Classroom Help
Raising Hands

Teachers typically recruit classroom volunteers at Back to School night, so stay tuned for more information about how you can help. 

Track your VIP hours

All VIPS sign in and out at the front office, but some hours are done "behind the scenes." We are currently creating a downloadable time tracker sheet. Stay tuned!

Back to School


One of the things that makes Lowell stand out is its army of dedicated teachers, parents, families, and supporters who give and give and give their time, energy, creativity, and resources every day for our children. Each year, we take a moment to acknowledge volunteers who have gone “above and beyond” to make Lowell such a wonderful school. To nominate individuals for an award, either download the nomination form and return to your child’s teacher or the PTA lockbox in the workroom OR submit through Google Forms. Nominations are typically accepted in the spring and awards are given at the end of the year.
