Monday Message 5/4

Good Morning Lowell Families,

This week is teacher appreciation week.  I believe that we have a lot to appreciate here at the Lowell School.  Our teachers are dedicated and care deeply about the success of our students.  Every day brings new challenges but the teachers at the Lowell School continue to work hard to make the Lowell School a welcoming and safe place for all children.

This weekend the Watertown Community Foundation sponsored "Watertown Helps Out" a day of community service.  In that spirit a small group worked to repair the fence around the Lowell Learning Garden that was damaged by this winter's snow fall.  Thank you to Gideon and Vivian Schreiber and Judy Fallows for helping to get the garden straightened up and ready for spring.

This Week:

On Tuesday and Wednesday the students in Grade 5 will be taking the Science, Technology and Engineering MCAS exam.  Students need to be on time for school.  Testing will begin first thing in the morning.  Next week students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 will complete the second part of the PARCC testing on Monday 5/11, Wednesday 5/13 and Thursday 5/14.

PTO Updates:

The next PTO meeting is Tuesday, May 12th at 7:00 PM in the Library.

The PTO is organizing a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday, May 7th.  Please contact Pamela Dennison if you'd like to donate a food item, raffle item or money (checks payable to Lowell Elementary PTO): pamela.dennison123@gmail.com.
