Even though the Washington Redskins lost their home game to the Atlanta Falcons, a group of Cople Elementary School students still consider them champions. On November 4, fifteen Cople students were in the stadium loudly cheering on their team and classmate. Guests of Washington Redskin Linebacker, Pernell McPhee (#96) and the Redskins Charitable Foundation, the students had a day to remember. One student, Serenity Coleman, was randomly selected to participate as the honorary second half kick-off kid and was featured on the FedEx Field jumbotron screen.
This year Cople Elementary School elected to participate in the 2018-2019 Redskins Read program. All Cople 4th and 5th graders were given a Redskins Read Playbook to use. The Playbook was designed to help students track the books they are reading and write about their favorite parts of the book. Each month, students are asked to address a specific prompt. There are vocabulary and writing activities for every month. Among the features in the Playbook is a Redskin player profile for the students to read. According to the Redskins, the “more you read and the more activities you complete, the better chance you, your class, and your school have of winning awesome Redskin prizes.”
