It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s the hap-happiest season of all.”
- Holiday song by Andy Williams
We’ve had some pretty wonderful times at Lowell. I am endlessly amazed by the things that happen for our school and PTA. Thanks to an extraordinary effort by a tireless committee and team of volunteers, our 10th annual Jog A Thon was our most successful one yet. We also recently embraced our greatest number of participants in the Reflections program, a national PTA arts recognition – the talent of our many artists was wonderful. We have a record number of members who have joined our PTA, and our latest PTA association meeting was a standing-room only event. I am so proud of the students, teachers, and families of Lowell – your passion, enthusiasm, volunteerism, and commitment to education are unwavering….Happy holidays to all in our WONDERFUL Lowell community!
~Denise Mester, Lowell PTA President
