PTA Teacher Money

Some teachers still have funds available from PTA! As a reminder, teachers who are at Lowell full-time receive $100 and teaches who are at Lowell part-time receive $50. If you think you might have money to spend, please verify the amount with Cathy Cebry in person or by email next week.

Congrats to Sage Youngstedt & Denise Uthe, our Lunch & Learn Starbuck's Card winners! Look for your cards next week! Thanks to all who shared ideas.

Please review the Memo to stay current on building parent communication & events!

It is important that you read & know the information that is shared with our families. Information in the Memo is not necessarily duplicated here.

2015-16 Staffing Update

Alyssa Lueondee will join us full-time at Lowell next year in the EL department. This year she was at Washington and here at Lowell.

Happy Birthday!

Celebration of Learning Assembly

We'll hold a Celebration of Learning Assembly on the last day of school (June 8) at 9:30 a.m. This should take no more than 45 minutes. Dr. Schuler will also be joining us for this event. There will be an opportunity for each grade level to share, as we did last year. I encourage you to include children in the sharing. Along with that, each grade will have a slide on which to insert photos that will be up when you share.

Please let me know one person per grade level who would like the editing rights for that slide deck. I will share as I receive names.

Please consider writing a post for our blog!!

So much great learning is happening!! You can also encourage a student or parent to share OR comment on an existing post!! Thanks to the 5th grade for our newest posts!
