Welcome to our Cowden-Herrick Unit 3A Web Site
Home of the Hornets
I would like to welcome and thank all of our students, parents, staff, and stakeholders here at Cowden-Herrick. This year is going to be very exciting for all of us. We have now made the transition to learning centers. We will house K-5 grades at our Herrick facility and grades 6-12 at our Cowden facility. We here at Cowden-Herrick believe we will be able to give our students so much more socially and academically to further enhance their lives and prepare them for their futures.
Parents, I would like to take a moment to thank you for all that you do for your students, school, and community. Our success depends on our joint efforts. We invite you to be a close partner with the C-H staff in your child’s education and hope to see you at the school often.
I know we (students, staff, parents, administration, and community) all share a common goal, and that goal is to provide the best education possible for our students. It will take each and every one of us to ensure our mission is accomplished. Education is not just about information we obtain and store from books, it is equally important to learn and obtain social skills, manners, work ethic, honor, character, dependability, and good citizenship.
Cowden-Herrick Unit 3A will endeavor to continue to strive for excellence in both areas of academics and extra-curricular events. It is a known fact that both build upon each other. The actions and efforts we place in one often parallels and reflects the outcomes in the other. We at Cowden-Herrick Schools have a tradition for not settling for anything but first in both.
I cannot express enough the dedication and determination your Cowden-Herrick staff has displayed to ensure each and every student receives the best education possible. It has been, and shall always be, our goal to ensure our students the best school experience, and opportunity for success.
Please feel free to contact our staff by e-mail or phone. We welcome your input and any questions you may have about your school.
