WHAT IT IS: Through the award of a School Improvement Grant, Lowery Elementary School will be able to implement two programs this school year that will assist in our mission of educating students to their maximum potential.  Our goal is to provide our students with as many opportunities to learn as possible.  In addition to the normal school year, through the SIG grant, our students will also have opportunities to learn and grow through the Jumpstart Program and receive additional interventions through the Saturday School Program.

Jumpstart     School will officially begin for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students on August 1st. 

8am - 12 noon
