While it’s unclear exactly what the school year will look like, the Coppell Chamber of Commerce is preparing to help kick it off one way or the other.
The chamber will host its annual New Teacher Breakfast for teachers and staff of both Coppell ISD and Universal Academy. The first event will take place Aug. 4 at the Coppell High School Arena, 185 W. Parkway Blvd. The second breakfast will take place Aug. 13 at Universal Academy, 1001 E. Sandy Lake Road. Both events run from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
The chamber is seeking goodie bag items and sponsorships. Money raised from the event will benefit the Coppell Chamber’s College Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to local high school seniors, the chamber said.
Goodie bag items needed include school supplies, office supplies, gift certificates, specialty items or products, etc. They can be dropped off at the chamber office by Monday.

Pop-up Expo rescheduled
Due to growing COVID-19 concerns, the chamber’s Outdoor Pop-up Expo has been rescheduled for Aug. 14. The event will run from 6-9 p.m. at JC’s Burger Bar in Coppell.
The event was originally scheduled this past Friday.
“Due to the rapid rise of COVID 19 and the growing concerns about social distancing, we felt it was the responsible step to take to ensure the safety and welfare of our community,” the chamber stated.
