Amy is proud to report that the Cowles Lego League Teams did an
amazing job at their recent competition. One team is going to State
Finals and received an award for being a Rising Star.
December 8th Dr. Sebring impressed everyone with her presentation
confirming that Cowles is now on the districts map. All the feedback
Amy received was positive about Dr. Sebring visit.
The Cowles students will be working with an Artist in Residence,
Barb Vaske, through the Connecting Kids and Culture funding. Each
child will contribute to a mural to be placed in the front entrance to
the school. The Mural will have a Mexican theme.
Cowles students will have a wide selection of after school
programming to consider this winter. Groups planned include, Scrap
booking, Drama, Math, Sign Language, Sewing, and more. Watch for a
school e-mail with additional information and ways to sign up.
Amy has completed a trial run on a phone messaging system that she
hopes to use as an additional tool to connect with families. She
hopes to use the system to alert families of school closures, and for
reminders for school wide events.
