Thank You for Helping Our Students SOAR!

LOWRY ELEMENTARY CARNIVAL – MAY 19, 2017 4-7PM (on school grounds)

Lowry Elementary Carnival – Friday May 19th 4-7pm (located on the sports field on east side of school)


Come celebrate the end of another great year at our largest community event! There will be a bungee trampoline, hamster ball ride, 50ft inflatable obstacle course, the chance to dunk Dr. Cooper and teachers in the dunk tank and many more fun activities.  There will also be pizza, burritos and treats for purchase.   We will be selling punch cards for $15 (cash only) at the event to go towards all the food and fun!


We are so excited to announce that Avid for Adventure is bringing their climbing wall!  All children have to have a parent sign a waiver before they can climb the wall.  To help expedite the line during the carnival, we have included a link to the waiver below.  Once you click on the link, select the Lowry Elementary option on the bottom of the page.     http://www.avid4.com/event-registration


In order for the event to be a success, we need parent volunteers!  The event is 3 hours and we have created 1 1/2 hour slots so that you can enjoy half of the event with your family and friends.  We have several spots open and need your help!  Please check out our SignUp Genius to volunteer!
