The Great Kindness Challenge is coming this week!!!

On Monday, your child(ren) will bring home information about the Great Kindness Challenge. This is one school week devoted to performing acts of kindness. After learning about this from another school district, we decided there's no better time to spread kindness in the Lowell community! You can see more about the Great Kindness Challenge movement here.

Plans are underway for this year's Jamboree!

Jamboree will be held on Friday, March 4th, from 5pm-8pm. Jamboree is a carnival-themed fun fair for the whole family. Mark your calendars, and come join us for games, prizes, food, music, and friends!

We are looking for new or gently used items that can be re-purposed as Jamboree prizes. A box will be in the front office from Friday, January 8th through the month of February to collect prize donations.

We are happy to accept stickers, bouncy balls, Happy Meal toys, books, matchbox cars, pencils, figurines, etc.

We will also be collecting large baskets to use for the Jamboree classroom raffle baskets.

Interested in volunteering to help with the event? Contact Andrea Koziarz (andrea@koziarz.com) or Kristen Moore (kristenmoore107@gmail.com).

Thank you for your support!
