Monday Message 3/30

Good Morning Lowell Families,

The students at the Lowell School have been very busy reading.  Each hoot sheet they complete represents two hours of reading and earns a feather for the owl.  The owls wings are growing large!

The school needs to read 5,000 hours to earn a special assembly.  So far the students have read 1,912 hours.  We need to do a lot more reading in the final weeks.  Keep reading!

Early Release Friday:
This Friday, April 3rd is an early release day.  It was changed from a no school day due to the amount of snow days.  Students will be served lunch and dismissed at 12:15. There is NO L.E.D.P.

Reports Cards will go home this Thursday, April 2nd.  Conference appointment times will also go home this day.  Evening conferences are scheduled for Thursday, April 9th.  Afternoon conferences are scheduled from Monday 4/13 to Thursday 4/16.  These will be early-release days.  Students will be dismissed at 12:15 and lunch will be served.

CYBER SAFETY (Parent & tweens/teens)
Wednesday, April 1st 7:00 PM @ Watertown Middle School
Kristen Noto - DA's Office

As a Middlesex County Assistant District Attorney, Kristen Noto has had firsthand experience prosecuting perpetrators and working with victims of online criminal behavior. She will hold a frank discussion about how risky online behaviors can negatively affect the emotional well-being, health and safety of our children. After her talk, she, along with a panel of staff members from the Watertown Public Schools, will help us plan guidelines for our children's online use so that we can better ensure that they are safe while they are digitally connected.

The next PTO meeting is Tuesday, April 14th.  
Check out the PTO website for information about on-going fundraisers.  

Have a great week!

Ms. Donovan
