This week, MPS would like to recognize Jeanette Cooper for all the time and effort she has contributed at Townsend Street School. Julia Guyton, parent coordinator, nominated Ms. Cooper for this Family Spotlight.
“Ms. Cooper has health issues, but she is the first to volunteer to help with special events and other activities. She is a member of the School Governance Council, she represents Townsend at the District Advisory Council and she volunteers in her grandson's classroom.”
Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication, Jeanette!
