Parents, please mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 7th. We will be celebrating Cowpens Elementary School's thirteenth annual "Walk to School Day". This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to enjoy walking to school in a safe environment. Due to safety concerns, we will not actually be walking to school. The plan is to have the event on campus. If you are interested in participating in this event, we will begin signing parents in at 7:05 AM in the school lobby. At 7:10 AM, we will move to the track in back of our school to start our walk. After several laps, we will provide apples for a snack, and students will then be dismissed to class.

If you received special permission from our District Office for your child to enroll at Cowpens Elementary School last year, you MUST contact 279-6021 before you can complete the enrollment process for this year.
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.
