Coolspring Celebrating Big Birthday!

 
 We're celebrating 80 years of Wildcat Pride!
 
Chances are, if you live in Coolspring Township you attended our school. Or maybe you worked here... or you have a friend or neighbor who did!  For generations, our friendly country school has been a close knit family, nurturing students who have reached great heights in college and careers. 
 
The 2017-18 school year marks the 80th anniversary of Coolspring Elementary School. The Coolspring Community Association (our parent-teacher organization) is planning several special events to celebrate, including a renovation project to turn the old concession stand on our property into an outdoor science classroom. (If you can help with materials or manpower for that project, please contact us.)
