Classroom Planning for 2016-17

As we prepare for the 2016-17 school year, the creation of classroom assignments begins! As a parent, if you have feedback on the type of learning environment that best suits your child, please feel free to send that to kathleen.melton@cusd200.org. Please send any information to Dr. Melton by Friday, May 13.


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.

Lowell Talent Show Back by Popular Demand!
