"School is the central focus of our children's lives. In the middle of a pandemic, an economic crisis and a political crisis, Lowell High School is tasked with a much more difficult challenge than usual this year. Our children, our teachers and our community all need school to succeed. Lowell PTSA is trying to fill in many gaps for our students and our families, and they need your support. If you are lucky enough to have some dollars to spare, please donate to the PTSA."  - Michael Rosenfeld, parent of a 10th grader
