Final Exam Info

Lowery's Exam Schedule is purposely different from AHS's. You can find their Exam Schedule on their website.

Some things to remember:

Every student must take every final - No Exceptions!

Tuesday through Friday are early release days. Buses will run as normal on the earlier schedule.

Students are never allowed to take exams early.

Students are not allowed to visit other campuses on early release days.

Eagle Edge Store

Need to do some holiday shopping for that Allen Eagles fan in your life? Stop by Eagle Edge, the student-run retail shop located inside Allen High School. Eagle Edge will stay open until 6:30 p.m. every Thursday until December 19 (excluding Thanksgiving break). Enter through the PAC entrance and shop for shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, home decor and other Allen-themed gifts. Remember to bring your AISD badge, as Eagle Edge offers a 15% employee discount.

In addition to staying open late, Eagle Edge will offer special sales each Thursday (cannot be combined with the employee discount). This week, all blue items will be marked 25% off. On December 5, all Nike items will have a 25% discount.

Happy shopping!

Choir News

I want to let you know about some individual honors that several of our Lowery choir students have earned this fall.

In October, 30 of our students sang in auditions for the high school All-Region Choir. Ten of those students earned places in the Region Choir.

They are:

Sarah Brunone

Audrey Clevenger

Rahee Ghayal

Dynis Hill

Braden Hines

Jessica Jang

Rhea Kanuparthi

Vedant Singhania

Jayne Thomas

Nathan Wright

Dynis Hill and Sarah Brunone ranked high enough to earn the privilege to audition for the Area Choir in November.

Sarah ranked 3rd in that audition (with 10th, 11th, and 12th graders) and will audition for the All-State Choir in January.

I am VERY proud of these students. Please congratulate them when you get the chance.

Thank you for supporting all of our kids.

Michael Bryson

Lowery Choir Director

Only family can drop off lunches to students. Thank you!

Picking up Students during the School Day

Our process for checking out a student during the school day is as follows:

You are welcome to send a signed note with your student, stating the time you will be picking them up. The student shows the note to their teacher at that time, then they will be released to go to their House Office to sign out. After they sign out, they will wait for you in the Reception Lobby. You must come in to the school with your ID and sign your student out.

If they return the same day, you do not have to walk your student back in. They can come in to the Reception Area with their note and then check back in with their House Office. If you have any questions, please contact your student's House Office.

Absence Notes Reminder

When your student will be absent, we would appreciate a call to let us know. The direct line to report absences is 972-360-4892 or you can call the school's main line at 972-396-6975. Always remember to send a note back with your student for the absence to be excused within three days of their return.

Please Help Support Allen Students in Need

The Allen ISD Council of PTAs has launched a new initiative that will support students in need throughout the district. Two Amazon Wishlists have been created for snack items and hygiene products, and all purchased items will be sent directly to the PTA for distribution to the campuses. From there, counselors and nurses will provide the items discreetly to specific students. This initiative will reach every campus in Allen ISD. To browse the wishlists, visit either www.bit.ly/PTAsnacks or www.bit.ly/PTAhygiene. Thank you for your consideration and support.
