A Message from Principal Mary Sepler September, 26th 2019

Dear Lowell Family,

Teachers and Specialists are getting ready for the school-wide Open House tonight from 5-6PM.  We hope to see you there!  Then, please stick around for our PTA sponsored Back to School Fair that runs from 6-8PM in the gym and Commons area.  Many thanks to Stephanie and her team for working so hard to create a fair to remember.  I hear some kiddos are super excited about who will be in the “dunk tank” this year.  The barbecued hot dogs will also be great!  Thank you Lowell PTA!

Wondering when you should keep your child home for illness and when it’s OK to send them to school?  Please follow this link from our Nurse Julia to learn more: Click here

Bellingham Public Schools will host Beyond the Birds and the Bees: Talking to Children about their Bodies, Sex and Relationships from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9 in the District Office Board Room, located at 1306 Dupont Street. This event is geared for families with children in grades 5 to 12. School staff and health professional guests will share with parents and guardians what schools teach about puberty and human sexuality and will discuss how to talk to teens about bodily changes, responsibility and respect. The HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome) curriculum will also be previewed on this same evening.  Families are the first and best teachers for children. Talking to children about building healthy relationships, healthy communication, and the role sex plays in healthy relationships is important for lifelong well-being. This evening will support families in having important conversations with their children about sex and relationships.  Please contact your school office if language interpretation services are needed. For more information, contact the wellness program at 360-676-6470, ext. 6533.
