On February 14th cartoonist Jim Gill visited Copopa Elementary Schools grade 3 and 4 Young Authors. Mr. Gill has been drawing and illustrating his entire life. He has used his talents to create humorous greeting cards for American Greetings. He spoke to our third graders about drawing characters and using facial expressions to convey feeling and our fourth graders about shading and lighting their illustrations. In coming weeks these students will be illustrating their stories for the Young Authors Conference which is brought to us through the Lorain County Education Service Centers Gifted and Talented Program.

Hour of Code Week!
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That's why Copopa joined in on the largest education event in history. The Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is a statement that our school is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. See WWW.CODE.ORG for details. Also check out some great pictures in our slideshow of our students participating in their hour of code.

Current year school fees are now on your child's account. All fees from past years are overdue. To set up a payment plan, please contact Mrs. Lasecki in the office at 440.236.5020. You may pay your school fees through the Payforit link on left or in the office with cash, check or credit card.
