      Administrator's Report

      • 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

      hopes to use the system to alert families of school closures, and for
      reminders for school wide events.
