MRA Annual Survey

As you know, Lawrence Elementary is implementing the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Surveys will be conducted to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. The data from these surveys will also help us track the impacts of the Leader in Me process and implement key practices more fully. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all teachers, parents/guardians, and students in Grade 4 and up to participate.

Parent participation is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback from one member of every household. The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child’s experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.

Thank you in advance for completing the parent survey. Please use this link to complete the survey.

Join the Fun for Bike to the Moon Week

May 9 to 13, 2022

The students, parents, and teachers at Lawrence Elementary will celebrate Bike to the Moon Week from May 9-13 as part of May Bike Month. During this week-long event, students, families, and school staff will track their miles and minutes of active transportation with the goal of collectively “biking” all the way to the moon, 286,900 miles away!

Participants can earn “moon miles” by participating in physical activities, such as:

• Biking

• Walking

• Rolling, such as wheelchairs, skateboarding, or scooting

• Playing sports

• Dancing

Families and school members can see the journey progress by visiting the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools Facebook and Twitter pages. Remember to post a fun photo and tag @AlamedaCoSR2S on Twitter and Instagram with #IBikedtotheMoon and on Facebook at

How Can I Track My Miles and Minutes?

We know that 286,900 miles is a long distance to travel – we can make it with your help! To get us to the moon, we will convert all activity, minutes or miles, into “moon miles” using the Mileage Tracking Form. You don’t have to worry about doing the conversions – the Mileage Tracking Form will automatically do it for you. If you are curious, we are using the following conversions:

  • 1 mile of biking = 25 moon miles
  • 10 minutes of biking = 25 moon miles
  • 10 minutes of another physical activity (walking, scooting, skating, taking public transportation) = 25 moon miles
  • 1 post on social media about the event, with #IBikedToTheMoon = 25 moon miles

During Bike to the Moon Week, you will fill out your own mileage tracking form. You can enter how many miles you biked, or how long (in minutes) of other physical activity you completed. There is no limit to the number of activities you can submit. You can submit your moon miles through the Mileage Tracking Form each day, or all at once. Just make sure that you don’t double-count your activities.

Key Tracking Forms Dates

  • Tracking Form Opens: Monday, May 9 at 7:00 am PST
  • Tracking Form Closes: Monday, May 16 at 5:00 pm PST – Be sure to enter all your miles and minutes by then!
