F. W. Cook Elementary School - Principal's Corner

September 2016

Dear Cook Families:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Our commitment at F.W. Cook Elementary School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and life long learners.

In addition to high academic standards for all students, we believe it is vital for students to participate in co-curricular activities. You will hear more about co-curricular programming across grade levels at a later date. Global awareness and responsible citizenship are also critical to the success of our school; hence we have two major themes that we will be focusing on this year.  We are the World and Protecting the Environment.  These themes will be project based go across grade levels and academic subjects. 

 We are all excited about the new school year and look forward to your continued partnerships in the many activities that we have planned.  In addition to the school-based activities, the PTO has planned a very ambitious calendar and needs your support.  Remember- Our village is only strong when we work together.

In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at ccooper1@plainfield.k12.nj.us. I am honored to serve as your principal and look forward to a great school year!
