Friends of Hale Cook helps support KCPS and Hale Cook Elementary through programming and activities that build community around our neighborhood school. We also work to identify opportunities to improve the school and neighborhood as part of our commitment to giving back. You and the family are invited to join us this weekend for a few great activities – we hope to see you sometime soon.

Campus for the Future: Community Invited to Participate in Brainstorming

Friends of Hale Cook is partnering with the District to help shape the campus – come give us your ideas!

KCPS has invited Friends of Hale Cook and the neighborhood to provide input on the future of the Hale Cook Campus. With plans to install a playground, demolish a classroom trailer, and expand our “greening” of the campus, there are many considerations. With an active school, we want to develop the best plans for parent drop-offs, buses, and other activities that will bring this campus alive.

We want to know what you might envision for the future of our campus! Please join us for either (or both) of these planning sessions – bring your kiddos and neighbors as they have great ideas too. We look forward to hearing what you think is important to making this campus a true neighborhood center.
You’re invited to join us for either brainstorming session on the Hale Cook master plan at 11 E. Gregory, Suite 200:
  • Saturday, February 15 from 10AM-12PM
  • Monday, February 17 from 7PM-9PM
