National Stop on Red Week is August 2nd - 8th                                                          

Did you know that red light running is the leading cause of urban crashes?  In 2009, running red lights resulted in 41 fatalities in South Carolina.  Therefore, it’s especially important to remind ourselves to drive safely in and around our school zones.  This campaign is dedicated to educating Americans about the dangers of running red lights through education and enforcement efforts.

What could be better than summer reading?  It increases knowledge on a range of subjects, improves vocabulary and enhances imagination.  Studies show that children who don't read during summer vacation lose as much as 20% of the educational gains they made during the school year.  Here are some websites to help your child enjoy reading this summer. -- Spartanburg Library - summer reading   -- Cowpens Library Summer reading


Each year, SC schools receive a state and a federal report card.  In October, we received an “A” on our federal report card. This week, we learned that Cowpens Elementary School received an EXCELLENT on our state report card. In addition, because of tremendous progress by our students, we also received an EXCELLENT growth rating!

For placing among the highest performing Title I schools, Cowpens Elementary was recognized as a Reward School for Performance. Only 159 elementary schools out of 626 received this distinction.  Cowpens Elementary was also recognized as a Title I Reward School for Progress for substantial academic gains from one school year to the next.  This honor goes to the top 10% of Title I schools statewide.  Only 26 schools made this list with Cowpens being the only one in Spartanburg County.
