Cowan Elementary School


Cowan Blackhawk families,

Happy December! This school year is flying by! It's getting cold and we've had a couple of days where it snowed (just not enough to stay on the ground). Please remind your student/s to wear a coat to school each day. On 'warmer' days, we will try to get them outside for recess. 

This month the character trait we are focusing on is GENTLENESS. We will be working on being gentle in our words and actions.  

During this busy holiday season, please remember to be patient with others, show kindness, and slow down a little so you can enjoy everything that is going on.  

Thank you,

Lendon D. Schwartz

Cowan Elementary Principal

Secret Families: A huge thank you goes out to our students and families for the incredible generosity shown during our Secret Families of Delaware County fundraiser!
