The Cooper Elementary PTO is a parent-
teacher organization not only devoted to the
support of the Cooper Elementary student body
and school staff, but also dedicated to assist
with school projects through volunteering and
funding. We promote family time through
events such as Family Movie Night and
our annual Gingerbread House Night. We
demonstrate appreciation through events such
as Teacher Appreciation Luncheons. This
year our main project is to raise money for
playground equipment. Our goal is to provide
a safe, nurturing environment for the children
during recreational time. There are several
ways the community can help. Grandparents,
alumni, friends, and neighbors are all
encouraged to participate in the following
Box Top Education - Clip box tops off of
your favorite products from Betty Crocker,
Bisquick, Fiber One, Pillsbury, Yoplait,

being placed throughout the community and
in the classrooms at the Elementary School.

Our kids are the future and as a community
we need to come together and help provide the
provisions to keep our kids on track to be the
best that they can be... our future teachers...
our future store owners... our future mailmen,
ranchers, reporters, bank tellers, insurance
agents, policemen, and who knows... maybe
one day a future President of the United States.
Our overall goal as a PTO is to be there for the
kids. We appreciate the community standing
beside us and helping mold our kids of today
to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Roxton to adopt city flag
By Phillip R. Rutherford
The Roxton Community Development
Committee is sponsoring a contest to select
a city flag for Roxton. The winner of the
competition for the best design will win a cash
prize of $200. The deadline for submissions
is March 1, 2010, and you may enter as many
times as you wish.
The contest is open to all—Roxtonites,
former Roxtonites, non-Roxtonites, artists,
non-artists, children, adults, art classes,
illustrators, professionals, non-professionals,
people who can’t draw flies-everyone.
Entries should be submitted on a sheet of
paper approximately 8 inches by 11 inches,
but size is not critical. On one side present
your design for the flag in color(s). Place your
name and address on the back. Names will
be covered so as not to affect the selection
Keep in mind that your pictures, emblems,
letters, etc., will grace a flag that will be seen
from a distance. Very small detail will be lost
on a flag approximately 2 feet by 3 feet, high
in the air.
A sub-committee will conduct the initial
screening and submit a small group of designs
to the Community Development Committee,
which will choose the one they consider the
best. The winning entry then will be presented
to the City Council for its approval. Naturally,
the sub-committee, CDC, or City Council may
reject any or all of the submissions.
The winner of the contest will be selected at
the March meeting of the CDC. The winning
design will then be submitted to the City
Council at its March meeting for its approval.
All entries must be in by March 1, 2010.
Send them to Phillip R. Rutherford, Box 353,
Roxton, Texas 75477.
The CDC hopes to have many designs
submitted. The winner will acquire not only
$200, but also a little piece of immortality.

integral part of Girl Scouts’ Business and
Economic Literacy initiative for girls in grades
K through 12. What started out as a bake sale
