “Mini’s” anywhere within their buildings.

Scott was formerly the Network Manager for Muskegon schools. “With the huge investment of technology here in the district, now is the time to protect that investment with a Director who can manage all aspects of that technology.” said Ron Veldman Assistant Superintendent. This position will also allow us to do many services in-house thus saving on contracted services for a considerable cost savings for the District.”
