Message from the Principal
December is a natural time for reflection as one year slips past and another begins. Each year when my extended family gets together for the annual holiday gathering, an important part of the evening is when folks rise to share their thoughts from the year. This is my favorite part of the evening because I love to hear the older generations tell stories of the past and bring forth the power of tradition. It is an evening I look forward to with great anticipation.Thinking of this upcoming evening, I am moved to share a toast of good cheer to the entire Lowrie community: As I think about the Lowrie community I am thankful for:
• Here’s to the great children that we are lucky enough to work with each day. Their hope and belief in possibility is inspiring!
• Here’s to the entire staff who are so thoughtful and caring. Their dedication to the learning of each individual is incredible and I am proud to work amongst them each day.
• Here’s to our community whose generosity as witnessed by the thoughtful care and support for our school, each other and staff each and every day keeps us grounded in the power of common purpose.
• Here’s to us all – may these next few weeks be filled with joy, rest, family and friends!
As you move through the hectic pace of this time of year, I hope that you too will find time for reflection and time to be together as a family. All the best to you and your family in this season of joy

parking lot. I realize that parking is tight, but if you would like to
pick up your child by the buses, we ask that you park in the
• 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.
