Dear Laurel Springs School Families,

Thanks goes out to our entire school community for their participation in American Education Week last week and for attending our Fall Book Fair! It was great having parents back in the building for Career Day and for our afternoon book fair event. The past week was full of opportunities to get involved and valuable experiences for our students.

Our students had the opportunity to participate in a "Teacher Trivia" contest, with the winners getting the opportunity to pick a themed day for our school. In honor of their win, Amber and Avery have selected to have a "Holiday Movie and PJ Day" on December 23rd on our half day before the winter vacation. Wear school appropriate PJ's and a holiday hat! Congratulations to Mrs. Lucier who won for our staff!

Congratulations to Mrs. Maienza's 3rd Grade Class for collecting the most items for our food drive, bringing in 93 items!

I hope that the Thanksgiving holiday provides you time to spend with family and friends. Enjoy the break.

Thank you!

Mr. Ryan Mahlman
