As my PTA Co-President term comes to an end, I’d just like to say a big thank you to all of the wonderful Board Members, Committee Chairs, and Volunteers who have been so generous with their time and talents the past two years! We truly appreciate everything you have done for us and for our school, and could not have done the MANY things we did without you! I am so proud of everything we accomplished together and am grateful that I got to know so many of you. Please continue to support our school and PTA in the coming years by getting involved and volunteering. When we all do a little, our kids get a lot!

Have a fun and relaxing summer,

Kristin Wolfgram


We will have some open committee chair positions next year. If you’re interested please contact Michelle McCorkle at

A special thank you to Kristin Wolfgram and Julie Sterzinger for all of your efforts and serving on the board these last years! You will be greatly missed!


Hello Cowlishaw Families! On behalf of Mrs. Eaton, we are looking for 3-4 families per week to water and weed our Cowlishaw garden this summer.

We welcome any student and their entire family to help! Families can sign up for a day and come anytime from 8-3:30 on that day, Monday through Thursday. No experience? No problem! Call or text Mrs. Eaton at (630) 201-5728 to set up a time to come in and have her show you around. She'll be available on June 4th, OR you can contact her to set up an alternate date and time.

Not sure which plants are weeds, or which areas to focus on? Mrs. Eaton is happy to answer your questions--just call or text. The hose will be out by the garden, and the hose key will be in the main office. You are also welcome to harvest and take home any produce that is ready! Hint: even kids who say they don't like vegetables will try ones they have picked themselves. Thank you for your support! Use the following link to sign up.
