The holidays are around the corner, and we have an exciting program coming to our school. Wouldn’t it be great if your children could shop for their family without them being there? They could pick out a special gift and you wouldn’t know what it is until your gift exchange.

During the week of December 4 – 8th, we will be having a shop where the children can shop secretly for their loved ones. Be watching for posters around the school and in a couple weeks we will send home letters and budget envelopes explaining more about the program.


If you ordered Yankee Candles with the paper order form and have not yet picked them up, contact Katy Loo at to arrange pick-up. You can still order online until December 12th. Go to and enter Cowlishaw's group number #990012847 in the "start shopping" box.

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 Kristin Wolfgram

The Engage 204 sessions will explore different aspects of the district, including enrollment, district finances, and other key issues involved in maintaining a successful educational experience for students.
