KIDS State Survey of Kindergarten Readiness
Kindergarten readiness is a key area of focus for the State of Illinois. To this end, school districts in Illinois will begin reporting on 14 readiness measures of the Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) for each kindergartner beginning in the fall of 2017. You can learn more by visiting the KIDS Families Toolkit at www.isbe.net/KIDS.
Box Tops for Education
This year Lowell will once again be collecting Box Tops for Education™. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school earn cash. Last school year, we earned almost $1,000! Box Top coupons are on the packaging of hundreds of participating products that you probably use every day.
All you need to do is cut them off of the box they are on, stick them in a baggie, and send them to school with your child (bags of 50 box tops are preferred).
This year we'll be keeping track of each classroom and the number of Box Tops submitted, so please mark your bags with your child's name and teacher's name. The winning class will win a special prize toward the end of the school year! We'll be tracking progress on the bulletin board outside the office throughout the year.
Thanks to all those who completed a Box Tops collection sheet over the summer — don't forget to turn them in!

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!
