Greetings Laburnum Families,

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend! See the flyer above for ways to support your student's wellness during Mental Health Awareness Month.

Read below for important information. Don't skip the sections about 5th grade promotion and our annual transition day!!

5th Science SOL

  • In Person - May 25
  • Virtual - May 26

We need all students at school on time for SOL testing. Once the testing session begins, we will not be permitted to let tardy students into the classroom and they will have to take a make-up assessment. In-Person students must be at school by 8:00 AM. We will begin accepting virtual students for testing at 7:45 at the parent drop off loop in the parking lot.


If your virtual student took pictures with Strawbridge in April, you may pick up those pictures Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. All in person students received their pictures last week. We will let families know when make up photos are available.

Principal Chat & PTA General Meeting:

5th Grade Promotion

We are excited to celebrate our 5th graders with a drive through promotion ceremony. Please click on the attached flyer for details.

When: Wednesday, June 16th @ 11:00

Where: Laburnum Elementary on the parent drop off loop.

Things to know:

  • We want families to decorate their vehicles to celebrate your students.
  • Vehicles will drive through the parent drop off area where students will hear their name, receive a gift bag, and have an opportunity to take a quick photo at the photo booth to commemorate the moment.
  • Parents of all virtual students will need to come to the school between June 1 - June 11 to pick up your child's door tag. We will send the door tags home with all in person students. You will need to tape/hang the door tag on the passenger side of your vehicle on the day of the celebration. The door tag will have your child's name and this will allow 5th grade teachers to call the correct student's name.

Amazon Smile

Help our school earn money buy shopping with our Amazon Smile link. As you purchase items on Amazon, we will earn a percentage that will be used to support students and staff at Laburnum. See link below.

Transition Day

Join us on June 15th for our annual Transition Day event. This is an opportunity for you and your child to hear from teachers from the next grade level. They will share what you can expect in terms of grade level content and other important information. This will be virtual and all links can be located on the attached flyer.

Note: You will attend the grade level that your student will be in next year. For example, if your student is a kindergartner, you will click on the link for "rising 1st graders".
