Donations Needed for Kid Connection: Kid Connection provides small groups of children time to work together to deal with common concerns such as self-confidence and positive social skills. Our facilitator, Paula Clark, has expressed a need for specific items to supplement her program. We know many of you may be willing to donate the items from your home. At this time, doll clothes andsmall dollhouse furniture are the requested items. Feel free to drop them off in the office. Thanks in advance for your support.

Office Update: Today Lawrence Elementary had to wish our Office Specialist, Kathleen Spiller, well as she completed her time with Lawrence Elementary. Kathleen has accepted another position within LVJUSD. We are happy for her, but sad for our school site. Kathleen’s positive spirit will be missed dearly.

Haunted House: Fifth grade parents, students, and staff are in the process of creating an amazing haunted house for Trunk or Treat. The entrance fee will be donated to our Science Camp fund to help lower the overall cost. Please make sure to support this great cause!
