School Logo Update: We are in the process of gathering potential school logos for Lawrence Elementary.  Lawrence community will vote October 10-17 to determine the final selection. This is an exciting step for our school.

Attendance: Each month we monitor our school’s attendance. One of our goals in the Single Plan for Student Achievement is to maintain 97%. Last month we reached 96.8%. This placed us 10 out of 12 compared to all other LVJUSD Elementary schools. The top schools reached 98.08%.  Please remember Every Day Counts! Each classroom will be starting a new competition on Monday, October 2. Students must be present and on-time in order to reach their daily goal. As a reminder, our gates lock right at 8:30a.m. This will continue to take place in order to maintain consistency and fairness amongst our classrooms.

Halloween Parade: Lawrence Elementary School will be having a Halloween parade on October 31, 2017. The parade will start at approximately 9:00a.m. Gory costumes/masks and weapons are not allowed. You will receive additional information regarding Halloween from your child’s teacher.

Parking Lot Safety Issue: This is the FOURTH time this information has been included in the Lawrence Labrador Lowdown. Parents are still crossing with their children through the valet line. Please use the painted yellow walkway when you park in the visitor spots or on the street. Crossing the parking lot through the valet line is extremely dangerous and not permitted. As cars are entering the parking lot, or backing out of spaces, they do not always see pedestrians who are randomly crossing. Thanks in advance for your help with this matter. We need to prevent a tragedy from happening in our parking lot.
