This week was a time to wrap things up in Lowell. The end of the school year is a busy time for students, teachers, and school staff. Here’s a peek at how some of Lowell Area Schools’ buildings celebrated the end of a school year and start of summer break!
But first, the week kicked off with the annual Memorial Day Parade. If you missed the ceremony at Oakwood Cemetery we were there doing a live stream. Leading up to remembering those veterans who have passed away during the past year, a parade traveled down Main Street, stopping briefly at Veteran’s Memorial Parking Lot for a short ceremony.
The community came out to honor those who have served during the parade.
The biggest wrapping up of the week was the school year for Lowell Area Schools. [St. Pat’s, you’re not too far behind!] The end of the school year had new graduates from Unity High. Seniors gave back within the community, participated in their graduation ceremony, and will continue on in life while remaining a Red Arrow.
Fifth grade students at Alto, Murray Lake, and Cherry Creek had ceremonies of their own as they leave elementary school behind and head for middle school. And eighth grade students ended their year looking forward to the start of high school. We weren’t able to capture photos from all of these events, but wish students across the district a great summer and continued success when the new year begins.
The week began with Bushnell Elementary students participating in the Field Day. Students and teachers braved the heat to have fun participating in Olympic themed games throughout the afternoon.
Cherry Creek students were able to run the Ninjas on the Move course as their final Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) celebration.
Bushnell first grade students had a bridging ceremony as they said farewell to their current building and begin second grade at Cherry Creek. Each student crossed over a bridge as current second students blew bubbles and horns to welcome them. They also got a tour of second grade classrooms and the school ticket store where tickets earned for good behavior can be redeemed.
Later in the week it was Alto’s turn for Field Day fun!
Then the final day arrived! Teachers waved goodbye to students as buses pulled away. Fifth grade students walked out of elementary school one last time.
And that’s a wrap when it comes to the 2017-2018 school year! Have a safe and fun summer break!
