Thank You for Helping Our Students SOAR!

Dining for Dollars:

Thank you to everyone who dined at Modern Market, we raised $265.08 for the Lowry Aviator Fund.  Mark your calendars for the next event: Mici’s on Colorado Blvd Tuesday, February 27.


Aviator Fund News ~ Mark your calendars for a community event benefiting the Lowry Aviator Fund.  Dust off your skates for a fun family night at Skate City in Aurora on Friday, April 27 from 6:00 -8:00 pm.  Admission is only $5 and half of that will go back directly to the Aviator Fund.  Should be a fun event for all ages! More details to come!


BOXTOP COLLECTION ~ Box top collection ends tomorrow, Friday, February 16.  The class with the most box tops collected wins a Popsicle party so make sure you mark your teachers name on the form.


Multicultural Night ~Lowry families we are excited to announce that our first annual Multicultural night will be on March 7 from 5:00-6:30.  It will be a fun night to see musical performances, visit classrooms and learn about the countries they have been studying and taste yummy food from around the world.  You can refer to the letter that was sent home this week for more details.


Al a Carte Snacks in the Cafeteria~

We are adding Al a Carte Snacks to Lowry’s cafeteria during student’s lunch times. Everything has been approved by the district’s LivWell committee and it includes healthy items children love. This addition is to help cover the district’s negative balance in the kitchen from unpaid lunch accounts and will begin with the starred items on the attached paper.

The students will be allowed to purchase these items after they have finished their regular lunch.  Students can put money in their lunch accounts or bring in cash/checks to the kitchen Manager to allow them to purchase these items. We thank you in advance for your help. If you have any questions please contact Ambroshia Conner at 720-424-5918.
