Monday Message

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today Lidia DiIeso, a Cunniff teacher, began a five week principal internship at the Lowell. We are happy to have Lidia with us as she studies school leadership. You may see her with me directing traffic, or she may reach out to our parent community as she takes on some projects here.

Important PTO update!

We encourage ALL our Lowell families to participate in our 7 Wishes campaign both online and at our live event on March 8.

Join the auction fun at www.32auctions.com/lowell-7-wishes and support our school and together we can break all fundraising records for the Lowell.   Many items are well under $50.00 and with close to 150 items you are sure to find something that suits both your family budget and taste.  

*Over $13,000 value in auction items  
*Over the $7,000 has already been raised 
*Lots of incredible deals still
*Online bidding will end Wednesday 3/6 at 5:00 PM 
*Some of the items will have Final Bidding at the live event on March 8th at Donohue’s, 7 PM.
*Ms. Kaplan will MC our Live Event at Donohue’s on Friday March 8th for a fun evening filled with raffles, wheel of chance, and more. No admission and free appetizers.

100% of the money raised goes directly back into our school for our children. Help us fill these wishes and more!
