The summer days are beginning to end and our Sea Stars are preparing for the beginning of the new school year at Lowell. I hope each of you had an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful summer with family and friends.
My name is Lester “Dow” Lawson and I am the new principal at Lowell Elementary. I am extremely excited to join the Lowell family. Prior to coming to you, I served as the assistant principal at Washington Middle School for two years. During those years, I built many relationships with the students and their families. I look forward to meeting each of you in the coming weeks. I am committed to helping each of our students reach their full potential.
Each new school year brings with it the opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones, as well as having new teachers and new rooms for which to continue the excitement and wonder that is learning. For each of us, the start of a school year undoubtedly brings back memories from our youth. As we begin this new school year, take the time to reminisce about memories that you have of early September with your kids. One of my memories was shopping for new school clothes and sharing my summer adventures with my friends. These are precious times and moments that bring with them the wonderment that is a new school year.
The PTA board met in August to calendar events for the year. Our PTA is excited to continue to serve and support our students at Lowell. As always, they are actively seeking members of our Lowell family to join our PTA. For information on how you can be involved in the PTA, you may contact our membership co-chairs Jennifer Abe and Margaret Migliazza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lowell welcomes several new staff members. Ms. Nissen, fourth grade teacher, Ms. Wakefield, LTS fourth grade teacher, and Ms. Mahnken, third grade teacher. We would also like to welcome Ms. Saroyan, school psychologist, Ms. Provost, RSP, and Ms. Lowery, our new speech teacher. In addition, we would like to welcome Julio Hernandez back to Lowell in his new role as custodial supervisor.
As I begin my first year as principal at Lowell, I know that each and every student, parent and staff member share the importance of education and the wonderment that is found in every possibility. Wonder, explore, transform.
