Greetings LES Families,

It is almost that time!! We have been preparing to welcome our wonderful Laburnum Lions back with open arms for the 2022 - 2023 school year!!

Please don't forget to join us for our Open House on Friday, August 26, 1:00pm - 4:00pm.

Open House Details

  • Meet your child's teacher and drop off school supplies.
  • Pick up family number car tags. This is very important! We use the family number car tags for dismissing our students. It is important that you have your tag prior to the first day of school to help us help you get your student(s) in a timely manner.
  • We will have a limited supply of bookbags available for any Laburnum student who may need one.
  • Staff members will be available to answer any transportation and PowerSchool Parent Portal questions you may have.

Our hard working PTA team will also be available to accept membership registrations during that time. Check out the PTA section for more information about joining the PTA. Our goal is 100% family and staff participation. If you join by September 19th, you will be entered to win a $25 Walmart gift card!
