What's Happening at Laurel Elementary


Our Lost and Found is Overflowing!

Please come by this week and check the lost and found if you are missing items. The lost and found will be out front and in the vestibule all week.


Turkey Drive a HUGE Success

Laurel PTO teamed up with classrooms on our 2021 Turkey Drive to provide turkey dinners for 25 Laurel families this year. Thanks for your donations of food and funds to help us with this.


School Wide Celebrations

This week we will have a school wide celebration after filling a huge bucket with Leopard Spot acknowledgements of students being safe, respectful and responsible. The kids voted to have me eat an "awesome bowl" which is a bowl of ice cream, topped with jalapeno peppers, olives, gummy bears and other edible but odd foods.

I'll do this live over zoom and share the video afterwards Way to go, Laurel Leopards!


We are also looking forward to SPIRIT WEEK the week of 12/13 up to winter break.

Library Check Out Returning to Laurel

Staff has been busy reassembling our library after the space was converted to use as a classroom last year to adhere to covid safety protocols. This is really exciting for us as we look forward to having kids able to check out reading materials for reading at home. Look for more information on this in coming weeks. We will be looking for volunteers to help with check out and library upkeep. See the volunteer information below.
