  • Announcements and Notices

    A monthly newsletter, the Bear Facts, is put online each month. We also have hardcopies for students without a computer. The newsletter is intended to inform parents of specific announcements and information.

    Please read all the notices that are sent home and return them when asked to do so. Send money (particularly for younger students) in a sealed envelope, labeled with your child’s name, teacher’s name, and stating what purpose the money should be used for such as school pictures, field trips, etc. Please check for our School Newsletters online.

    Our Parent Link automatic telephone system will be used as needed to communicate important messages and notices.

  • Field Trips

    Field trips are planned on an individual class grade or group basis and approved by the Principal. Each student who participates in a field trip activity pays his or her individual share of the cost. The total cost for the trip is calculated on the basis of the number of students participating.

    For each field trip, the teacher and the bookkeeper will establish a procedure for collecting payments. The assigned deadline will be strictly adhered to, so please be prompt with your payment. Field trip money is non-refundable. To chaperone field trips, parents must complete their volunteer paperwork at least two weeks prior to the field trip. All chaperones must be Level 1 approved under the Jessica Lunsford Act of 2005. A selection process is used to fairly choose chaperones.

  • Parent Meetings and Leadership Groups

    We have the following very active parent groups: the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the School Advisory Forum (SAF), and the School Advisory Council (SAC), all of which conduct activities that benefit the school. If you want to contact a parent group or if you are interested in joining one, call the school for further information and attend the meetings.

    School Advisory Forum, PTA, and the School Advisory Council meet regularly each month in the Media Center as noted on the calendars. You are encouraged to get involved. Learn more about SAC and SAF.

    Additional parent meetings of various groups will be called during the year as the need arises and you will be notified as to the time and place.

  • Parties and Birthdays

    Classroom parties are held three times during the school year: A fall festival party at the end of October, a winter holiday party before winter break, and an end of the school year celebration.

    Birthdays

    If you wish to send in a treat for the class to share on your child’s birthday, you may only bring store-bought items such as cookies, cupcakes, or donut holes. They will be passed out in the cafeteria. It is not permitted to bring drinks, balloons, cakes, games or toys. Also, please do not plan on taking pictures, not all children are allowed to be photographed.

  • Visitors

    All visitors and parents are welcome and encouraged to visit the school. Florida law requires that all visitors report to the front office, state the nature of their visit, and obtain a visitor’s pass. No one is permitted to enter the building without a pass.

    Students not registered at Cooper City Elementary may not visit the school during class time.

    We observe No Smoking on school grounds, so please extinguish cigarettes prior to leaving your car or arriving on campus.

    Unexpected or extended visits to classes are not permitted. All classroom visits must be pre-arranged and have teacher and administration approval.

  • Volunteers

    The service of parent volunteers is an integral part of the school program and assistance is always welcome. There is a staff and a parent coordinator who will forward information to you regarding participation in our volunteer program. It is mandatory that every school year, all volunteers register with the district program before beginning volunteer work in the school. Complete your Volunteer Application online. Approval takes 2 to 3 days. All volunteer applications will be screened according to the guidelines established under the Jessica Lunsford Act of 2005.

Therefore, SBBC Policy 5.9: Anti-Bullying mandates that parents be provided access to an annual training module that educates them on the application of Policy 5.9, including how to report and intervene with suspected bullying, the bullying investigation process, as well as each student's right to appeal the investigation findings.

  • Policy 5010: Dating Violence Prevention Parent Training

    Broward County Public Schools recognizes that parents/legal guardians are an integral part of a school’s safe and respectful environment as well as their child’s success. Therefore, SBBC Policy 5010: Against Student Dating Violence or Abuse (Grades 6-12) mandates that parents be provided access to an annual training module that provides student dating violence prevention awareness, so they are better able to prevent, identify, respond, and report suspected dating violence. For more information on the District's dating violence prevention policy, go to www.BrowardSchools.com/DatingViolencePrevention.

    PARENT TRAINING DIRECTIONS

  • Agents/Consultants/Contractors/Vendors/Visitors/Volunteers Training

    School Board policies 5.9 and 5010 are applicable to any student, employee, Board member, District employee, agent, consultant, contractor, vendor, visitors, volunteer, or other person in the school or outside the school at school-sponsored events, on school buses, and at training facilities or training programs sponsored by the District. While on school grounds, these adults may be responsible for the welfare of pupils and are expected to know policy information and adhere to behavioral policy standards. Therefore, both policies mandate trainings be made available to these parties, so they are better able to prevent, identify, respond, and report suspected bullying or student dating violence.
