Cowern’s Fall Fund-raiser. No wrapping paper, candy, stationary to sell, organize and deliver. Students “sell” their ability to “run for the money”. Collection for donations will begin in September. This event involves and benefits each and every student at Cowern and helps fund classrooms, field trips, special school programs, and more! This event happens during the school day--come watch the kids rack up their laps! Cowern's Fund Run is October 11, 2019!
Cowern’s annual, signature fund-raising event involves the entire community. Games, activities, a prize room, silent auction, cash raffle, magician, funky hair, and much more! Area business donations, parental volunteers, and careful year-round planning make the carnival a success. Recent carnival proceeds purchased structures for the Cowern playground, classroom sound systems, and iPads for upper grades. This is an all-hands on deck event, so save the date! See you at the carnival! Cowern Carnival is TENTATIVELY April 17, 2020!
