Welcome to Copopa Elementary School

February 25, 2015
Join us in the K-8 cafeteria from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. This is a time for you to turn in your registration packet and sign up for kindergarten screening appointments. Kindergarten Screening will take place on April 16th and 17th. There will be time to meet other parents, staff and to become familiar with many school and community organizations. We hope that this night will be informative and we do ask that this time be for parents only.  There will be opportunities for our new kindergarteners to visit us in the future.   Please be prepared with a completed registration packet and copies of the documents below. Packets can be picked up at Copopa between 9am-2:30pm.

Copopa had fourth grade representatives this year at the Lorain County 24 Game competition. Students from all around Lorain County gathered at Lorain County Community College to participate in the math competition. “24” is a math game that uses cards with four numbers. Students add, subtract, multiply, and divide to make them equal 24. Students played two rounds of the game and the top 16 students went on to the semifinals. Sam and Vincent were in the top 16 in their round. Sam went on to win 3rd place at the competition! Carter and Kyleigh were part of the top 16 for their round. The students did a great job and are already looking forward to competing again next year as 5th graders!
