O'Neills Leave a Legacy

COOPERSVILLE, MI - Dr. Kevin O’Neill and his family have made a wonderful gift to our community. Kevin and his wife Pat, and his family, will continue to impact the education of young people through their new Fund at the Coopersville Area Community Foundation. The O’Neill Family Fund, started by Kevin and Pat, and is intended to honor Kevin’s parents Bud and Rita O’Neill. It is a Designated Endowment Fund that will forever support the Coopersville Schools Teacher and staff Mini-Grant Program. The Mini-Grants help educators with the “extras” that can make learning become extraordinary. The O'Neill Fund will continue the legacy Kevin started while superintendent. Thank you to Dr. O'Neill and his family for their generous gift to the Coopersville Area Public School District's children.

Coopersville High School Bands Hit a Homerun at District Festival!

Coopersville High School Bands Hit a Homerun at District Festival!

All of the Coopersville High School band groups did an outstanding job at the District Band Festival where they received straight "ones".  This feat is the same as every band hitting a homerun.  Although CHS Bands have had years where all of the groups have received final ratings of a 1st division at District, it is extremely rare for all of the groups to earn all 1st Divisions from all 4 judges at the festival.  The Coopersville Bands continue their legacy of top notch performances in all that they do. These musicians have now been chosen to perform at the State level! Congratulations on a job well done!

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.
