Weekly Message

I hope you have all been safe and with power through the storm this weekend. I have heard that many of you have been at the Lowell sledding! It is going to be a short week.  We have a delayed opening on Tuesday, February 12th. School will start at 10:15 am for students.  Please allow extra time for drop off and dismissal, as the narrow streets and parking ban will most likely slow things down. Please do not park in teacher parking lots, as they are strictly for school staff use.

PTO Meeting

The PTO will meet this Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00 pm in the Lowell lounge. All are invited. Allison Donovan, elementary curriculum coordinator, will be talking about Destination Imagination-an exciting, team based problem solving competition that we may bring to the Lowell!

Spirit Day
Has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 14th. Students are invited to wear red or pink to celebrate and optional donations will be accepted to benefit the American Heart Association.


Grade 2 Parent Coffee
There will be a principal's coffee for parents of students in grade 2 on Thursday, February 28th at 8:30 am in the Lowell lounge.  We will be discussing many topics: curriculum, instruction, assessment, and more!

More to Come..
I am compiling slideshows of all the wonderful happenings at the Lowell...buddy events, assemblies, and more. I hope to have these out soon as I feel my blog needs more "showcasing" to go along with all of the announcements...
