Rachel Cowan

Welcome to 1st Grade!

A little about me... I am married to my wonderful husband, Austin, and we have one beatuful daughter, Kaylyn. I graduated from SouthPicture of Mrs. Cowanwestern Oklahoma State University with my degree in Elementary Education. I taught at Centennial in second grade for two years before my husband took a job in Tyler, TX. I took the year off when we moved and spent time with our daughter! Just 10 short months later we moved right back to Mustang, OK when my husband was offered at position at OU. I knew immediately I wanted to be back at Centennial doing the very  thing I love, teaching! I am so excited to get back in the classroom, especially teaching first grade! I love working with kids but in my off time I enjoy doing ANYTHING outdoors. We love sports (BOOMER) and enjoy cooking out and watching whatever sporting event is taking place that day!
 
You will be able to find a lot of important information here on my website but also be sure to check your child's binder for important notes that may come home.  
 
Feel free to contact me by phone, email or Classdojo! I try to respond as quickly as possible during school hours.

Birthday Information

Birthday Snacks

Student birthdays will be recognized once a month.  All students recognizing a birthday for that month, will bring their treat the same day.  We have decided to recognize birthdays at the end of each month. If you would like to bring a treat, please let me know ahead of time so I know how many to expect. Also, please remember there might be multiple people brigning things so please send MINI cookies/cupcakes or another small treat. Other suggestions are fruit gushers, fruit roll-ups, little debbies, and mini brownie bites.  Parents are welcome to send snacks with their child the morning of the designated day or they may drop them off at the office before 9:00 am.  Please do not feel obligated to send anything. It is only by choice. We appreciate your understanding in this change.  I have attached a list of dates for our birthday snacks.

August Birthdays – August 30th

September Birthdays – September 27th

October Birthdays – October 25th

November Birthdays – November 22th
