Happy spring, everyone!

A big thanks to all the families who came out to Morfire for our Dine-Out event earlier this month. We raised nearly $1,000 for Lowell Elementary. (And the kids loved the cotton candy machine!)

As always, for the latest updates, follow us on Facebook and at www.lowellelementary.org. If you ever have school-related news or events to share, email lowellparents@gmail.com.

5th Grade Promotion Party

The 5th Grade Promotion Party is looking for parent coordinators! Ms. Laura posted this message in the Lowell Parents group on Facebook, just passing it along in case you missed it:

“This is a friendly ask from the 5th grade team at Lowell regarding 5th grade promotion. In the past, parent volunteers have planned a picnic lunch at volunteer park for the 5th grade class, and helped with graduation set-up, food and decorations. I know it’s just March, but I wanted to put it out there for interested families to start thinking about. Promotion to middle school is a big deal and deserves to be celebrated! We cannot make this day special without the help of families. Let me know if you are interested/ able to help!”

You can email Ms. Laura at lmschulz@seattleschools.org.

Move-a-thon school-wide fundraiser, Friday, June 8th

The annual move-a-thon is coming up fast, and we need enthusiastic and motivated parents to help us make it happen. Move-a-thon is our school-wide fundraiser that lets students raise money for their own school, giving everyone a sense of school pride and a super fun time!

If you want to get involved, there are many opportunities—big and small—to help out. Please email Sarah Ross-Viles at sarah.rossviles@gmail.com.

Keep bringing in box tops for Lowell!

Help our school earn cash by clipping Box Tops from participating products and sending them to school. Each one is worth 10¢, and the money goes to Lowell.

Hand in the Box Tops in the designated box in the school office. Questions? Contact Ditte (ditto_dk@yahoo.dk) or visit the Box Tops for Education website.
