Message from the Principal

Lowell Families,
September has come and gone and with it quite a bit has happened with many events on the horizon. We had a wonderful Back to School Night that gave our teachers the opportunity to showcase all of the wonderful things that are in store for our students this coming year. October brings with it our Pumpkin Carving Night on Thursday, October 27th. What a great event that has our students dressing up in costumes and carving pumpkins while a DJ plays music that the kids dance to.
We are extremely lucky to have such an active PTA that plans and supports wonderful events such as the Pumpkin Carving Night and our Jog-A-Thon fundraiser in November. These are events that truly define our Lowell community.
September went quickly and I’m sure that October will as well. Our school year is in full swing and we are excited for what is to come.
Lester “Dow” Lawson


Message from the PTA President

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!

 Thanks so much to all the amazing volunteers who make these events and fundraising happen and who showed their commitment to Lowell by attending our first PTA meeting of the year last month.  Truly, every penny, every membership, and every minute you can give matters so much!
See you at school!
