Mrs. Jennifer Brown
Hi and welcome to my classroom! My name is Jennifer Brown and I have been teaching Kindergarten at Cooper for 17 years. I am a Connecticut native, living in NC for the last 26 years. I graduated from the University of Connecticut (go HUSKIES) and Southern CT State. I have been teaching at the K level for over 25 years. I have been married to my husband, Rich, for 24 years. I have 2 daughters. Elloree is a junior at Appalachian State University. Charlie is a senior at Clayton High. Both of my girls are Cooper graduates. This is our second home.
I am so excited to meet all our new Cooper families and welcome you into my classroom. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an email over the break.
Have a wonderful summer!

We are sharing information with our families about the Targeted Support & Improvement State Level guidance for schools who have underperformed on state-wide assessments during the past few years. Of course, last year we did not have End-of-Grade testing in North Carolina due to COVID-19 school closures.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
