For five years (Grades K-4), I attended Lowden Elementary School. During that time, and in that place, I lived through countless life-shaping events, which included some of the best and some of the worst in my life so far. I graduated from Lowden in 1999, the school closed in 2007, and in 2009 the building was demolished. As you might imagine, Lowden Elementary School holds a dear place in my heart, and so upon its demolition I wrote this obituary for my “Dear Old School” (After you read, please view the Facebook group (click here!) that I created for Lowden alumni, where you will find many interesting photos and discussions about the school):
