Welcome to Cowan
The faculty and staff at Cowan Avenue School would like to welcome both the families new to our school and the families who are returning after summer vacation. We look forward to making the 2011-2012 school year the very best for all of our students. Our focus on improvement has made this one of the best schools in the Westchester area. It’s an exceptional school because it brings the key elements required for an effective school: school leadership, quality teachers, supportive parents, and community support. The teaching staff is coming together in an intentional manner to provide all of our children with the best possible education. Our students are excited, involved learners and school leadership is apparent at each grade level.
You are very important in helping maintain high standards in our school. Get to know your child’s teacher early; see him/her if you have questions. Discuss with your child the importance of their school experience. Encourage your child to do his/her homework daily. Remember that regular attendance and arriving on time is important for academic success. Come to school events and volunteer when possible. The more involved you are in your child’s education, the more meaningful the school experience will be to your child and for you. Cowan School exists to provide the best education possible for our children and this year we rededicate ourselves as a school community to prepare our children for success. Remember Cowan Avenue is a uniform school.
Let’s have a great year!
R. Da Sylveira, Principal
