Cowan Families,

It sure is nice to see the sunshine and have some warmer weather!  It's hard to tell if it is here to stay or if we'll get more snow and go back to freezing temperatures. We do live in Indiana! 

State assessments are about to begin!  Our teachers have worked very hard to prepare our Blackhawks for IREAD-3 and ILEARN.  Next week, our 3rd graders will take IREAD-3 on Wednesday and Thursday. It is extremely important that all 3rd graders are at school and on time.  Please make sure that your student(s) get to bed early and have breakfast at home or at school so they can focus during the test. 

ILEARN testing for grades 3-6 will begin during the week of April 19th. 

Please start each day with a lot of positive encouragement for your student(s). This helps them mentally prepare for the test and motivates them to give it their best. 

Spring Break is just around the corner!  Spring Break starts on March 19th and ends on March 26th. We hope that you are able to enjoy some time off.

Thank you, 

Lendon D. Schwartz
