Welcome to Copopa Elementary School

Copopa Staff is wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday!

It's not too late to order Period2 Spirit Gear. Snuggly blankets, cozy hats, and team pennants are still available to order until January 15. Use the flyer from the website to order yours today! Thanks for supporting Period2, a Junior Achievement company created, owned, and operated by Columbia High School students.

Our 1st Annual Art Gala was a success. Thank you to everyone that tookthe time to stop in and see all of the artwork from our students. Thank you to the PTA for helping make the evening a huge hit! We hope to do this again next year.
The Giving Tree and Student Council would like to thank everyone that donated to our food drive this year. We collected more than three carts full of food.
Your donations will really help the Columbia Food Bank during the Holiday Season.

Yesterday we had an amazing assembly to kick off our Invention Convention Program for grades K-8! Every student took home a yellow flyer with information as to how to register for the program. Please see the link provided below to register your child for invention convention.

Columbia Invention Convention Information Brochure

We encourage all students to particpiate in this event. After students register, Mrs. Bowman will be sending home the Invention Convention Student Journal with your child. The invention and journal are to be completed at home. A timeline and additional information will come home while your student is inventing. In the spring we will host our own Invention Convention here at Columbia Local Schools. Top Inventors from that event will go on to the Northeast Regional Finals on May 2nd at Cleveland State University. Three things need to be present at CSU should your child be selected as a top inventor: your student, their invention, and their journal. The journal is very important in the inventing process and should be completed as indicated in the journal. If you have any additional questions please contact Mrs. Bowman.
