Beautification Day 2022


Thank you to all who contributed their time and expertise for Lowell PTSA Beautification Day 2022!

It was amazing seeing the level of community and dedication we have here at Lowell from current students and parents to faculty and alumni.


Through all your commitment we were able to plant a variety of plants and flowers in the front planter, clean the grass field, weed and prune the overgrown plants on main the stairwell, clean all the windows in the courtyard, restore bulletin boards, and paint the fire lane and the PE storage cabinet!  Special thanks to Lowell Alum Noel Martinez for lunch from Cafe La Taza/Bar TZA


Check out photos from the event


Special thanks to Mr. Dominguez for supporting this event.


In community,
