All third-graders from Lowell Public Schools and their teachers participated in Civics Day near the end of the school year to learn about the Lowell community. Students visited Mill City Grows' Mobile Truck, top left, Lowell High School, top right, Pollard Memorial Library, below left, City Hall, the Tsongas Arena at UMass Lowell, Lowell Telecommunications and the National Historic Museum and Park. The students were able to climb aboard a 1920s streetcar and hear about its history. In addition, they checked out city fire engines, below right, Trinity EMS ambulances and the Department of Public Works' street-sweeper truck. Students were each given a backpack, donated by Trinity, so they could collect information at the JFK Plaza, where many community partners provided information about safety and summer programs. Lowell Public Schools organizes Civics Day to coincide with the Social Studies curriculum so that students learn about Lowell and how the community provides support to its citizens.
