#GoRed Campaign a Success!

We had a spirit filled day at the Lowell today. Many students took place in the #GoRed campaign for the American Heart Association and we were able to raise over $250!
We also had a hint of Patriots pride as well.
Thanks to the second grade for counting all of the money.
Have a great weekend!
