Principal's Message

Hello Lowell Families,


While this year was like no other, it was also filled with so many fabulous memories and experiences!! Our students showed resilience, strength, and hard work! We are so proud of each of them!


We wish our fourth grade students the best of luck as they move on to intermediate school next year! It is always a little bittersweet as we will miss them at Lowell but are so proud of them and know they are ready to move on and do great things! What a great group of fourth graders we have this year! Just remember, you will always be a Lowell Leopard and you will always be somebody special!!


I want to extend a thank you to our families as well for all of their support, especially during this unique year. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year! We appreciate your support of Lowell and our students!


And a special thanks goes out to our Lowell Staff! I am so fortunate to work with the best team out there!! They love our students and are committed to providing positive and enriching learning experiences for them! Their efforts this year have just been remarkable! I am so very appreciative of all of their hard work!


We hope all of our students and families have a great summer break! Please rest, relax, and enjoy your time off with your children!


As always, please let us know if you need anything! Thank you for your support of Lowell! Take care and be safe!


Your Principal,

Mrs. Griffin

Reactivating an iPad to Receive Updates ~~ How to Video

In order to help with some of the recurring app issues some students are experiencing with their iPads, we are sharing this quick how-to-video. This reset will put the iPad into the JAMF management system and allow us to ensure there are fewer issues. After resetting the iPad, you MUST go back into Settings on the iPad and add the student's Apple ID. The Apple ID is the student's email and password. If you have any issues, you can contact technology via the helpdesk or the Moorhead Chromedesk.
