April meeting: Lowell School Tour & Talk

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on April 5, 2009


If you attended Lowell School, you remember the building, your teachers, administrators, and fellow students. Let’s reminisce!

Saturday April 18th

2 pm: Meet at Lowell School for tour (Corner of Maple and Atwood Avenues). 

3 pm: Discussion & social hour at Goodman Center

Built in 1916 on the site of former circus grounds, Lowell School combined great architecture with a great learning environment. Lowell School was home to many “firsts” — first to have a parent-teacher organization, first to participate in the federal hot lunch program. During the 1930s, the school even featured atuberculosis solarium. 

We’ve heard East Siders mention all kinds of Lowell School fun and we want to know more! Join Principal Beverly Cann for a tour of the school at 2pm. Then bring your memories and memorabilia on over to the Goodman Center for sharing at the discussion following the tour. We’ll have our scanners ready to capture images.

    After speaking with some other Lowell parent’s and staff, I has come to my attention that it was actually Principal Lisa Kvistad on this tour. I was asking around because I was hoping to organize another one. 🙂
