Your student should have completed week 1, 2, 3 & 4, turned in the second ticket of the Ozzie Cougar Reading log, and started week 5! If you didn't send in the first or second ticket, it's not too late! Just submit them now! Keep encouraging your child to log in their reading minutes! This eight-week program (1/14/18-3/10/18) is to encourage reading as a foundation for learning. Your child will log their reading time in 2 week increments and turn them in to their teachers. After completing the 8 week reading program, they will earn a free ticket to a Kane County Cougars game with their classmates for this upcoming season. Kindergarten-2nd Grade students will be completing their logs in the classroom.


Do you have a child in 5th Grade? Then we need their pictures!!! The PTA is creating a slide show for the kids during their “Farewell” day and we want your kid to be in it. We are looking for pictures of your child throughout their time at Cowlishaw, so Kindergarten till now. Preferably pictures from school/PTA events like Donuts with Dads, Muffins with Moms, Dinner night out, Luau, Halloween party, classroom parties, Watch Dogs, etc… We will take other pictures as well, 1st day of school pics, birthday party pics with classmates, etc.

Please send any Digital prints to by April 15th.
