Mrs. Cooper

My name is Martha Cooper. I have been married to a wonderful man who has lead our home in following Christ for 32 years. We have two children, who both graduated from HCS and are now serving the Lord in a full time capacity. Nathan is the Media Minister at Hilltop church and School and his wife is a 5th grade teacher,and assistant volleyball coach. Our daughter,Morgan teaches JR and HS math at New Bern Christian Academy where her husband is the Outreach Minister.

We have been attending Hilltop Church since we moved here from W.Va. 25 years ago. I have been teaching at HCS for 17 years, 16 in 1st grade. I have also been coaching our ladies volleyball team for 10 years. I am amazed that God could use me.

My class thought for this year is: “It matters not what people think of me, it matters what they think of Christ because of me.”

I desire to help you train your children in the way God would have them to go.

I

               WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE

I am excited to begin another year. I want this year to be exciting and full of fun and learning. I can’t wait to see what God can do in this class.

BIBLE VERSE

Our first Bible verse for the year will be Romans Road to Salvation. The verse will be Rom.3:23,Rom. 6:23, Rom, 5:8, Rom. 10:9 & 10. We will begin working on this verse when school begins; it will be due Sept. 24-25.

We work on these verses daily and most students will learn them on class, but we suggest that you go over them a few times during the month. We do learn our verses one at a time,adding to each verse as we go. They will have the whole verse together by the end of the month. We usually learn one verse monthly.

Educational Games and Websites

Most kids enjoy playing computer games and are drawn to them by their vibrant colors, fun music or sounds and the idea of getting responses at the click of a button .  Below is a list of fun free educational websites that can be used to enhance your child’s learning skills.
