From the Lowell Sun:
LOWELL — Julie Avelino and Yohanna Santos could barely contain their excitement March 11 upon learning that their children were accepted into Collegiate Charter School of Lowell.
At 10 a.m. that Saturday, the school held an enrollment lottery, made necessary by a large number of applications for its open student spots.
Avelino’s daughter, Ana, and Santos’ son, Renan, both 5, were called early in the lottery and will attend kindergarten at the charter school in the fall.
Avelino and Santos said they have friends whose children are thriving at CCSL, and the families rave about the school, its teachers, programs and the new building on Middlesex Street.
“I don’t even have words for it right now,” Avelino said.
