SIX FLAGS READING INCENTIVE

Look for flyers coming home this week in backpack mail. Students can earn a free ticket to Six Flags Great America for reading! It's a great way to motivate the kids to keep reading over winter break! If you have any questions, contact Hyeon Tai at taigrrrl@yahoo.com.



COWLISHAW TEACHER AND STAFF WISHLISTS

The PTA has asked our teachers and staff to provide us with a wishlist of things they would like for the classroom or just for fun. They are posted on the school website under the PTA tab. Feel free to use them as a guide if you would like to get your child’s classroom teacher and/or other Cowlishaw staff a little thank you gift this year! Questions? Contact Michelle McCorkle at mmccorkle@deloitte.com.
