Dear Lowell Families, Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Lowell Elementary School! It is a tremendous honor and pleasure to continue as our school's principal. As we move forward with developing an academic, social and emotional foundation for our students that leads towards a lifetime of success and a love of learning, I am confident that our teachers, families and staff will work tirelessly to make this the best year in our school's distinguished history! We are indeed fortunate to have a dedicated group of teachers and certificated personnel who are masters of their craft, and whose high expectations for our students is only equaled by their high expectations for themselves as professionals and colleagues. Futhermore, our support staff - everyone from our front office, to our recreation aides, to our instructional aides, to our Kids' Club staff, to our custodians - takes an enormous amount of pride in our school. Yes, it is hard to be humble when you are a Lowell Sea Star. The immeasurable time, treasure and talents provided by our Families to support our school are also a clear indication of the trust you place in us, as well as a sense that everyone has a tremendous amount to contribute to our school's success. Together, everyone takes personal responsibility for not only providing a quality education, but also ensuring that we maintain a safe, secure environment for children to thrive in each and every day. Families entrust us with the most precious thing in your life - literally a piece of your heart and soul - and our staff honors this by bringing our best to the campus when we walk through our gates and begin the instructional day. There is nothing that we cannot accomplish when we work together, trust each other, and give selflessly to provide all children with a key to opening the door to the American Dream. Enrichment programs that touch all students - including physical education, the technology lab, field trips, SMART Boards, and the arts - are all integral to a well-rounded education. Our PTA - comprised of nearly 700 teachers, family members, support staff, and community members -- makes all of these things, and so much more, possible. New families: I strongly encourage you to join (and for continuing families to "re-up") as official paid members of our nationally acclaimed PTA. Everyone's input, involvement and voice is important, and our PTA works very hard to support our school's core values of inclusion, collaboration and nurturing an effective school/family partnership. Thank you, in advance, for your thoughtful consideration! With Sincere Gratitude and Appreciation, Sam Platis, Principal firstname.lastname@example.org
