Thank You for Helping Our Students SOAR!


From the Principal:

Hello Lowry Families,

Welcome back to school! We hope you had a wonderful break and are so excited to welcome you all back for the remainder of the school year. It was exciting to have our fifth graders attend the Ameritown fieldtrip this past Monday; they had an amazing time. Next week, Round 1 of Choice opens on January 15 and it closes on February 15. Be sure to call or visit our front office with any questions about school choice. ALL ECE and fifth GRADE STUDENTS must participate in choice, even if you are planning to attend your neighborhood school. You can also visit schoolchoice.dpsk12.org for the most up to date information from the choice office.

Here’s to a great second half of the school year!


Ms. Nault
