Back to School Night 


Back to School Night will be next week on Thursday 9/21 from 6pm - 8:30pm.

If you are able to come a little early, the PTSA invites you to participate in the Welcome to Lowell Scavenger Hunt.  The scavenger hunt was created by Lowell students and is being sponsored by the PTSA.  It can be played individually or in groups on the ClueKeeper app downloaded to your phone (for iOS or Android).  The hunt takes about 20 minutes and will introduce you to the Lowell campus and to a bit of history and trivia about the oldest public high school West of the Mississippi. 

Please meet by the flagpole (in the main courtyard entrance at 1101 Eucalyptus St) between 4:30-5:30pm for instructions and to begin the game. 


In addition, Lowell's Book to Book store will be open at Back to School Night from 5:30-8pm. All Lowell merchandise will be 20% off.
