Cowan Blackhawk families,

I hope this message finds you well. As we approach the month of March, I want to bring your attention to an important upcoming event for our second and third graders: the IREAD-3 state assessment.

We want to ensure that all of our students have the necessary tools and resources to excel. As part of the assessment process, all second and third graders will need to have headphones or earbuds that plug into their Chromebooks.

Having headphones or earbuds will allow your child to focus and concentrate during the assessment without distractions. It will also ensure that they can fully engage with the assessment materials and perform to the best of their abilities.

I kindly ask that you please ensure your child has headphones or earbuds available for use during the assessment period in March. If your child does not have headphones or earbuds, please make arrangements to provide them before the assessment dates. Third grade will test on March 6 & 7, and second grade will test on March 11& 12.

As we step into the month of March, I wanted to take a moment to share with you our focus for this month's character trait: Creativity.

Creativity is a powerful force that lies within each and every one of our children. It's not just about being artistic or imaginative; it's about thinking outside the box, problem-solving in innovative ways, and expressing oneself uniquely. At Cowan Elementary, we believe that nurturing creativity is crucial in helping our students become well-rounded individuals ready to tackle the challenges of the future. Throughout March, we will be dedicating our efforts to fostering and celebrating creativity in our classrooms.

Sincerely,

Lendon D. Schwartz

Principal
