Monday Message 4/6

Good Morning Lowell Families,

The students at the Lowell School were very excited to reach their goal of reading 5,000 hours during the month of March.  The students in Pre-k through fifth grade read a total of 5,546 hours.  To celebrate this accomplishment we had a special assembly from Jim Parks of Wingmasters.  He brought five birds of prey and did an educational presentation for all of the students.  Ask your children about the American Kestrel, the Peregrine Falcon, the Screech Owl, the Barred Owl, and the Red Tail Hawk they met today.  Mr. Parks was amazed at what a respectful audience the students were and about the knowledge they had about animals.  I will be updating the homepage soon with more pictures of these magnificent creatures.
