Principals' Message

To the Lowes Community:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to lead our school. Lowes has been very welcoming to me and I am very excited about the future of our school. We are going to do great things here and I am honored to be a part of the Lowes community.

I am originally from Christopher, IL. I came to Murray State for college, loved the area, and I have never left. Before Lowes, I was the principal at South Marshall Middle School for two years. Before that, I was a math teacher at Marshall County High School for five years and at Calloway County Middle School for two years. I have also coached just about every sport you can imagine. In 2012, I married my wife Brittany, who is a realtor in Murray. We have a son, Roman, who was born in February 2016.

I want our school to be among the best in the Commonwealth. I want to make sure that each student in our school learns the skills, knowledge, and work ethic required to succeed in the 21st century. I want our students to enjoy learning and to instill a sense of inquiry about all things in them. I want our kids to look back on Lowes as a place that really made a difference for them. I want our community to be proud of our school and the students we produce.

I encourage you to give feedback on our school. I want to know what we can do better and your input is important to us. You can call me at school at 270-674-4842 or email me at ryan.marchetti@graves.kyschools.us.

I appreciate your support and look forward to the bright future of Lowes Elementary School.

To the Lowes Community:

I have been so blessed to work for four years now in the school where I attended as a child. Not only was this my home school; it is also a place that my dad graduated from and my grandmother taught junior and senior English for many years. With that being said it is truly an honor to walk these halls this year as the assistant principal.

This will be my 17th year in education. After graduating from Murray State University I started teaching at Symsonia Elementary where I stayed for thirteen years. While I was there I completed my Masters and Rank I. In 2011 my son, Brady was born and he has forever changed my life. I am looking forward to enrolling Brady next year, where he will be a fourth generation Blue Devil.

Sam Parker, a motivational author, writes about the importance of going the extra degree. At 212 degrees water begins to boil, boiling water creates steam, and steam is powerful enough to power a steam engine. My vision for Lowes Elementary is for the Lowes students, staff, parents, and community to go the extra degree to reach the greatest potential that will provide our students with an education that will ultimately prepare them for a successful future.

We welcome support and ideas that will allow our school to grow and meet the rapid changes of today’s requirements for success. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 270-674-4846 or email me at sarah.wright@graves.kyschools.us.
