Note from Ms. Patricia, School Counselor:

Happy New Year Everyone!

I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to the Lowry community for the tremendous outpouring of generosity for our Food For Kids Backpack Program! As you know, we held a food drive right before our holiday break – and our food cabinets are overflowing!

We had many students and their families utilize this wonderful resource.  I am so proud to work in such a caring community!

In gratitude,

Patricia Vaughan


LCR Pop Up Party Details:

Everyone is cordially invited to Kareen’s House at 7pm on 23 Feb 2019.

We cannot wait to host our first Lowry LCR Pop Up Party at Kareen’s House.

The LCR (Left, Center, Right) party is a long-standing tradition at Lowry Elementary.    It has served as a great fundraiser to help with staff positions and critical needs for our school.  It’s also a super fun evening to mingle with other Lowry parents and possibly win the big pot of money!

The annual LCR party tickets will be sold at our school auction/fundraiser on March 9th.  Kareen McIntosh has graciously agreed to host a smaller Pop Up Party on Saturday evening, February 23 at 7pm.  Thank you Kareen for offering to host such a fun night out!

If you have never attended an LCR party before they are amazing!  The night will include some mingling with our lovely fellow Lowry parents, a few games of LCR (Left Centre Right is an extremely fun and simple dice game, with a chance to win a pot full of money!) and of course some drinks!

This is a first come first serve event and we are capping it at the first 30 people.  Please use this link below to secure your spot for $25 per person for this wonderful evening!  This is an ADULTS ONLY EVENING!
