November 19, 2015
Published by Lowell School & the Lowell PTA
There is no school from Monday, November 23 to Friday, November 27. Classes resume Monday, November 30.
Thank you for considering the opportunities below to help families during the holiday season and for all of the ways you are generous throughout the year!
This holiday season, we ask that you consider your wider neighborhood and community as you prepare and celebrate. Many in our midst feel the extra stress of wanting to prepare a special meal for their loved ones but cannot due to limited resources. As part of the annual Christmas Sharing program, we will be collecting nonperishable food items outside the Main Office from November 30th to December 4th. Please contact Mrs. Sorensen if you have any questions.

Students currently attending a private school and/or home schooled, but reside in the District 200 Attendance Area, are also eligible for PACE Program Testing.
