As announced during the State of the School meeting, the Lowell Parent Community is planning a great lineup of beloved activities this spring. To make each of these events a success, we need your help! Each event relies on the time and participation of the Lowell community, and we hope that each family will identify at least one event with which to volunteer. Check out the full listing of opportunities in the LPC Resource Board in the parent portal. Many thanks for all you do to make Lowell, Lowell!
Our 40th annual fundraiser will be an inclusive celebration consisting of food, drink, door prizes, raffles, a paddle raise, and bidding on exciting live items to raise funds for financial aid at Lowell School. Volunteer Tasks: Leading up to the Fête, six volunteers will be needed to collect donations, host or assist with hosting a pre-party promoting the fête or a sign-up party, and document and organize donations. During the Fête, approximately 30 volunteers will be needed to set up and decorate the party space, run registration, sell raffle tickets, greet guests, assist with back-office tasks and Dollars for Scholars donations, clean up, and distribute items to the winners.

Volunteer Tasks: Volunteers are needed to serve as Team Captains and lead small groups of volunteers in specific tasks. Families of all ages are encouraged to participate. No sign-up or experience is needed!
The Bazaar is back - Spring edition! This special Lowell School tradition brings together families, faculty, and staff for a fun day of games, food, and community. We are excited to gather and will need your help to make this a special event for the children and the entire Lowell community. Volunteer Tasks: An additional event chair to help plan and run the event, a volunteer coordinator on the day of the Bazaar to answer volunteer questions, set up and clean up, and a ride/game operator are needed. Stay tuned for an email from your Group Parent. Each class will be asked to cover one ride or game for the duration of the Bazaar.
Teacher and Staff Appreciation
The LPC will host a wellness lunch and market for all staff and faculty. This is a great way to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who makes Lowell a special place for our children. Volunteer Tasks: We need four to five volunteers to set up, (wo)man the lunch distribution and market, and clean up following the event.
This is Lowell’s annual exposition celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math!
