Ask any Lowell student what one of their favorite days of the year at Lowell is.......and they will say Discovery Day!

Discovery Day will be on Tuesday, May 31st this year and plans are underway! Discovery Day is held during the last week of school and it is an opportunity for our students to grow, stretch, learn, discover, and try activities by introducing them to new and unique learning opportunities.
During the morning of Discovery Day, students will participate in three activities. Discovery Day is a collaborative effort made up of parent/family volunteers, teachers, staff and some outside vendors.


We need leaders, co-leaders, assistants, and helpers to make this day a success! If you have a hobby, talent or special interest you would like to share with the students OR if you just want to be part of a really fun morning at Lowell please join us! All are welcome and appreciated! Volunteer sign up sheets have been sent home. The sign up sheet is also attached here for your review.


Please return them to the office by Tuesday, April 12th. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Razzino (babsrazz@mac.com) or Mary Howard (mary@welovesoy.com).

Also, the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon will take place immediately after Discovery Day again this year. Please join us as we honor all of the volunteers (classroom, LLC, PTA, etc) that have worked so hard to make it another great year at Lowell.
