Lowell School’s Tax Project, also known as the Game of Life, is an opportunity for 6th graders to apply math concepts, such as percentages, fractions, and decimals, to a situation most parents are very familiar with—taxes.
Trees are a critical part of our ecosystem, providing numerous services, including acting as wildlife habitats, cooling structures, and absorbing CO2 and rainwater. That's what Lowell's 6th graders learned during last month's iTree Eco project in science classes.
We were thrilled to host our first-ever virtual Grandguest Days just before spring break. Grandguests zoomed into the festivities from all over the country and world, including Malaysia, Kenya, Australia, France, and Brazil!
When change seems to be the only constant, turning to our mission and values by remembering who we are, what we believe, and what makes Lowell, Lowell, is like returning home—to a space that 'fills the well'. The work our community does around civil rights and social justice is evident throughout the year in our curriculum and even in everyday conversations at Lowell. As a result, January and February have transformed into a celebration of this work as Social Justice day, conversations on race, honoring Black History Month, and exercising advocacy during Black Lives Matter week take centerstage at Lowell.
Lowell School is a private PK-8th grade school located in NW Washington, DC. At Lowell students gain the knowledge, skills, and social-emotional literacy to be the bold leaders and creative problem solvers our world needs.
