In 1987 Myrtle Cooper Elementary School was opened as a PK-8th grade school. The school was named for the late Myrtle Cooper who served as the Socorro Independent School District's first superintendent in 1961.
Myrtle Cooper celebrated Dr. Seuss Day on Monday, March 3rd. Students began their day with breakfast in the classroom consisting of a Dr. Seuss favorite, Green Eggs and Ham! Then, the Socorro American Federation of Teachers presented a book to every student at our school!
