TYNGSBOROUGH — Superintendent Jill Davis is pleased share that Greater Lowell Tech shared a virtual Home for the Holidays Show with students and staff this morning.
Each year, the district holds a holiday show for each grade level.

Thank you all for doing your best to spread holiday cheer among our community.”
Dozens of students submitted entries for consideration, which included dance, musical and technical talent performances. The video additionally includes 12 graphic interchange format animations (gifs) submitted by Design and Visual Communications students, 13 art samples and 15 staff photos.
