Campus Is Open This Weekend

By now, you should have received an email from your child's teacher. We are excited to welcome Labradors back on campus. If you did not receive an email on Friday, August 20, please contact the school office on Monday, August 23.


The school gates will be open on Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22. You may use this time to show your child around campus and help them locate their classroom.


In addition to locating the classroom, PTO has created the scavenger hunt below to make your experience more enjoyable.

Starting out the Year

As many of you know, Lawrence Elementary is proud to be recognized as a Leader in Me school. What does this mean? Lawrence students, staff, and families will all become familiar with Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and their principles. In turn, they will begin to apply them at school and home.


Throughout the first weeks of school, all Lawrence classrooms will:


  • Learn/review the 7 Habits
  • Participate in Morning Meetings
  • Create a Classroom Mission Statement
  • Learn/review school procedures and routines
  • Begin creating Leadership Notebooks
  • Recognize students applying the 7 Habits principles
