Earlier this fall, students in Mrs. McGuire, Mrs. Sumrall, and Mrs. Tolman's classes entered an essay contest sponsored by the city of Garland. The "I Care About Garland's Creeks" contest was open to all students in the city, and a total of 564 fourth grade entries were received. All essays were read, and those deserving went to the next round of judging.
Representing Cooper in the first round of judging were Ivan Montanez, Trynity Glover, Kim Mai, Emely Hernandez, and Luis Crapo. Those advancing to the second round of judging were Gizelle Robinson, Bree Tanguy, Furtuna Amare, Jessie Miller. An overall 3rd place win and $100 prize went to Lochlin Belcher. Paula Breysacher, from the city Stormwater Management department, came to school to award Lochlin her prize. Congratulations to all!
