Daily Bulletin and Up to Date Information


Safeway and Other Places Before/After School:  Hello Cobras – This is Mrs. Calkins reminding our students to be safe, responsible, respectful, and kind on your way to school and on your way home from school.  Please know that our local stores and businesses contact me when our students forget our school expectations, and please remember that you represent Cooley Middle School when you’re on your way to and from school.  Please see me at lunch if you need help understanding how to be the best Cobra in local stores and businesses or if you know someone who could use some support.  I’m grateful for our local stores and businesses who donate to Cooley and support our students, and I thank all of our students for helping our school look amazing in our community.  — Mrs. Calkins

Birthday Marquee: Our new marquee has been repaired and is up and running!! Yay!! If you would like your student’s birthday on the marquee, there are forms in the office. It is $20, cash or check, and the money goes to our Cooley Cares account to help students in need with supplies. Please turn in forms 3 day in advance of the birthday. Thank you.

Coffee Fundraiser Update- Way to go Cobras! We have started our school fundraiser off with a bang. Please keep selling or getting donations. Remember that an $8 donation is the same as selling 1 bag of coffee. When you earn the highest level of prizes you get all the prizes under that level. Thank you for helping our school and being amazing. Our Nest is the Best!–

Lock Up Your Transportation! – Cooley Cobras, remember to keep your belongings safe while on campus.  Please lock up all skateboards, scooters, and bikes while on campus.  If the skateboard / scooter racks are full, please take and lock your item in the bike racks instead.  This will help keep the gate area clear and safe for everyone!

Spirit Wear/Class Color Fridays are back! Wear any Cooley spirit wear item or your class color. 6th grade-green, 7th grade-black, 8th grade white.  Every Friday your Ambassadors will be taking spirit count in your 3rd period class. The class with the most participation for the trimester will earn a class pizza or donut party! Our Nest is the Best!!!

Cobra Closet – Not Accepting Donations: We have been overwhelmed with support from our community and have more clothes in the Cobra Closet than we could ever hope for! THANK YOU! For now, we are going to pause donations until we can get the Cobra Closet organized. Keep an eye on the bulletin for when we start accepting donations again. 

Planners: Your student can purchase a planner in the office for $5.

SCHOOL YEARBOOK: Families can purchase Cooley Yearbooks for $55 online at https://www.yearbookordercenter.com/index.cfm/job/7657.
