PTA President’s Message, Feb 2017

One sees clearly only with the heart.  Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
–The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 Happy February!  February is a month filled with lots to love at Lowell!  There are four great community events this month:

  • Lowell Social Night (a.k.a. Dining for Dollars) at Chipotle on February 8 (4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.), where Chipotle is showing us the love by donating 50% of purchases to Lowell!
  • The beloved Lowell Roller Skate Night, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on February 15, where you can boogie with your little ones!
  • The Science Fair Reception and class walk through on February 21 and 22 where your adorable budding scientists will share their projects.
  • Dad’s Donut Day in the Cafeteria before school on February 24, a cherished Lowell tradition where kids and their dads, grandpas, uncles and friends can bond over free donuts!

I hope you have the chance to enjoy these great events with your family!

Plus, February has two long weekends with two no school Mondays – February 13 and 20 – so more time to spend with your loved ones!  And we can’t forget February 14 – always a fun day at Lowell, with the outpouring of affection – and candy – that makes the day a lasting memory!  Don’t forget, your Sea Star can wear a red, pink, while or other Valentine’s Day-themed shirt to school on February 14.

Looking forward, preparation is beginning for three much-loved Lowell events: 1) the Variety Show on March 1 and 2, where our Sea “Stars” will showcase their talents, 2) the Carnival, coming June 3, and (drumroll!!) 3) the return of the Spring Fling (Spring Party/Spring Auction) after a two year absence, a totally awesome ‘80s themed party and fundraiser to raise money for Lowell technology that will take place on April 7 at the Grand and feature ‘80s icon DJ Richard Blade.

Finally, February is a great time to show your love to the Lowell community.  The PTA’s nominating committee is working to craft a slate of volunteers for the 2017-18 PTA Executive Board.  If you are interested in helping Lowell as a Board member, contact Melissa Sipowicz at  Either way, drop by the PTA meeting on February 28 meeting to learn what is going on!  And deepest thanks in advance to our future Lowell volunteer leaders who are committing to help Lowell continue to be the best.

Have a love-ly month!

Principal’s Message, Feb 2017

Lowell Families,

For those of you that have visited the office over the last couple of weeks, I’m sure that you have noticed the construction on our front hallway wall. This has been a long time in planning and we are very excited. This open space in the wall gives us the ability to have a clear line of sight to the front door as well as immediate service as it relates to sign in for visitors and our wonderful parent volunteers. Over the next couple of months we will be adding a counter and a sliding window. Our IOA, Diane Eley, will be moving her desk up to the window and we will have more streamlined assistance to the many visitors that we have at Lowell.

We hope that you are as excited as us as we not only increase the level of safety at Lowell, but also continue the “customer service” that we have all become accustomed to.

Lester “Dow” Lawson
