A Message from Mr. Matthews

I can't believe it's already May! Where has the school year gone?

There are so many activities, student achievements, and graduation approaching, that we here at Lowell are working hard every day!

It was so meaningful to have our groundbreaking on May 13th. The hard work and support of community is what paved the way for this step in the process of improving what we have here at Lowell.

I am so proud of our facility, staff and our students who are excelling each and every day.
Keep up the good work!
Lowell High School Band -
2019 State Champions

For the second time in three years, the Lowell High School Band has outperformed all others to claim the 2A/1A State Championship. After sailing through qualifiers, the Devils found some tough competition at State Finals, ultimately sealing their victory by dominating in the tricky “sight-reading” portion of the event. “I couldn’t be prouder of these kids,” says Music Director Paul Burch. “They fought back to overcome some mistakes and finish strong. That resolve, their belief in themselves, and their commitment to this program is truly inspiring.”

Lowell Choir - 2019 State Runners-Up!

On April 29th, the Lowell High School Choir managed an incredible 2nd-place finish in the 2A/1A State Finals, held at Oregon State University. In a division long dominated by private schools, this was the highest finish by any public school in State history!

The Devils impressed with an advanced set of all a capella selections on stage, and even managed to score well in the daunting “sight-reading” portion to secure the record-breaking finish. “I can’t overstate how huge this is,” says Music Director Paul Burch. “The private schools absolutely dominate in Choir. Our kids pulled off an incredible and historic feat here, a true triumph by the underdogs. What an incredible gift it’s been to work with this special group — I’ll never forget them!”
