There is no silver bullet to make everyone happy with Lowell Schools and I’ve accepted the facts that some will find fault with anything and spread unsubstantiated rumors about things being cancelled that haven’t been and make negative comments about a program that has brought in millions or telling people enrollment has gone down when it hasn’t.
So to address some rumors – let me share a few FACTS !
1) The SCIENCE FAIR IS NOT I REPEAT NOT CANCELLED OR IN DANGER OF BEING CANCELLED. THERE WILL BE A SCIENCE FAIR !
2) Enrollment for Lowell per the STATE in 2019/2020
