What's Happening at Lawson!


Please remember to notify the office of any after school changes by 2:45pm (Wed. 1:45pm) in order for the student to get the message before dismissal. Thank you so much for helping us to get students accurate information about their after school plans.


We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Hosted by the Lawson PTO, this event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school.

After missing out on many beloved traditions, our spring Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. Here’s what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place on Feb. 24th 1:30 - 8:00pm and Mar. 1st 4:30 - 8:00pm right inside the main doors at Lawson Elementary.

Our Book Fair offers eWallet, a safe and secure alternative to cash. Simply create a free account to add funds and/or invite family and friends to contribute so your child can select their own books. Any unused funds can be spent at The Scholastic Store Online or to fund a future eWallet.

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:

Texas Roadhouse PTO Fundraiser!

Mark your calendars! Lawson PTO will host a fundraiser night at Texas Roadhouse on Tuesday, March 29th. Watch for more details to come!


here is an opportunity coming up for families to participate in a free virtual event called “Family Tech Talk,” where parents will learn best practices to help their kids use the Internet — from social media to online gaming — in safe and healthy ways. The program is sponsored by Trend Micro, an Internet safety expert. Thousands of schools have participated.

The Summit PTO has already registered for the free event so parents can participate on Wednesday, Feb. 16, and are inviting other schools to participate that same day, using the same link. It will be a Zoom presentation, followed by a Q&A.

I'm excited to offer this opportunity to our parents so we can learn and review best practices to help students use the Internet.

Below are details on the time and Zoom link.
