It is hard to believe that this is our last newsletter for the year. I recently came across a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson that struck as I think about the end of one year and the thinking about a new one on the horizon.
As I think about our year, I feel there is so much to be proud and appreciative of in all we have accomplished together. For example:
• I am also incredibly appreciative of the staff; they have all put their heart and souls into each child and their instruction. I know you share in sending the entire staff thanks for all their efforts and care on behalf of children this past year. This is an incredible group of educators!
• I am so proud of the students and their dedication to their learning this year. They have shown us what a powerful learning community can look like. Their thoughtful explorations of all they have been presented, wondered about and studied has been a true joy to witness.
• I am so thankful to our parent community as well. Each of you has given so much to Lowrie through your time, support and sharing your lovely children with us each day. Your work in classrooms, at community events, on the auction and within the PTA has been incredible! On behalf of the entire staff, thank you for all you have done for our school community this year. We feel fortunate to have such great partners!
I hope that your summer is filled with rest, joyous time with families and friends, and finding great books to read!
Take good care,

• Please only use the handicap slots if you have a handicap
• The curbside is meant just for dropping off and picking up
only. It is very important that drivers remain at the wheel
while waiting for you child. I know that it can get busy,
especially during dismissal, but our goal is to keep the curbside
flowing as much as possible.
• Parents parking in the parking lot and not along the curb in
will certainly help with overall flow within the parking lot.
• Parents are certainly welcome to drop-off and pick-up their
children out by the entry plaza in the back of the school. This
can be a more efficient and quick way to collect your child
at the end of the day.
