Principal's Message

Dear Lowell Families,


It is hard to believe another school year has come to an end!! The 2019-2020 school year has been a memorable one!! We are so proud of our students for having a great year of learning! They have worked hard and persevered through an unusual 4th quarter of school. While the year might not have ended as we would have liked, we still have so many wonderful memories from this year!!


To our Fourth Graders, we are so proud of you as you end your elementary school years! You have shown tremendous leadership and worked so hard over the course of your elementary school years!! We have been very lucky to have you as our students! While we missed out on some of our year-end traditions, please know that you are loved and will always be a part of our Lowell Family! We will miss you, but we also know you are ready for this next chapter in your life! Fifth grade is calling your name, and you’ve got this!! Thank you for all you’ve done for Lowell School and for a great 4th grade year!! Remember, you will always be somebody special at Lowell Elementary School! We wish you the best and know you will make us proud!!


I do have some reminders for parents. Starting Wednesday, June 3rd we will be distributing students’ personal items, including end of year reports cards, and also collecting any textbooks and library books that you might need to return to school via a drive-through service at the Lowell car rider line, which is along the front of the building. Our distribution will be on three dates depending on your students last name. Last names A-M will be Wednesday, June 3rd from 12-6 pm, last names N-Z will be Thursday, June 4th from 12-6 pm, and Friday, June 5th, 9 am-12 pm will be a make up day. Construction is in full swing at our building so please be attentive and mindful of that as you arrive at school. We will have staff directing traffic in the parking lot.


Early in June, we will be mailing grade level summer learning packets to all students in grades K-8. These packets will focus on essential math and reading skills as well as social-emotional skills. Students will receive an incentive for completing their packet upon returning it to school in the fall.


Our current food outreach program will remain the same for the month of June. Tuesdays and Fridays from 11AM - 1PM, and Wednesday from 5:30pm - 7:00pm. Visit our district or school website for locations or see the flyer in this newsletter.


To all of our Lowell Students and Families, thank you for helping make this a great year of learning! Please stay connected over the summer by visiting our district and school websites and by viewing our social media Twitter and Facebook platforms. Please know that our district is working hard to formulate plans and to ensure best decisions are made in regards to the start of our next school year. As back to school information becomes available, we will continue to communicate that to you throughout the summer. We hope you have a fabulous summer break! Play hard and have fun! But always be safe!! We look forward to seeing everyone for the 2020-2021 school year!!


Enjoy your summer! Be safe and take care!!
