Cooper Students Attend Model UN
Ben Howlett, Matteo de Laurentis, Bijan Borouom, Izzie Harman, Lauren Markwart and Emily Kruse were assigned countries, and provided background papers prior to the conference. They researched their topics and wrote position papers for their country based on their research. The students spent the weekend debating everything from blockades in the Strait of Hormuz, to human trafficking, and using food as a weapon. The students defended their country’s policies and positions, formed alliances with other countries, and dealt with unexpected crisis such as hostage negotiations, and suicide bombers.
The students partnered with Longfellow Middle School for the Trivia Competition, and walked away with first place.

Blackboard Mobile App:
New for the 2013-2014 school year FCPS middle and high school students have an opportunity to utilize the Blackboard Mobile Learn App, which provides students access to FCPS 24-7 courses through their iOS or Android phone or tablet.
FCPS 24-7 Mobile is a valuable tool to keep students connected to their courses.
Using the mobile app students will be able to:
- Check announcements

- Take Blackboard tests (not tests in Horizon)
- View documents
- Create discussion posts and journal entries and comment on blogs

To utilize the app, students will need to find the Blackboard Mobile Learn App in the Google Play or iTunes App store. Students will download the Blackboard app, and search for the school “Fairfax County Public Schools, VA”. There is no charge to use the app. Once the app is downloaded and installed then the student will log into the app using his/her FCPS 24-7 username and password.
