Greetings Lowell Families,
I hope that this newsletter finds you enjoying a fun, healthy, and safe summer season! We are looking forward to seeing you and your family soon.
The 2021-2022 school year will be a year of coming together. There will be many opportunities to do just that starting this month! When we do come together for events such as Meet-Your-Teacher/Back-to-School Night, it is important to continue to acknowledge a person's personal space, proper hygiene, and health and safety, such as staying home when you are not feeling well. It is our goal to remain open with a high attendance rate of students and staff throughout the coming year. It will take our Lowell community to make this happen.
In the spirit of coming together, please take a look at the dates of important events offered below. We hope to see you at these events, including our PTO meetings! These meetings are a great time to meet other families, hear from students, and share your voice.
As always, please feel free to reach out to our office with any questions that come about. We are looking forward to seeing your child(ren) soon at Lowell!
