Monday Message 3/9

Good Morning Lowell Families,


School Calendar

The School Committee voted last Monday on a revised school calendar.  Friday, April 3rd has become an early release day rather than a no school day.  If there are NO OTHER snow days the last day of school will be Monday, June 29th.  Please use the following link for an updated copy of the school calendar.  2014-2015 Revised School Calendar.

Lowell Reading Challenge 2015: Birds of a Feather- Reading Together

This week is the beginning of our month-long reading challenge.  Students at the Lowell school work together  to try to read 5,000 hours.  Students will bring home reading logs that they can use to track their minutes of reading.  If we reach our goal the school will earn a special assembly.  Check out the video that students watched as a kick-off to the reading challenge.


PARCC Parent Information

Students in grades 3-5 persevered through their PARCC practice tests last week.  There is a link to information about the PARCC exams for parents on the Watertown Public Schools homepage.  Here is a link to the slides from the PARCC Parent Coffee at the Lowell School.  Additional information can be found at the PARCC website.

Arrival Time and Students Entering the Building

The temperatures are warmer this week and we are returning to our regular arrival procedures.  Students will not be permitted to enter the building prior to 8:05 unless they are attending a before-school program. Students entering the building after 8:20 will be marked tardy.

PTO

There is a PTO meeting this Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM.  Participating in the PTO is a great way to be involved in the school.  Please check-out a meeting and see how you can support our students.

Zumbathon

This Sunday, March 15th the PTO is sponsoring a Zumbathon from 2:00 PM- 4:00 PM!!  This is a family-friendly event and a chance for parents and kids to get some exercise.  The instructors will include Ms. Jacobson and Ms. Peca from the Lowell staff and parent, Veronica Castillo.

Have a great week!

Ms. Donovan
