Columbia Middle School/Copopa Elementary

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be working at both CMS and Copopa this year! I will be at CMS on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, while I am at Copopa on Tuesdays and  Thursdays. Yes, it will be crazy, and, I’m sure very busy, but I am up to the challenge! I love working with students of all ages, and I do remember most of you from your days at Copopa, so I think everything will be fine. Of course everyone will miss Ms. Kappus, as will I, but we wish her the best in her retirement, she deserves it! I will be doing classroom lessons in the 5th and 6th grade this year, as well as starting some groups for 7th and 8th graders. If you would be interested in a group, please come in to my office and let me know, I will put your name down and will let you know when a group will be starting. The groups we can do depend on the needs of students, but there are many to choose from, such as, divorce, changing families, friendship, study skills, anger management, and more. I try to keep the number of students to about 4 or 5 to a group so it’s easier to share and get to know one another.

Another big deal coming up will be standardized testing. All of our testing will be online this year.  As the time gets closer, we will send more information home about the tests and which grades and subjects will be tested.

Finally, remember that I am always available to you on any day, even those days I am at Copopa. If there is an emergency, someone will call me and I will come to CMS in a flash. You may need to talk about your grades, schoolwork, friendship drama, family crisis, or personal problem, but whatever it is, I am here for you. Anything you tell me is strictly confidential, and I will not share it with anyone, unless you tell me that someone is hurting you, or if you want to hurt someone or yourself, then I am mandated by law to tell someone. Life can be hard in middle school for some kids, but it can be harder if you feel like there is no one to talk to. Feel free to stop in and talk anytime, together we can get through anything!
