Cotopaxi is a little school nestled in the mountains of Colorado along the Arkansas River. The school is little but the heart of the school is huge. The students love going every day. The teachers are paid less than most but don't do it for the pay. I don't know if they love teaching or the students more. The mutual respect is outstanding. My three children are in 5th, 3rd, and 1st grade this year. They dread the summer when they can't go to school. The school, as with all schools, is struggling financially and could sure use this money. The list of needs has been made including getting new water piping, heater issues, and replacing the 25 year old carpet. The money would go towards a need and not a want. We are proud to be Cotopaxi Pirates! Thank you for your consideration!
