Farmer’s Market:   Every Friday through October 12 from 3-4 pm outside the North entrance of the school next to the playgrounds!  There will be a great variety of produce available, which could include corn, lettuce, peppers, zucchini, melons, etc. This week Mr. Gibson’s class is hosting; next week is Ms. Sorrells’ class. We will have PUMPKINS for sale!  We hope to see you there!

 

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 TopsAny easy way to earn cash for your school, which in turn benefits your kids, is by collecting Box Tops!  Look for the pink Box Top on hundreds of grocery products & cut them out!  Each is worth 10 cents for Lowry Elementary.  DUE DATE IS OCTOBER 26, SO START COLLECTING NOW!

Original Artworks~

We have teamed up with Original Works to offer a very special program.  In the next few weeks (by October 18), your child will be creating their own unique artwork for this project. You will have the opportunity to place online orders for a variety of high quality, professionally produced products featuring your child’s masterpiece.
