Lowry Winterfest 2008 was a huge success this year.

We walked into school on Tuesday witnessing beautiful hallway decorations that of which the sophomore’s won with their amazing country-themed decorations. Everyone was sporting their Disco/Hippy attire and we all looked fabulous. Bingo Night was hosted in the Cafeteria at 6:30 PM that night which was a huge success. Courtney Harrington took the big win clinching the 8GB video iPod Nano, and Missy McKinnon winning the beautiful jewelry donated by Rice Jewelers.
