The Lowell Student Council is sponsoring a canned food drive again this year. Our food drive began on November 17 and ends on December 12. All canned foods will be given to families in need, Please send only canned or boxed food—NO GLASS PLEASE. Thanks for helping those who are less fortunate.
As many of you may have heard, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) released and approved school letter grades this week. Lowell Elementary received an “A” Grade from the IDOE! We are very excited about and proud of this accomplishment! We could not be more proud of our students, staff, and families! An “A” Grade truly reflects all of the hard work, effort, and dedication to excellence demonstrated by staff and students! You should be very proud of your children and their accomplishments!
As often as weather permits, we will go outside for recess. Therefore, it is important that the children wear apparel that will permit sufficient warmth against cooler temperatures. Children are
expected to go out for recess unless they are recovering from a recent illness. Any request for extended time of staying in from recess must be accompanied with a doctor’s statement.
For students, one of the College and Career Ready standards’ most important new requirements is that correct answers alone will not be enough. Correct answers are very important, but along with them there is a new set of “mathematical practices” that teachers will expect from students. This is part of their preparation for 21st century jobs. More information>>>.
You are invited to be a PAC Parent!
Does your child ever take too much time to do homework… need an extra boost of self-esteem…use social media…or choose not to follow your directions? As a parent, do you ever feel like you could use some support from other parents who have the same concerns with their children as you? If so, you are encouraged to register for our upcoming PAC (Parents are the Core) sessions. Throughout the 2014-15 school year, six sessions will be offered for parents. Topics include: how to determine what makes your child special and strategies for building these strengths, homework tips, discipline, your child and social media, and information Warren Township parents need to know. The sessions will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at school throughout the school year. Free supervised activities will be offered for children, ages 5-12, who attend with their parents. PAC Kids is open only to children whose parents are attending PAC. Activities will include crafts, computer games and activities, game nights, gym activities, fun projects, snacks, and entertainment. If you are unable to attend the session at our school, the topics will be offered at every other Warren Township elementary and intermediate academy.
