"Our After-school Art Club was a triumph! Thanks to all who helped out--especially to the master-mind, Kristin Wilhoit! The Art Club will be back in the new school year, but all students can look forward to this... 

Coming this fall to Lawrence: F.A.M.E. (Fine Arts Mini Experience) for every class! FAME will be a large part of the "A-rts" in our school's "S.T.E.A.M." program, but we need the help of PARENTs, GUARDIANs, & GRANDPARENTs, or other extended family or friends.  Please consider this volunteer opportunity in the new school year. Share the information with those you are in contact with over the summer. We hope to have at least 1-2 adults as "docents" for each classroom. These "docents" would be required to attend a one-time 4-hour training at LES and be committed for the school year.  Volunteer time would amount to approx. 1 hr./1 day/month--not a lot!  All curriculum shared in the program is scripted--meaning: you do not have to have any teaching experience--just enthusiasm for helping our kids!   For more info., please see the FAME website: http://www.fameforkids.com/fame_about.html.  Some other elementary schools in our district have already adopted this program with great success--but only with the support of their school community.  If you or someone you know is interested in helping, please contact me at dannaprobst@hotmail.com or sign up on the WeJoinIn here: https://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/iewuo.

Garden Planning Meeting:

As you know, the Lawrence community is eager to provide students with the opportunity to enhance learning in a school garden. In order for this to become a reality, parent and community support is critical. Due to the proposed location of the garden, our planning has been delayed this year. We are excited to finally meet on Thursday, April 12th at 5:00p.m. in the Science Lab. During this meeting, we will discuss first steps for a school garden. This includes adults sharing their level of expertise in the areas of construction, irrigation, botany, etc. It is going to take a team of diverse talent to construct a fully operating garden. The outcome will be amazing, and we are looking forward to your support in making this happen.

Bunny Visit:

Ms. Starkovich has a very tame bunny she would like to bring to school on Thursday, March 29. Students may have the opportunity to hold and pet the bunny during classroom visits. As stated in the LVJUSD Board Policy, BP 6163.2, written notification must be provided to all parents/guardians of students when an animal is brought to school. It is the responsibility of the parent to provide notification of a health condition that may be aggravated by the animals’ presence. If you would like your child to “opt out” of interaction with the bunny, please notify:kstarkovich@lvjusd.k12.ca.us    Notification needs to be received by Wednesday, March 28.

Garden Planning Meeting:

As you know, the Lawrence community is eager to provide students with the opportunity to enhance learning in a school garden. In order for this to become a reality, parent and community support is critical. Due to the proposed location of the garden, our planning has been delayed this year. We are excited to finally meet on Thursday, April 12th at 5:00p.m. in the Science Lab. During this meeting, we will discuss first steps for a school garden. This includes adults sharing their level of expertise in the areas of construction, irrigation, botany, etc. It is going to take a team of diverse talent to construct a fully operating garden. The outcome will be amazing, and we are looking forward to your support in making this happen. 

Lost and Found:

All misplaced clothing items are located outside of the multipurpose room. After school on Wednesday and Thursday of next week, our lost and found bins will be moved to the front of the school, so families will have the opportunity to look for their belongings. All unclaimed lost and found items will be donated to a charity over Spring Break. 

Birthday Recognition:

You may celebrate your child’s birthday by having his/her name on the marquee for one day. Wishes must be submitted to the office at least 2 weeks prior to the birthday. For additional details, please contact Mamie Kristovich.

Livermore Innovation Fair:

Livermore Innovation Fair will take place on Saturday, April 14 from 10:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. at the Bankhead Theater.
