PTO News....A Note from your President
Hello Lowell Families,
Thank you to all that came to Back to School Night! It was great to see everyone again and hopefully you all enjoyed the popcorn :)
We do have our first meeting coming up on September 21st at 6:30pm in the library. We will be going over our proposed budget & calendar. While that may sound boring, we do have a lot of fun activities planned for the year. We need your help and input to make them happen though! Please come and see what we as the PTO all do for our school!
We will have our first fundraiser coming up as well. I'll be sending more information out soon.
Have a great weekend and see you all on Tuesday!

Christmas Clearing Council Application
The 2021 Christmas Clearing Council Client Application is available online! We are grateful for your help in sharing this information with families in your organization who would benefit from our services. Please share the following link, for both Spanish and English applications, with your families. I have also included images you may use in your communications.
Deadline to apply is Monday, Nov. 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
Many thanks, as always, for helping ensure every child has a magical Christmas.
Families may begin applying now. The last application will be accepted at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 15, 2021. Encourage parents to apply NOW and to not wait until the last minute.
If a client moves or changes phone numbers after filling out the application, remind them to contact us with this update as it is imperative sponsors and the office have the correct information to contact the family.
If a family has special circumstances, due to Covid-19 or otherwise, that would be beneficial for us to know about when determining eligibility, please email us at email@example.com. We will combine this information with the client’s application. They MUST STILL fill out an online application or call us to do so over the phone. We understand there may be several reasons a family would qualify this year.
We will accept a family automatically IF they have been a client within the past 2 years AND their information has stayed the same. We will contact the family directly to clarify general information and will contact you, the agency, to help determine income qualification if they are a new client or if they provide information that is contradictory to what is in our database.
New to 2021: if we are contacting you regarding a family, this client has given us permission to work with your organization for the purposes of verifying eligibility. Proof of this permission can be sent to you upon request. Clients are asked to grant permission, or deny, while filling out the application.
Currently, we plan on hosting Toy Shop on December 11. However, we will continue to get as many families sponsored as possible, given the unknowns regarding the pandemic and how that may affect the Toy Shop event. We will communicate with clients and agencies regarding any changes, should there be any, regarding our programming.
If a client is having trouble with or isn’t able to fill out the application, you may fill it out on their behalf as long as the client has given you permission to do so.
Understanding this year continues to present challenges for all, please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. I am available at firstname.lastname@example.org or 262.771.0830.
