TK/K Playground Afterschool

As more children and families are staying to play on the TK/K playground in the after school sunshine, we want to remind you that parents are responsible for closely supervising their own children.Teachers are not on yard duty at this time and are having their preparation period. If children get into an altercation, parents must work together to solve the problem just as you would if you were at a public park. Thank you for your help in keeping our playground safe and for following our school playground expectations.


Join us at our Lawrence Family Dance on Friday, April 21 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm. Don’t miss out on all the fun including the DJ & Professional photo booth. Suggest your favorite song to be played here:

Food will be available for sale from Your Taco Guy (with 20% going to 5th-grade camp 23-24!), Munchies Mini Donuts and other treats from our Fourth Grade Classroom Parents. The Book Fair will be open as well!

We’d like to have a few other options including a glow-in-the-dark tattoo station, and a face-painting station – but we need volunteers in order to make it happen! Please consider donating an hour of your time to this awesome event. Click here to volunteer:

All labradors and their families are welcome! Please Note: All children must attend with a supervising adult due to safety and insurance purposes. Please do not just drop your students off. Thank you for your cooperation!

Spirit Wear Update

We know this has taken a LONG time, and we really appreciate your patience. Our new zippered hoodies are now in stock and look amazing! We will be distributing zippered hoodies and T-shirt orders to teachers early next week. The hats are on the way. They were delayed because the patches just weren't up to snuff... but our hat vendor is working hard at getting those to us ASAP.

We are going to be pausing sales online for a bit to catch up on deliveries and to make sure our inventory numbers are accurate. Spirit Wear sales will resume shortly! We will also be selling spirit wear at our Family Picnic Day on Saturday, May 20!
