Principal's message

Lowell Families,


I want to give a big shout out to all of our Lowell parents for supporting your children with our first week of Learn at Home. Thank you for helping students access the lessons and for helping them to join their teachers and classmates on their zoom homeroom meetings! Lowell teachers were thrilled to reconnect with and to see all of our students again! I was able to visit classrooms throughout the week as well, and it was so good to see all of those smiling faces again! Please tell your children how proud we are of their hard work and effort in completing lessons and in joining their classrooms during their zoom meetings! We look forward to continuing this momentum into next week! I also want to thank all of our teachers for their hard work in preparing for lessons, communicating with students and families, and connecting with our students this week! I am so proud and honored to work with such dynamite teachers who always go above and beyond! A big thanks to each of them for making this a successful week of learning!


MSD of Warren Township is evaluating our technology needs and how to better serve our families and students of the district. Since iPads and Chromebooks require a WiFi connection, we are interested to know whether our students have access to WiFi at home. We are asking the parents of our K-4 students to please take a few minutes to complete an important survey to help us to better understand the technology needs of our families. Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey for the district. We appreciate your time in doing so. Click on the following link to access this survey:

I also want to remind you that the district has a Learn at Home/eLearning hotline number for families to call for any additional support you might need. That number is 317-608-0545. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the hotline if you have questions or needs related to Learn at Home lessons, devices, or technology. The hotline is available Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm.


And please remember that we are still distributing meals every Tuesday and Friday from 11:00am - 1:00pm at 11 different locations as well as every Wednesday evening from 5:30pm - 7:00pm at Post Road Christian Church and Lakeside Elementary School.


Once again, thank you to all of our students and parents for a great first week of Learn at Home! It was so good to see everyone and to see students connecting again with classmates and teachers! I hope all of you have a great weekend! And we will see everyone in class again next week!
