Welcome Lowell Families to the 2017/2018 school year. I hope you all enjoyed the summer and are ready to be back. We have a wonderful new Principal, Ms. Phelan and some new faces on our teaching staff and the school had new rugs installed over the summer, big thanks to our awesome custodians, Wayne, Tony and Linda for all their hard work in preparing for today!
With a new school year brings a lot of excitement, new teachers, new friends, and new routines. For some Lowell families this is their first year at the school so it also brings questions for instance, How do we find out about snow days? How do we buy lunch? Can I volunteer in the school?
For all of us that have been at the Lowell we know the answers, but to many those are things that aren't all that obvious. So I've created a Lowell new family guide (thanks to our Cunniff friends for letting me steal their idea) that you can look through to help answer some of these questions. If you have a question this doesn't answer, let us know. We'll try and get the answer for you and add it to this guide. Click here for the guide.
When I was a new parent, I always found it difficult knowing when things were scheduled to happen, when is picture day or the next early release? Calendars that are available to check; the Lowell PTO calendar is up to date, as is the Lowell School calendar. The District calendar is great to see what is going on at all the schools, that is also up to date.
The Lowell PTO website is a great source of quick information, up to date and with a section on the home page with upcoming events. The web URL is www.lowellpto.org.
A couple of things that are coming up that you can mark down:
