Did You Know or May I Remind You?

Did You Know,


May I Remind You?

  • School lunch now costs $2.60, breakfast is still $1.25
  • If you use MY SCHOOL BUCKS, be sure to give it 24 HOURS to update your child's lunch account.  The system will NOT immediately apply payments, it applies them once a day after 3:00 PM.  If your child's account balance is lower than the cost of their lunch, then they will receive an "emergency lunch".
  • If your child requires the use of crutches, a wheel chair, or any other medical device temporarily: a doctors note stating that the child has been trained on their use, the duration of use, and the reason for use must be submitted to the office before attending class.
  • The Cooper School Parking Lot is for paid employees of VUSD only. On top of our 70 + employees that serve our students daily, we also have support staff that work on and off site at different schools daily.  Unless you are a paid employee, please find a safe and legal place on the streets around campus.  The Vacaville Police Department recently issued a citation in our parking lot for a vehicle parked improperly.

PTO Fall Fundraiser

CooperSchool_Proof copy.jpg
Cooper School Family,

This year Cooper Elementary School is having a cash donation fundraiser in lieu of the more traditional catalog fundraiser. Last year’s fall fundraiser brought in a little over $10,000.  However, we only received 40% for profit, which means we made $4000.  With a cash donation drive, 100% of the money raised goes directly to Cooper School students and staff.

            Please ask family and friends to donate what they can to support your child’s education and Cooper school’s 21st century, STEM, and Career and College initiatives.  Return this card with any money raised by October 14th 2015.   Thank you in advance for your support.


Cooper School PTO

PRIZES FOR DONATIONS  (can be seen on display in the office:

*The student (one per grade level) who raises the most money gets lunch with the principal!

**The three classrooms with the most money raised get a pizza party and extended recess!

***Every student who raises $30 or more will get a PRIZE and will be entered into a drawing to win one of three grand prizes; A GALAXY TABLET, A ROBOT, or A CHROME BOOK (three grand prize winners).
