Monday Message 1/26

Good Morning Lowell Families,

The forecast is calling for lots of snow this week.  Please check local news outlets for updates on school closings or delays. 

As of 9:00 AM on Monday- Courses for Kids for Monday afternoon have been cancelled and Boys and Girls Night at the Hosmer School this evening have been cancelled.  

Perseverance

The core value we are focussing on for the month of January is perseverance.  This is an important trait for all New Englanders to develop to survive the long winters.  Perseverance is also an important value for students.  Learning involves working through problems and using what you already know to help you figure out something new.  This happens in pre-K when students are trying to balance blocks and build a tall tower or in fifth grade when students are solving complex multi-step word problems.  The learning doesn't happen just by getting the right answer.  Important learning happens with each incorrect answer along the way.  

International Night


This Friday, January 30th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM is International Night at the Lowell School.  International Night is an event that celebrates the diversity of the population at the Lowell School.  There will be tables representing different countries and foods from different cultures.  Please join us on Friday evening for this event.

Have a great week.  Be safe in the storm. 

Ms. Donovan
