February At Cooper Lake State Park
Feb 23 all-day

Cooper Lake State Park has a lot to offer in February.

Sulphur Springs, TX— Cooper Lake State Park in February has a lot to offer! Across both park units, a total of fourteen programs focused on family fun and learning about our natural world will be presented. Highlighted plans for the month will be on Astronomy and Dutch oven cooking. A family favorite, Arts in the Park, is back for the month as well. Also, attend and learn about a variety of plants and animals common to this part of Texas through multiple programs and so much more! Bring each fun and learning packed Saturday to a fitting conclusion with your family and friends relaxing around a campfire at the park! Campfires are part of our collective human DNA. The flickering light and warmth of a winter campfire will lift your spirit and reconnect you to feelings shared by a past generation.

Bring a picnic and enjoy the day-use area on a warm February afternoon. Fish off our pier or rent a boat and try your luck throughout the lake. Fish attractors have been placed around the Doctor’s Creek floating fishing pier to help increase fishing success. Crappie, bluegill, bass, and catfish are commonly caught at both park units. Hike our trails or just relax under a giant Post Oak tree or camp at one of our tree canopied campsites, recharging your soul!

Park entrance fees are $5 for adults with kids 12 and under always free. Senior Texans 65 or older will only pay $3 to enter the park daily with a Bluebonnet Pass. Unlimited park entrances for you and everyone in your vehicle can be accomplished with the purchase of a Texas State Park Annual Pass for $70 which is good for over 12 months. All programs are free with paid entrance fees.

Have You Been Bullied?
Feb 23 all-day

Do you feel like you have been bullied before or do you think you have bullied someone else? What exactly is bullying?

Bullying is defined as an individual using consistent or reoccurring behavior, like teasing, name-calling, poking, or pushing to intimidate someone. These actions intend to force the individual to do what you would want them to do.

Bullying causes people to lose, become unhappy, lose self-esteem, and in some cases begin to self-harm.

Be the change you would like to see in your school and community. Become comfortable speaking openly about your day with your parent or guardian. Stay calm and respectful during encounters with peers. Yes, it is difficult, but can be powerful, even when they are being disrespectful. This will create a healthy form of communication, build character, and resilience.

Join Pittsburg High School DECA as they Take a Stand and Lend a Hand, by trying these tips:

1. Educate yourself.
2. Choose to be nice.
3. Be a friend.
4. Stop untrue or harmful messages from spreading.
5. Make friends outside of your circle and reach out to new people at your school.
6. Respect others’ differences.
