Cowan Elementary School



Cowan Blackhawk families,

Your generosity and thoughtfulness during Teacher Appreciation Week meant the world to us. Our teachers truly appreciate all the love and support you have shown. Thank you for recognizing the hard work and dedication our teachers put into educating and nurturing every child. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

The school year is just about to finish and before we know it summer break will begin. I can’t thank you enough for entrusting us with your child or children. Thank you for your support throughout this past year. I am proud to be a Blackhawk!

Wishing you all a wonderful end of the school year and a fantastic summer break ahead!


Lendon D. Schwartz


Have a great summer!
