Dear Lowell Community,
We have officially completed our first quarter for the 2016-2017 school year. I
look forward to seeing you all this week for parent teacher conferences. We
are hoping to achieve 100% attendance. We have appreciated the team
approach in helping us educate your children. I love parent teacher
conferences, because it gives parents/guardians an opportunity to engage
with your child’s teacher and hear about your student’s academic progress
and areas of need. Conferences also, provide ideas on how you can support
your child’s education from home.
In addition, the 11th month brings us the Fall Dinner and Literacy Night, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and every 4 years,
the US Presidential Election. November also brings cooler weather. It’s important to remind your students to dress for
these cooler days. A friendly reminder regarding school policy which states, “Shorts may be worn to school during the
months of August, September, October, April, May and June.” As a result, students should no longer be wearing shorts
to school. Please help your child come to school dressed for the colder weather. Students will be outside for recess and
before school, as long as the temperature is 20 degrees or above with or without a wind chill. Warm coats, hats and
gloves are encouraged.
There are many events taking place this month. Please make sure to check-out Lowell’s main calendar in order to plan
accordingly. Lowell’s main calendar is located on our school webpage along with many other supportive resources, such
as this letter. Lowell’s webpage can be located by typing in the following address: http://lowell.boiseschools.org. In
closing, thank you for your continued partnership in making our Lowell Community a special place for our students.
