FUN RUN: Lowry community…we met our Fun Run goal and raised $21,052!!  This is the most money we have ever made for the fun run!  So thank you for all of your generosity and support.

We came around this week and talked to students about what prize they would like and determined their size if they wanted a shirt.  If you would like something specific for your child, please email Charis at charismarie@gmail.com.  We will submit the order for prizes next week and should receive student’s prizes in early November.  Stay tuned to hear what classes won the ice cream party prize!

Grocery Cards:

Everyone needs groceries, so why not let a percentage of that grocery bill benefit Lowry Elementary School?  King Soopers and Safeway generously donate 5% of grocery and gas purchases to Lowry Elementary.

Cost to you: Absolutely nothing – you can even earn the same points on your credit card that you usually would when you buy groceries.

Effort for you: Virtually none! You have to carry an extra card in your wallet, and remember to RELOAD it, but that’s it!

Benefit to Lowry Elementary School: 5% back on all your RELOADS!

How do I purchase a reloadable grocery gift card?

Email lowryfunds@gmail.com to purchase and make arrangements to get your card. (Gift cards MUST be purchased from Lowry).  Look in your Thursday Folders to find out more on how the program works.


Garden Committee~ The Lowry PTO School Garden committee is looking for a landscaper to do some work in the school gardens this fall. We would love to keep this work in our school community and are looking to see if any Lowry families own or work at a landscaping/gardening company. We have some dedicated funding for a few specific projects. If interested or know of anyone please contact Aimee Konowal at 720-284-2370.

Box TopsKeep collecting your box tops! The class with the most collected will receive a Popsicle party celebrate! Please turn in your box tops on a collection sheet, in an envelope, or baggie.
