Happy autumn! Autumn is when parents, teachers, and children get into the groove of the new school year. And I’m sure we are all ready for some cooler weather, after the scorching hot days of late September! Autumn is also a special time for the Lowell community. Our PTA membership drive is in full swing, with prizes being awarded to classrooms based on the percentage of students with family members who have joined the PTA – the kids are really attuned to their class performance and want those prizes! We are also kicking off several family and community events this month. October 14 is our family pizza and movie night – featuring the movie The Croods.
If your Sea Star is artistic, think about entering the National PTA arts competition, the Reflections program. More information can be found within this month’s Lowell Log – and entries are due October 21. October also is the time for individual and class pictures, special Red Ribbon Week activities, and the kick off for this year’s Meet the Masters art program (spotlighting M.C. Escher) and our Dining for Dollars program (at George’s Greek Café on October 6). As Halloween approaches, so does another beloved Lowell tradition, Pumpkin Carving Night on October 27. Truly, Lowell is just a great place to be in October!
