A NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Lowell Families,

We have two weeks left before winter break; that is hard to believe! These last two weeks are very important weeks! Teachers are completing end of quarter and end of unit assessments at every grade level. These assessments are important as they allow us to monitor student growth and achievement. Student report cards will be distributed when we return from winter break.


Please see below for some reminders of upcoming events:

  • Wednesday, December 12 is a late start day. Bus pick ups will be one hour later than normal time. School starts at 9:30am.

  • The 3rd Grade Holiday Program is on Thursday, December 13 at 7:00pm in the Lowell Gym. We hope to see many families there.

  • Our CORE Celebration is scheduled for Friday, December 21. Students will be able to spend their corebucks that they have earned over this quarter on all of the fun and games! We are in need of parent volunteers to help during CORE Carnival. Look for a sign-up sheet to come home soon.

  • Our last day of school before winter break is Friday, December 21. Students return from winter break on Monday, January 7.

Have a great weekend!


Mrs. Griffin

FRIENDLY TIPS AND REMINDERS

* Students are expected to be at school on time every day. Our tardy bell rings at 8:40am. Please plan accordingly to ensure your child is in his/her classroom by 8:40am each day.

* If your child will be absent due to illness or late due to a doctor's appointment, please call the front office at 317-532-3900 to report the absence or late arrival. This helps to ensure your child's safety. Please bring a doctor's note to document the excused absence.

* Dismissal is at 3:40pm. If you are picking up your child from school, please follow our car rider procedures.

* When arriving at Lowell, please make sure you stop first at the front desk. All visitors MUST sign in and put on a Lowell Badge while in the building. Safety is our top priority for our students. This process allows us to ensure every child's safety during the school day. Thank you for your cooperation.

* Parents are always welcome at Lowell! If you would like to visit your child's classroom, please call or email your child's teacher or Mrs. Griffin so we can make arrangements and ensure that the students will be in the classroom at the time of your visit. We encourage you and welcome you to always be a part of your child's learning, and we truly value your involvement!

* Please remember that our Lowell Campus is a smoke-free campus. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on Lowell grounds. This includes smoking in your cars while on the Lowell Campus.
