Here is what you need to know this week:
Our annual family visit will be this week on Thursday, September 13th at 8:15 am. The family visit is a time where parents may be observers in their students classroom! We hope to see you this Thursday!
New Family Coffee
I would like to invite all parents new to the Lowell to a coffee held immediately after the family visit on Thursday, September 13th at 8:45 am in the Lowell cafeteria. It is a wonderful opportunity to have an orientation to the Lowell and meet other community members. This event is for any one who is new to the Lowell-regardless the grade level. I will be scheduling and publicizing my grade level principal coffees very soon.

School Site CouncilSchool Site Council begins this week. The first meeting will be on Thursday, September 13th at 7:00 pm in the Lowell lounge. A School site council is a decision making body that creates the school improvement plan. It must be comprised of school administrators, parents, and teachers. Subject to open meeting laws, agendas will be posted 48 hours before the meetings. As a parent, being a SSC member is a valuable and important experience. Please let me know if you will be able to sit on site council this year. It is an excellent way to be involved in making improvements to curriculum, instruction, and school culture.
