Thank you to all parents who joined us for Parent-Teacher Conferences!

A Big 'Laps for Lowell' Thank You!

Thank you to all who participated in the Laps for Lowell fundraiser!! We are thrilled to report that thanks to your generosity we earned over $13,000 for the Lowell PTA with this fundraiser!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are so grateful for each and every one of you that contributed to make this event so successful and we are pleased to be able to start the year in solid financial shape. This will really allow us to continue to support the school in so many meaningful ways.


The kids had a great time completing their laps (and survived the heat!) and we have had a great time rewarding them for their efforts. Today we celebrated the top fundraising teams at out Lowellpalooza lunch time festival. We also awarded the raffle prizes and announced our top fundraising individuals. Thank you to all the families, teachers and staff that supported this fundraiser!


We would also like to acknowledge the following businesses that supported this event by donating raffle prizes:


BR Ryall YMCA • Chicago Ninja Academy • Chicago Steel Hockey Team • Goldfish Swim School • Kid’s Science Labs • Moves Dance Studio • Naperville Yard • Old Republic Title • Rockin’ Jump• Sky High Sports • Wheaton College • Wheaton Park District • Wheaton Sports Center

We thank you for not double parking on Illinois or in the car line during arrival and dismissal to keep the children safe. We also thank all families for crossing Illinois Street at the corner. Safety for the children is our top priority!

Lowell Traffic Patterns & Pets

New to Lowell or need a refresher on the traffic patterns? Click here for a map and reminders. As a reminder, all vehicle traffic will be on Willow Street. Children who walk to school may enter on President Street, through the main entrance on Illinois Street or the Sun Porch entrance off of the field on the west side of the school.


We also ask that you not bring pets on school property before school, after school or to events during the school day. While many of us have loving pets that are truly family members, we do have students and adults with fears and allergies. Likewise, we have also witnessed calm family pets react unpredictably when startled, even with other pets or people they know. We thank you for your understanding of this.


Thank you for helping us in our top priority of keeping your children safe!
