ChopChop Magazine for Lowell Families

Today a copy of the most recent ChopChop magazine will be sent home with your student.  Below you will find a letter from our superintendent and wellness director about this initiative. Happy reading (and eating)!

Dear  Lowell School Families,

We are pleased to announce that our Wellness Committee will be expanding the District-wide, 
healthy eating initiative this school year. This initiative will bring exciting events and helpful 
resources to all the families in Watertown, including:

● Continuation of the after-school cooking classes and gardening clubs for 4th and 5th graders

● Implementation of parent workshops and healthy eating events throughout the school year

● Reinforcement of a home-school connection on healthy cooking and eating by distributing 
the award-winning ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families. Thanks to a 
generous grant from Watertown Savings Bank and funding from the PEP Grant, every 
elementary student will receive a copy of ChopChop Magazine for the entire school year 
(Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer). 

● Distribution of lesson plans using ChopChop in the classroom will also be available to all the 
teachers

Based in Watertown, ChopChop’s mission is to inspire and teach kids to cook together with their 
families. We encourage you to look through the magazine with your children and pick a recipe to 
make together at home! 

Please take a few minutes to complete this online survey: 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/watertowncooks  This survey is to help understand your 
family’s current eating habits and how often you cook at home. All answers will remain 
anonymous. There will be a follow-up survey at the end of the school year as well. Complete both 
surveys for a chance to win a Kitchen Essentials gift basket valued at over $100 and other 
prizes!

Here’s to a healthy (and delicious) school year!

Sincerely,

Jean M. Fitzgerald         Donna Ruseckas

Superintendent               Director of Wellness and Extended Services
