Class of 2001’s Molly Bonnell recently shared, “Attention fellow Monroe Street Bears.  Such sad news.  I’m not sure a lot of people remember their kindergarten teacher, but she (Mrs. Lowery) was so kind and caring.  She gave many of us the foundation to bright futures.  I used to see her every now and then and somehow she looked the same as she did in 1988 and her mannerisms were exactly how I remembered.  May she rest in peace and long live the letter people and the days when kindergarteners took a nap mid-day (and sometimes got in trouble for talking instead).”

Please feel free to share your memories of Kathy Lowery in the comments section below.
