I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing week off of school. It was wonderful to see the smiling faces return to school this morning. The traffic in the drop and go lane seems to be a little lighter now that many people have returned to walking and biking to school. Please remember to watch in crosswalks around the school for students that may be walking to school. I have also noticed that many families are walking dogs to school. I am a dog owner and dog lover but, please remember that dogs are not allowed on school grounds according to town ordinances. If you are walking to school with puppies please try to use the sidewalks across from the building so that the areas in front of the stairs and ramps are clear for students.
Homework Club and Cooking Club:
The grade 3, 4 and 5 Homework Club will no longer be meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The cooking club for grades 4 and 5 will meet on Tuesdays for the next six weeks. Students that have been selected for the cooking club received permission slips to be signed and returned.
This Tuesday, April 28th, from 7:00 -8:00 there will be a site-council meeting in the Lowell School Library. We will finalize the school improvement goals for the 2015-2016 school year and discuss action steps for each goal.
Please visit the Lowell School PTO website: http://www.lowellpto.org/ for updates on PTO events and fundraisers.
Lowell School Yard Sale: If you are doing any "spring cleaning" consider donating items to the Lowell PTO's Yard Sale. On May 16th, as part of the Watertown Town-Wide Yard Sale the Lowell PTO will be hosting a sale on the front lawn of the school. The proceeds from the sale will benefit the Lowell PTO. We will be collecting Sports Equipment, children's clothing, toys, games, books, bikes, strollers. As you are cleaning out from this awful winter, please set your things aside to donate! Please be on the look out for more information.
Box Tops: Correction: The Box Tops contest ends April 30th. Here are the current class totals. Thank you to all of the families who donated. This is a great way for our PTO to earn money.
Have a great week!
