Welcome to Copopa Elementary School

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. 


To see the brochure that went home with each student please click the links below.

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.

Excerpt from the Chronicle:
Veteran's Day "Wall of Honor"
We need paper bricks! Please 
have your son or daughter 
request a brick for a veteran or

honor family members, friends 
and relatives. Bricks are in the 
office and will be part of our

Veteran's Day is just around the corner and Copopa Student Council needs your help to honor our heros. This year, it is our intention to create a giant "Wall of Honor". Please click on the link below to get more information about how you can help us creat the "Wall of Honor".
