Weather doesn’t dampen Cooper Spirit Week
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Spirit Week is an annual tradition in the Upper School of The John Cooper School. The week of fun and spirit-related activities is held each year during the winter sports seasons of girls’ and boys’ basketball, soccer, cheerleading, swimming and diving, to promote “Dragon Pride.”
This year’s activities were delayed when the school was closed for two days due to inclement weather. The delay did not dampen the enthusiasm, however.
On January 19, amidst high-spirited cheerleading performances and friendly competition at a pep rally, seniors who were elected by their peers to the 2018 Dragon Court, were presented at center court of the Dunlap Gym. Crowned 2018 Dragon King and Queen were Gurtej Gill and Anne Sophie Albers. Dragon Court members also included Obie Amudo, Mason Chimenti, Oriana Garcia, Eric Grosser, Garrett Norris, Ryan Reid, Shilpa Rumalla and Grayson Sloop.
Also delayed as part of Spirit Week was a barbeque fundraiser for the school’s 2018 Habitat Homebuilding Project that was re-scheduled for January 23.
