Welcome to James R. Lowell Elementary School! Home of the Star Students!

Message From the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I begin my 8th year serving as the proud Principal at James R Lowell Elementary School.  This building from 1903 has a strong foundation.  We want to be able to create that strong foundation in the educational experiences and love for learning for all students that attend here.

Our goal is to continue searching for ways to keep increasing students’ achievement in a safe environment.  We have adopted The Power of 3; Taking Care of Yourself, Taking of Others; Taking Care of Your Environment.  Through daily examples, we want our students to take ownership of their learning and become true representatives of our society.

This year, while continuing to focus on the balanced literacy frameworks, we will be emphasizing in writing.  We will also provide our students five different specialist classes (Physical Education, Writing, Computer Science, Music, and Character Development).

The success of the school and your child is dependent on your involvement and supports.  For years, we’ve been forced to do more with less.  We extend and invitation to partner with us and support our mission of creating a strong educational foundation so that we can pave the road for all of our students to be college and career ready.  We need you as partners and have the same commitment to ensure your child reaching their highest potential.

Our school focus will continue to be:

  • Reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade
  • Addressing student’s individual needs
  • Creating a climate conducive to learning

We strive for your child to have the greatest academic success by professionally developing and supporting our staff to ensure your child enjoys school and becomes a lifelong learner.


Mr. David Lugo



We would like to remind our parents to check our LED sign facing the school yard for important announcements throughout the year.  Once again, thank you to all of our wonderful parents for your continued support!
