Lowell School Battle of the Books 2016-2017
Great news, Lowell readers: Battle of the Books will return to Lowell for the 2016 -2017 school year! Battle of the Books is a Wheaton Public Library-sponsored program and is open to all interested readers who will be 4th and 5th graders next school year. Participants read a minimum of 25 books off the library-provided Battle booklist and then meet weekly with teammates and coaches starting in the fall to prepare to compete against other Wheaton elementary schools on their knowledge of their books. Battles against the other schools are held at the library after school during the months of January and February; each school will participate in about 8 battles. Registration forms and the reading list went home with eligible participants this week.
If your child is interested, send the form back into their teacher by May 20th or contact Brigid Coleman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rachel Rusin (email@example.com) with any questions. Check out the reading list here: http://www.wheatonlibrary.org/sites/default/files/kids/BOB-Booklist-2017.pdf
Classroom Planning for 2016-17
Thank you for respecting the many complex factors that go into setting all students up for a wonderful school year!
Our lost and found racks are overflowing!
Please have your child look through the lost and found and claim what is rightfully theirs. Periodically, these clothing items are sorted and either donated or discarded. At the end of the day on Monday, May 23rd, the lost and found rack will be cleared.
