Thank you

As the 2013-2014 year comes to close, we want to thank Mrs. Melton, teachers, staff, community, students and parents for making Lowell a special school. The partnership with our PTA has been remarkable and has created the opportunity to do many great things from improving technology to awesome assemblies and fields trips as well as the countless other programs and volunteer hours that help our students learn and grow in the best possible environment.
As our term comes to end, we especially want to thank you for your continued support and allowing us to serve on the executive committee for the last two years.
We hope you continue to be involved and support Lowell school and the Lowell PTA as we approach another school year. We leave you in excellent care with the newly elected PTA officers.

Have a great summer!
Alli and Christy
