Welcome to Lowell Elementary School!

As you settle in to your new home or simply prepare for a new year, we want to take a moment to introduce ourselves and let you know that Lowell Elementary has an amazing Parent Teacher Association (“PTA”). The PTA is run by parent volunteers and relies on the support of parents, teachers, and community members in order to be successful.

The Lowell PTA provides valuable and successful programs such as the Back to School Social, Battle of the Books, Chess Club, and Reflections. In the past, we have contributed funds toward the purchase of new volleyball standards for P.E., a new kiln for the art department, and classroom iPads. We also supplement and reinforce classroom concepts by funding field trips at all grade levels and organizing fun programs for students and families like Culture Fest and Discovery Day. With the help of parents, teachers, and the community, great work is being done to benefit students at Lowell.

Each year our goal is to have all parents join the PTA. The cost is $12 for an individual or $20 per family (2 adults). Your membership includes email alerts regarding important dates and events and a printed school directory. You can join and pay online at this page.

If you are interested in becoming more involved, please join us at our monthly meetings. The meetings are open to everyone and there is free childcare available. Our first meeting is Friday, September 8th at 9:30am in the Art Room. We will alternate between morning and evening meetings. For more information about the PTA you can also visit our website at www.lowellpta.org or reach out to us at president@lowellpta.org.

We look forward to a great school year and getting to know your family!

Sincerely,
Debbie Noonan and Kristen Lenhardt
Lowell PTA Co-Presidents

Laps for Lowell 2016

Last week we kicked off our major Fall Fundraiser – Laps for Lowell. The best part about this fundraiser is 100% of the monies raised goes directly to the PTA! Our goal is $13,000 this year, which will allow us to make a SIGNIFICANT contribution (inside or outside) to Lowell! The event promotes, fitness, teamwork and fun!! Students will participate in running relays during their regularly scheduled PE time.

We will also be holding a raffle with fun prizes from the Kane County Cougars, Chicago Bears, White Sox, Prairie Path Books, Wheaton Park District, BR Ryall YMCA, Wheaton College, Catigny Golf, Rockin’Jump, Kids Science Labs and much, much more! Raffle tickets will be earned based upon the donations that the students bring in; however, each student will receive one raffle ticket just for participating. In addition, every student who collects $300 or more in donations will win their choice of a Kindle Fire, an iPod Shuffle or an Ozobot robot! And students who collect donations of $500 or more will win a GoPro Hero action camera!

The event will be held during the students’ PE time on Thursday, September 29th. They will be completing the event in their PE squads. If you’d like to help us with this event we will need parent volunteers on the day of the event. We will need people for the AM class times (9 am – 12 pm) as well as PM (1:00 pm – 3:30 pm) class times. If you are interested in helping, please email us at lapsforlowell@gmail.com and let us know your preferred time.
