Dear Lawrence Brook Elementary School Families:
We hope that our LB Families had a wonderful Thanksgiving and long weekend! As a reminder, Marking Period 1 Report Cards are available to view by logging in to parents.ebnet.org. For assistance accessing your account, please contact Mrs. Dudik or Mrs. LaPenta in the Main Office at 732-613-6871.
Looking ahead to next week, we have two important events: The PTA sponsored "Paths to Rhythm" Assembly will take place on December 6, and picture retake day will take place on December 8. Any student retaking photos from our first picture day should bring the original portrait packet to return to the photographer. We will also take class photos and club photos this day for the yearbook. Students in 4th grade will wear their 4th grade t-shirts.

Cold Weather Reminder
Students benefit from spending time outdoors being active! As long as the conditions on the playground are safe and the wind-chill temperature is above freezing, we will have outdoor recess. Please send students to school with the appropriate outerwear so they can enjoy their time outside. Also, don't forget to label your child's belongings in case they are misplaced.
