Cooper Middle School Students Support, Cheer On Athletes At Special Olympics
THE WOODLANDS, TX - Members of the Middle School Student Council, Cooper Connects Club and other sixth through eighth grade student volunteers, plus parent and faculty sponsors, attended the annual Special Olympics at Oak Ridge High School on January 28. Eighteen Cooper students worked with individual athletes to demonstrate each event, cheer them on during participation and kept score in order to tally scores and designate medals. Middle School counselor Jodie Walters said it was wonderful to see the many positive interactions that took place between the student volunteers and the Olympians.
