Aaron and Kara Cooper were greeted warmly by Country School parents at a casual reception held in their honor on Monday evening. Mr. Cooper also enjoyed an outdoor barbeque with the entire faculty and staff on Wednesday.
“From the first moment we stepped foot on campus, Kara and I have been taken by the warmth of this community and we can’t wait to begin our lives here,” said Mr. Cooper. “These two days have given me a small but important window into the people, program and culture that define the Country School experience.”
Mr. Cooper will return to campus in mid-May along with his family for the Frogtown Fair before officially beginning his tenure as the school’s sixth Head of School on July 1.
