Capitol Hill’s Lowell Elementary has gotten some tough press lately. Parent Jennifer Brown asked if CHS could help get the word out about something positive — the school has room to grow and wants Capitol Hill kids to be part of it:
Can you help get the word out – now that the APP program has been moved to Lowell@Lincoln in Wallingford we have room to grow as a neighborhood school. We plan to have on-site before and school childcare in addition to our before and after school programs in the fall.
Great things are happening at Lowell. With overcrowding at Stevens and Montlake we want to make sure that people are aware that Lowell is accepting new students and transfer students for the fall.
